ENGIE expects a growing need for FM services, and especially in airports. Airports offer great potential with passengers’ volumes to double by 2036 (source : IATA 2017) and the associated expansion of the infrastructures. In 2017, ENGIE cumulated a turnover of 300 Million euros with more than 40 airports in the world such as Changi in Singapore, Boston-Logan in the USA, Rome-Fiumicino in Italy, Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Paris Orly in France, Amsterdam Schipol in the Netherlands, Brussels-Zaventem in Belgium or Montreal Trudeau in Canada.


Combined, all the Group's skills make it possible to meet more than 50% of an airport's operational expenses. ENGIE’s businesses cover the entire chain, from specific airport services (runway markings, turnkey sorting systems, air traffic control systems, etc.) to more generic systems (security infrastructures, energy, mobility).
