The authority that owns and manages the airports in the Paris region, including Paris-Charles de Gaulle International Airport and Paris-Orly International Airport, was named Friday as an Official Supplier of Paris 2024.
Groupe ADP serves 476 cities, from Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Paris-Orly, connecting 20,900 flights each week. In 2015 the two airports welcomed almost 100 million passengers.
Groupe ADP will support Paris 2024 through three separate initiatives – the ceremonial reception services for the IOC Evaluation Commission visit to Paris in the spring of 2017, the delivery of a dedicated Paris 2024 marketing campaign in airport terminals in Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Paris-Orly, and the publication of editorial and promotional content in the official magazine of Groupe ADP, Paris Worldwide.
Bernard Lapasset, co-chairman of Paris 2024 said, “France and Paris are top global tourist destinations and Groupe ADP manages the main gateway for visitors to our country. Their quality services and knowledge of the tourism industry will be invaluable to the bid. We are very pleased to welcome them as Official Suppliers and to have their expertise as we continue to develop our plans and aim to welcome the world to Paris in 2024”.
Augustin de Romanet, Group ADP chairman added, “Groupe ADP is delighted to become Official Suppliers to the Paris 2024 bid and play a part in this unifying project which represents a unique opportunity to promote Paris as a world class city and a hub for international tourism. Paris 2024’s ambitions match the strategic vision of Groupe AP and if the bid is successful, a Paris Games will act as a catalyst in the development of Grand Paris and promote and grow further the city and region as a major global tourism destination”.
Last month Air France was appointed as the official airline supplier to the bid.
The Paris 2024 logo will appear on various Air France scheduled flights including long-haul Airbus A380 and Boeing 777 flights to Asia, the Americas, Africa and Oceania and medium-haul A320 Airbus flights to Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
Paris is bidding for the 2024 Olympic Games alongside Budapest, Rome and Los Angeles. The host city will be selected by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in September 2017.
