ENGIE renews its intermediate stop assistance contract with the Nouméa airport

November 7, 2016

The Chamber of Commerce and Industry of New Caledonia (CCI-NC), which manages the international airport of Nouméa-La Tontouta, has awarded the public service concession for intermediate stop assistance at the Nouméa international airport to ENGIE, through its subsidiary Pacific Airport ENGIE. The seven-year, €90 million contract covers all ground-based, aviation-related activities.


The intermediate stop assistance contract covers all aircraft and passenger support activities, including passenger registration, freight management, baggage handling (security, loading, unloading), aircraft cleaning, runway operations and catering (preparation, loading and unloading of meal trays, and onboard duty-free).

With nearly 500,000 passengers in 2015, New Caledonia’s international Nouméa-La Tontouta airport, entirely refurbished in 2012, enjoys an expansion of air traffic, growing in 2015 by 3.8%. Pacific Airport ENGIE was awarded this contract thanks to the commitment of its 175 employees, the quality of its comprehensive range of services, recognized by the airlines that serve the airport, and to the consolidation of all its activities under one entity.

At the contract signing, Jennifer Seagoe, President of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of New Caledonia, stated, “The CCI-NC is delighted with the renewal of this partnership that will serve to improve the platform’s operation, with the objective, shared by all, of enhancing passenger welfare.”

In the words of François Laforest, Regional Director of Pacifique Ouest division within ENGIE France Réseaux, “The renewal of this contract attests to our experience providing integrated, custom-tailored services in a specific overseas context. ENGIE is proud to play a key role in this project of paramount importance to New Caledonia’s tourism development.”

ENGIE provides innovative services to airports around the world

The Group currently services 34 airports around the world, including Washington D.C., Abu Dhabi, Cape Town, La Réunion and Singapore, and handles 40 million pieces of baggage. These airport services generate some €160 million in global revenues.

Against the background of increased air traffic (+100% by 2030, according to forecasts), airports are seeking to reduce their operations’ energy consumption and environmental footprint. ENGIE provides solutions that integrate design, supply, installation, commissioning and technical installation maintenance, in particular aeronautical control and aircraft circulation systems (including control tower, regional control center, navigation aids and telecommunications networks).

These activities address public and private airport operators and civil aviation control authorities, as well as airline companies and other stakeholders.

ENGIE develops its businesses (power, natural gas, energy services) around a model based on responsible growth to take on the major challenges of energy’s transition to a low-carbon economy: access to sustainable energy, climate-change mitigation and adaptation and the rational use of resources. The Group provides individuals, cities and businesses with highly efficient and innovative solutions largely based on its expertise in four key sectors: renewable energy, energy efficiency, liquefied natural gas and digital technology. ENGIE employs 154,950 people worldwide and achieved revenues of € 69.9 billion in 2015. The Group is listed on the Paris and Brussels stock exchanges (ENGI) and is represented in the main international indices: CAC 40, BEL 20, DJ Euro Stoxx 50, Euronext 100, FTSE Eurotop 100, MSCI Europe, DJSI World, DJSI Europe and Euronext Vigeo (Eurozone 120, Europe 120 and France 20).
