Spotters Day at Belfast International Airport

400 fans across the world to attended VINCI Airports’ Spotters Day 2019

Nearly 400 aviation and photo fans who roam the world’s airports and actively share their passion on social networks, also called “Spotters”, will benefit from a unique opportunity this week-end on the occasion of the 2nd edition of VINCI Airports’ Spotters Day: go behind the scenes in airports to take exclusive pictures.

This year, VINCI Airports wants to bring forward the international dimension of the community of enthusiasts that crosses borders. Operating the most international and diversified network of the industry, VINCI Airports will mobilize 10 out of the 12 countries of its network: Brazil, Cambodia, Chile, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, France, Japan, Portugal, Serbia and the United Kingdom. After the success of its first edition in 2018, which gathered 200 Spotters in 8 countries of the network, VINCI Airports will further encourage creativity and sharing between participants this year through the organization of an international photo competition.

By sharing their experience and best shots on social media, Spotters promote the magic of aviation and the positive contribution of airports within the territories. VINCI Airports’ Spotters Day also aims at showcasing the wide range of expertise and technical know-how at play to operate airports on a daily basis.

Anne Le Bour, Director of Communications and Innovation at VINCI Concessions and VINCI Airports, commented: “For us, airports are more than just infrastructure, they are a place to share, experience and meet. From Costa Rica to Portugal through Japan, the Spotters' passion highlights the many areas of expertise of those who, behind the scenes, operate airports every day. It is with great pride that we are opening our doors to the Spotters again this year so that they can discover and share the specificities of each of the airports in our network.”

Deborah Harris, Belfast International Airport’s PR and Marketing Manager, said, “We were delighted to be able to welcome our local aviation enthusiasts from the Ulster Aviation Society on a behind the scenes tour of the airport. VINCI Spotters Day is a unique occasion and one that we hope to repeat each year.
