PARIS (Reuters) – Paris airports company Groupe ADP has become Paris 2024 Olympics and Paralympics official partner, organisers said on Tuesday.
“The group, which welcomes nearly 90 million passengers each year in Paris, will put its expertise in terms of reception at the service of the athletes, the Olympic family and spectators from all over the world,” Paris 2024 said in a statement.
“This partnership is a proud and meaningful alliance: Paris 2024’s call ‘Games wide open’ resonates with our mission to welcome the world for the universal celebration that are the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games,” Augustin de Romanet, Chairman and CEO of Groupe ADP, said.
“During the summer of 2024, France will be the centre of the world. It is in our airports that the Games will begin and will end for many: everyone will make their first and last memories there.”
In 2022, Groupe ADP handled 86.7 million passengers at Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Paris-Orly.
The Paris Olympics will be held from July 26-Aug. 11 while the Paralympics will take place from Aug. 28-Sept. 8.
