Join the innovation contest to give life and soul to the future Terminal 1!

Attention all innovators and entrepreneurs! Marseille Provence Airport and Agorize are excited to announce the “Design Our Future Passenger Experience” Challenge

This is a unique opportunity to showcase your creative ideas and make a positive impact on the future of travel. The contest is open to all startups and students with innovative solutions to enhance the passenger experience.

About the program

The climate crisis is forcing us to rethink our practices, and aviation is at the forefront of it, marking a turning point in its history. Indeed, the sector has begun its environmental transition, and aims to meet the ecological challenges of our century.

The presence of an airfield is a great opportunity. It must act as a catalyst for projects that serve its territory and its inhabitants.

The aim is to make the Toussus-le-Noble and Lognes-Emerainville airfields benchmarks in terms of innovation, sustainable development and synergies with their surroundings.

Do you work in a startup, a SME, an ETI, a large group or an association and do you think your organization could have a positive impact on the aerodromes of tomorrow?

Propose your solution and have the opportunity to develop your project with the ADP group on the Toussus le Noble or Lognes-Emerainville airfields: 1st and 2nd French airfields, 5th and 10th French airport in number of movements!
