To become the leading global group in the infrastructure sector within the next five years (primarily airports and motorway networks), investing in technological innovation, sustainability and quality of services for travellers. With this goal Atlantiaholding company of Benetton family active in the sector of motorway and airport infrastructures and services related to mobility, has given way to Mundysa new reality that presents itself with a renewed shareholding structure, a new management and new development guidelines.
The novelty was presented at MilanWhere Giampiero Massolo (President of Mundys), Alessandro Benetton (president of Edizione and vice president of Mundys) ed Henry Lakes (CEO of Edizione) brought together for the first time the top management of the main asset companies of the group, including Abertis, Elizabeth River Crossing, Telepass, Aéroports de la Côte d'Azur, Costanera group, Rome airports And YunexTraffic.
For Alessandro Benetton the birth of the new reality represents the conclusion of a year of work in which a profound change and a strong discontinuity of values and business have been carried out. On the other hand, he continued, "it is the start of a new chapter in our entrepreneurial history, which we want to write with the new Blackstone partners and the new professionals who have joined the group, bringing added value in terms of international development , innovation and sustainable growth”.
While Giampiero Massolo, highlighted how “today a traveler can leave from Fiumicino airport, land in Nice, travel by car from Paris to the north of France, head towards the United Kingdom through the tunnel under the Channel, drive through the streets of London, come back and pay for parking with Telepass. During his journey, he will find a Mundys infrastructure or service alongside him ”. Looking to the future, for Massolo the goal now is to complete the transformation of the group into a global operator of integrated and sustainable mobility, capable of managing not only the infrastructures, but all the different stages of the journey of people and passengers, with efficient and quality technologies and services, also reducing direct and indirect emissions.
As part of this new growth strategy, continued Massolo, the group's asset companies will be called upon to play a fundamental role. In this regard, Massolo cited, among others, Rome airports as "a fundamental opportunity for the country"; Abertis which "will be the platform for the group's global growth in the motorway sector"; Telepass which "has already transformed itself into a highly advanced fintech, which makes a wide range of mobility services available to its 7.5 million customers, from taking out insurance to purchasing a ski pass".
Today Mundys (which has 23 thousand employees, of which 6 thousand in Italy alone) is present in 24 countries. Over 3 billion transits of light and heavy vehicles are made on the group's networks every year, while the Italian (Fiumicino and Ciampino) and French (Nice, Cannes and Saint Tropez) airports host 60 million passengers and a further 7 million people use the mobility services of Telepass. It is also present in more than 600 major cities (including London, Miami, Singapore, Bogota) with urban mobility platforms for streamlining traffic and reducing emissions.
