ADP Ingénierie’s €15m (£13m) contract was awarded following a competitive tender.

ADP Ingénierie CEO Gratien Maire said: "One of the challenge will be to maintain the airport capacity and operations at all time during the execution of the construction packages, which are expected to start on 2019."
