Aeroport Montpellier Mediterranee

Montpellier Méditerranée Airport is the 9th French airport and the 1st airport in Languedoc Roussillon.

In 1938, the first aeroplane lands at Fréjorgues.

In 1946, the first civil airport terminal opens.

In 1964, the Montpellier CCI obtains temporary commercial management of the airport.

In 1974, Montpellier CCI is given authorisation to run the airport on a commercial basis for 30 years.

In 1994, Fréjorgues airport becomes Montpellier Méditerranée Airport.

In 2001, due to the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center at New York, the opening of the Mediterranean TGV line and the departure of Air Liberté, the number of passengers using the airport drops significantly. The Montpellier Méditerranée Airport handles 1,545,000 passengers.

In 2003, the airport is officially declared to be a "national interest airport". This government decision, taken within the context of changes to decentralisation legislation, enables the Montpellier platform to attain the status of a private company with public capital. In addition, the airport concession is renewed, enabling Montpellier CCI to continue developing the airport up to 2008 as the managing authority, with the signature of a new set of specifications.

Montpellier, which had been one of the aiports that suffered the most in France from the difficult economic conditions of the previous year, has succeeded in recovering its profits considerably, with a summer period that attained positive traffic results. Also this summer, the airport recorded 251,251 passengers for the months of July and August 2005 alone, or an increase of 4,51% in comparison with summer 2004.
