Munich Airport and Meridiam, jointly with STRABAG (the Group), have been awarded with the Sofia Airport Concession by decision of the Minister of Transport, Information Technology and Communications. As of July 29, the project has now entered a new phase and the Group is actively working and fully mobilized for the future of Sofia Airport, in a long-term partnership with the Ministry of Transport.
This follows a tender process which had attracted the interest of some of the best airport operators globally, and conducted by the Bulgarian Government with the support of the IFC (World Bank) and the EBRD in line with international and industry standards. As is common in this type of tender process, the Commission for Protection of Competition will now proceed with its review.
The Group is working closely with all stakeholders to implement its development plan to further enhance the attractivity of the airport and the economy.
