Groupe ADP, Official Partner of the Paris 2024
Olympic and Paralympic Games

Groupe ADP, world's leading airport operator, is an Official Partner of the Paris 2024 Olympic (from 22 July to 11 August 2024) and Paralympic (from 28 August to 8 September 2024) Games. The group, which welcomes nearly 90 million passengers each year in Paris, in Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Paris-Orly, 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-Charles de Gaulle and Paris-Orly, gateways to the Paris 2024 Olympic Games

On the occasion of the Paris 2024 Games, the Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Paris-Orly airports will be one of the gateways for the 15,000 athletes and the 208 qualified delegations, especially the transcontinental ones.

Indeed, it is from the Paris airports that a large part of the athletes will set off to conquer their victories and dreams, followed by thousands of delegation members, journalists, supporters and spectators.

In total, there will be no less than 60,000 accredited persons, 260 dignitaries and 28,000 media, with 10 accreditation zones at Paris-CDG and 4 zones at Paris-Orly, i.e. at least one accreditation zone per terminal. In addition, 115,000 pieces of luggage are expected for the delegations and the media, including 47,000 pieces of sports equipment and 17,000 pieces of oversized luggage.

Finally, with the entire airport community, more than 5,000 of Groupe ADP's employees in Paris are mobilised to put their expertise and sense of welcome at the service of the success of this global even.

More inclusive and more responsible, two main pillars for the Paris 2024 Games

Millions of travellers, as well as the group's employees and all the neighbouring territories, will be able to experience unforgettable emotions during the Paris 2024 Games. To this end, the two Paris airports will be real places of life, entertainment and celebration, vibrating to the rhythm of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Groupe ADP is building the airport of tomorrow, accessible and open to all, at the heart of an air industry that is reinventing itsel. 

Paris 2024, for its part, aims to leave a common and lasting legacy for the entire airport community, such as improving the quality of rail-air travel within the CDG 2 station at Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport. To this end, the two Paris airports will be real places of life, entertainment and celebration, vibrating to the rhythm of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

A great logistical challenge for the group

Groupe ADP's responsibility in the context of this partnership will be reflected in preparing the operational management of routes and luggage, implementing work to adapt our facilities, improving accessibility on our platforms, with a particular and renewed attention paid to people with disabilities.

Increasing support for employee commitment through sport, which has been widespread since 2022, notably through the financing of various individual or group sports projects: this mission is been entrusted by Pascal Gentil, double Olympic bronze medallist in taekwondo, who has joined the group to promote and share the values of sport and the Olympics among employees and in the regions, and to contribute to our project of excellence in airport reception for athletes and delegations.

This partnership is a proud and meaningful alliance: Paris 2024's call "Let's open up the Games" resonates with our mission to welcome the world for the universal celebration that are the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games. 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. This is a magnificent challenge for the entire airport community and for our territories, and a unique opportunity to demonstrate our know-how and commitment to hospitality. Groupe ADP with all its employees, will be there to make Paris 2024 an unforgettable collective success.
