The disputed project, signed in 2010, has been put on hold and will likely be postponed beyond the scheduled opening planned for 2017. The planned airport north of Nantes, which is scheduled to replace the city's current airport in 2017, is a pet project of Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault, who was the city's mayor from 1989 to 2013.
