Réunion Roland Garros airport has seen a succession of development and extension projects over the last few decades. Alongside these developments, passenger traffic has increased by 500,000 over a period of ten years.
The investment plan for 2011-2022 has been split into two phases. The first, which focused on aeronautical infrastructure, technical services buildings and the passenger terminal and which cost a total of 120 million euros, ended at the end of 2015. The second phase (2016-2020) involves equipping the airport to receive an annual traffic of more than 3 million passengers in 2025 and devising a long-term economic development strategy around the platform and reconciling it with the forthcoming regulatory changes.
