We prove a Pontryagin Maximum Principle for optimal control problems in the space of probability measures, where the dynamics is given by a transport equation with non-local velocity. We formulate this first-order optimality condition using the formalism of subdifferential calculus in Wasserstein spaces. We show that the geometric approach based on needle variations and on the evolution of the covector (here replaced by the evolution of a mesure on the dual space) can be translated into this formalism.
