The Minister of Economy, Finance and Industrial and Digital Sovereignty is not aware of acts of any kind relating to the ADP group ” And “ the corresponding powers are exercised by the Prime Minister “, is it specified in a decree published in the Official Journal last Saturday. Élisabeth Borne will now take care of files relating to the operator of the Parisian airports Paris-CDG, Paris-Orly and Le Bourget.

According to the journalist Politico, Paul de Villepin, this shift is linked to the marriage between Sibylle, the sister of Bruno Le Maire, and Augustin de Romanet, the CEO of Groupe ADP. The Minister of the Economy will not have to manage a possible privatization of the public airport manager, wanted by Emmanuelle Macron during her first five-year term, before it is postponed following the Covid pandemic.

Groupe ADP manages a total of 25 airports worldwide, directly or through subsidiaries. Coming out of the red a year ago after the plunge due to the health crisis, ADP generated in 2022 a net profit (group share) of 516 million euros, finding 80.9% of its 2019 passengers.
