  • digitisation of all indoor advertising networks with 46 LCD screens,
  • decluttering of the airport halls,

  • installation of six outdoor Ultra-HD displays.
 In line with the airport's 2018 redevelopment, JCDecaux proposes a renewed range of displays, some of which is specially designed for the airport to ensure harmonious integration with the architecture of the new passenger areas.

This upgrade is in line with the efforts launched this year to expand and modernise the existing infrastructure.”
