The airport of Nïmes (Provence-France ) has awarded the management and operational responsibility to the french service-group Véolia.
Véolia won against Keolis group.
Challenge for Véolia is to boost traffic.
Currently only Ryanair serves FNI with flights to Charleroi,Luton,East Midlands and Liverpool.
The number of currently 240.000 passengers should be brought to about 320.000 within one year,by diversifying the number of airlines serving Nïmes.
