CAST and Airport Research Center were chosen by EUROCONTROL to perform a simulation study on the impact of the European Football Championship 2016 at Bordeaux Airport.

This study prepared Bordeaux Airport for the increased demand during the EURO 2016 and enabled the airport to identify potential bottlenecks in advance.

Various scenarios supported Bordeaux Airport to sharpen their focus on the essential parameters in terms of fan handling and to find an optimized concept for this exceptional situation.
