Serving more than 7.98 million passengers in 2011, Aéroports de Lyon is the fourth-busiest French airport. It serves all aviation market segments—including conventional and low-cost airlines, charter flights, freight carriers, and business aviation. The airport boasts a balanced business portfolio focused on passenger, parking, and trade services. Its substantial development capacity, 900 hectares of resources, is unequalled in France in terms of land. This, along with the dynamism of the Rhône Alps region, which attracts visitors to southeastern France, promises Aéroports de Lyon a major role in the future European airport landscape.
As an airport infrastructure administrator under state concession, Aéroports de Lyon needed to update its 40-year business plan. In addition, it required the ability to analyze its infrastructure investment capacity and economic levers to accommodate a projected 15 million passengers annually by 2020.
Aéroports de Lyon worked with Oracle Partner Partake Consulting to implement Oracle Hyperion Planning and Oracle Essbase. With the implementation, Aéroports de Lyon integrated budget planning, investment, and detailed analyses of airport activities and projects into a single application. It also used the solution to develop financial plans that improve investment calculations and maximize potential economic development—helping to demonstrate short- and long-term profitability.
“Against a backdrop of strong expansion and development potential, Oracle solutions provide the flexibility and power we require to carry out a long-term strategic study and establish and adapt financial plans,” said Catherine Ville-Gali, Head of Management Control and Charging Department, Aéroports de Lyon.
Aéroports de Lyon worked with Oracle Partner Partake Consulting to develop a 40 year business plan and enable profit-and-loss and investment cube modeling to oversee the organization’s investment program until the end of the agreement for state concession in 2047.
