Nice Airport Management

In 2008, as part of the reform of regional airports' management regimes, a brand new structure, Aéroports de la Côte d’Azur, was implemented and granted a 37 year concession.

The remit of this company is to manage Nice and Cannes-Mandelieu airports.

The statutes of this new company provide for the unlimited export of airport teams’ expertise anywhere in the world.

 Nice Airport Management, a subsidiary of Aéroports de la Côte d’Azur, was created with the aim of providing consultancy and services of the highest quality.

The services we offer you have already been tried and tested at our own airports. We adapt them to your specific situations.

Our services are carried out exclusively by experts with experience on the ground.
