Paris-Le Bourget metropolitan department Le Bourget is one of the eight cities included in the new Etablissement Public Territorial “Paris Terres d’Envol”, a component of the Métropole du Grand Paris created in early 2016. Local municipalities are fully involved with the airport in the preliminary works launched by the Société du Grand Paris. The studies take into account the main aspects of the development of the south zone of the airport. The deployment of certain of its installations in the airport environment provide an opportunity which is included in the development studies. Groupe ADP is working on redefining the development plan for the airport and the development of the airport maintenance group. It is also involved in the creation of hangars and aircraft parking areas in the central zone. Civil airfields for general aviation Groupe ADP owns and manages ten civilian general aviation airfields in the Paris-Île de France region: ◆ Meaux-Esbly, covering 103 hectares. Aeronautic Club de France celebrated 120 years in 2017; ◆ Pontoise-Cormeilles-en-Vexin, covering 237 hectares;

◆ the quality of its aviation facilities; ◆ its proximity to Paris;

◆ the presence of the world’s leading global corporate aviation service operators, guaranteeing travel service quality, discretion and confidentiality; ◆ the presence on site of the European maintenance centres of three of the five main international business aircraft manufacturers; ◆ the possibility of landing at the airport at all hours, within certain limits, and of reaching destinations not served by traditional commercial airlines; ◆ the quality of the ground services and the possibility of holding meetings at the airport itself. Competition In 2017, Paris-Le Bourget airport maintained its position as Europe’s leading business aviation company and continues to see growth in its traffic. The airport is therefore much ahead of its main competitors, Nice and Geneva, despite their growth. The Paris-Le Bourget airport continues to draw the main business aviation market players, which include companies and support companies (Signature Flight Support, Jetex, Universal Aviation, Advanced Air Support, Dassault Falcon Services and Unijet/SkyValet) and sawmajor international manufacturers (Dassault Falcon, Cessna and Embraer) install their main European facilities at Le Bourget. The Airbus Helicopters factory (helicopter blade manufacturing) was also commissioned in 2017 and a 5,000 sq.m . apprentice training centre for the aviation industry will open in September 2019. Other companies continue to request land on which to develop or set up their operations and are submitting projects for the coming years. All of the activities are part of the announced development connected with the “Métropole du Grand Paris” project, and particularly the future building of the Grand Paris Express “Le Bourget Aéroport” train station planned for 2024. Diversification projects are already planned at Bourget, such as the 24,000 sq.m . Art conservation centre expected to open in 2019, which will allow major museums to benefit from a specialised venue offering large storage areas close to Paris, while art galleries and exhibitions in Paris will find a secure logistics hub in this state-of-the-art facility with easy access to runways and customs services.
