European Heritage Days
Behind the scenes at Groupe ADP
Take flight at the Group's head office
As part of the European Heritage Days event, Groupe ADP is opening the doors of its head office to the public on Saturday 21st September, from 10h00 to 18h00. Young and old alike will be free to wander around the building, with access to the atrium, the Innovation Hub area and the terrace, boasting a view of Concorde and the Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport taxiways. In addition, there will be a host of surprises for visitors... ask us for the full programme!
This constitutes a first for Groupe ADP, which has decided to open the doors of its head office to welcome the public as part of the 36th edition of the European Heritage Days initiative. The new head office was inaugurated in March 2017, and is located at the heart of Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport. As well as providing an open window onto the airport, this project reflects the global ambition of the group. Visitors on the day will be able to enjoy an immersive experience as they try out a flight simulator or aircraft marshalling simulator. They can also get a sneak peek at the new business workwear, watch three films about the Group and visit the Innovation Hub, which will show off its new home equipped with an amazing giant screen. The highlight of the show: a chance to visit the building's terrace to admire the ballet-like movements of the aircraft at Paris-Charles de Gaulle, and the Air France Concorde on display at the edge of the taxiways. Lastly, after enjoying ice cream and candy floss, you can record your visit for posterity in the form of a souvenir photo to take home!
