Egis has been the operator partner of Abidjan airport since 1996.
On June 27th, during the Routes Africa exhibition held in Tenerife, the Abidjan airport (AERIA) received the « Routes Africa Marketing Award 2016 » in the airports of less than 4 million passengers’ category. The prize recognizes the performance of the airport with respect to its « Routes Development » initiatives directed towards the airline companies who make up the jury.
Over the years and throughout difficult periods for the country, Egis has continued to perform its mission successfully. The renewal in 2010 of its airport concession for a further 20 years demonstrates the confidence of the government of Côte d'Ivoire in the expertise and specialist skills offered by Egis. It also expands its remit to the development of Aérocité .
As an operator partner, Egis supports the concessionaire to operate and develop the airport, providing its expertise in the key areas of airport operations, aviation and ancillary areas. The Group has put senior managers in place with a track record in airport management tasked with delivering efficient management while ensuring safety and quality of service.
To drive growth at the airport, Egis upgraded the facilities to handle the airbus A380. Abidjan will be the first airport in West Africa with the facilities for this type of aircraft. All of these projects contribute to the economic development of Côte d’Ivoire.
The Abidjan International Airport (AERIA) received its first ISO 9001 certification.
