Bordeaux Airport: "Our research highlighted a real need for a product tailored to accommodate the low-cost airlines, a product that would sit alongside our existing regional and international airport products. billi was conceived with the backing of the French Authorities and the key regional stakeholders. We look forward to welcoming many low-cost airlines delivering a growing number of tourists and business travellers to our region," Pascal Personne, CEO. Source: Bordeaux Airport, 08-Sep-09.
