Within its capacity as concession holder for the Nice Côte d'Azur Airport, the company Aéroports de la Côte d'Azur provides airlines with its facilities and infrastructure, for the purpose of enabling the fulfilment of transport contracts, which bind them to their passenger customers, in turn enabling the latter to take their flights.

  • the management of security controls,
  • assistance for handicapped individuals,
  • the management of the services provided for passengers (fast-track queueing, lounge access, VIP welcome service, lost and found items).
