SNC Lavalin is leaving the Grand Case airport

According to information revealed by the Canadian newspaper La Presse, SNC-Lavalin, which operates the Grand Case airport, has decided to sell its subsidiary in France; a company which manages 17 airports including Saint-Martin’s. 

This means that the Grand Case Airport will have to once again change its operator. SNC Lavalin is said to have made an offer to Impact Holding and the investment firm Ciclad – this offer would have been accepted.

SNC-Lavalin is a Canadian group which is established all over the world where it has created several subsidiaries. France was one of its markets.

"SNC’s French activities, which employ 1100 people, "no longer completely match the group’s business strategy," reported La Presse, based on an internal document that it had acquired.

The group confirmed to us that it started a process of consultation with the works councils in France in the respect of the French rules.
