ACA Passenger Day

17 Nov 2023
Although there are more “world days” than there are days in the year, some of which are a little quirky, to say the least, until now there was no World Air Passenger’s Day. Surprising, given the 4.5 billion travellers worldwide who are the core focus of airport managers and airlines.

As a laboratory for the airport of the future Nice Côte d’Azur Airport - the second-busiest airport in France, operated by Aéroports de la Côte d'Azur, one of Mundys’s asset companies - has decided to kick start the idea and make every 17 November a special day devoted to people who explore the world, visit their loved ones or travel for professional reasons.

For this first edition, Nice Côte d’Azur Airport has got all the hub’s partners on board. Their combined efforts have resulted in a packed programme at every step of the passenger journey. At the entrances to car parks and terminals, staff will be ready and waiting to welcome passengers in person, wearing the badge of the day: a yellow heart on a purple background, with the words “World Air Passenger’s Day”. A red carpet, goodies, music, live performances, tasting sessions in airport stores, gifts, educational games, awareness-raising operations, fast-track queues assigned randomly, and more. At every step on the way to the aircraft door, passengers will be treated to a VIP welcome and a magical backdrop.

“Travelling is a celebration; flying is a dream. It is important to put pleasure and gratitude at the heart of the passenger journey. As well as making technological progress towards decarbonisation, we need to show that sobriety and contentment can go hand in hand,” explains Franck Goldnadel, Chairman of the Board, Aéroports de la Côte d’Azur.
