hings are looking good for French airport operator Groupe ADP – the former Aéroports de Paris (ADP).The company presented its 2018 full year results on 15th February. With a total of 281.4 million passengers (+7.6%) last year, Groupe ADP has become the world's leading airport operator in terms of passenger traffic. More than half of this traffic — 156 million passengers (+10.4%) — was generated by Groupe ADP's TAV Airports subsidiary, which manages a portfolio of 15 airports in five countries (Istanbul-Atatürk,Ankara-Esenboga, Izmir,Antalya, Bodrum-Milas in Turkey; Monastir and Hammamet in Tunisia;Tbilisi and Batumi in Georgia; Skopje and Ohrid in Macedonia; and Medina, Qassim, Hail and Yanbu in Saudi Arabia). Taking second place behind Groupe ADP in 2018 are the Spanish group Aena (264 million passengers, +5.8%), followed by Vinci Airports (195 million passengers, +6.8%) and Germany's Fraport (176 million passengers, +9.3%). In 2019, Groupe ADP will have to compensate for the closure of Istanbul-Atatürk airport (68 million passengers), as operations are transferred to Istanbul's brand-new megaairport, which was officially inaugurated in October 2018 and is expected to be fully operational in April. "We have further growth potential, including TAV's acquisition of Antalya Airport in 2018, and several projects, including Havana, Cuba; Hokkaido, Japan; and Sofia, Bulgaria," comments Augustin de Romanet, CEO of Groupe ADP.
