Four companies have submitted their bids for the Nikola Tesla Airport concession, while one of the bidders, a Chinese consortium of companies, has dropped out of the competition all together.
The following companies have sent their bids – a Swiss-French consortium Zurich Airport, Eiffage and Meridian Eastern Europe Investments, an Indian-Greek consortium GMR Infrastructure Ltd and Terna, the French company, Vinci Airports, and a South Korean-Turkish-Cypriot consortium of companies Incheon International Airport Corporation, Yatirimlari ve Islatme, and VTB Capital Infrastructure.
The Chinese consortium of HNA and China National Aero-Technology, joined by the Cypriot company Severika, which qualified for the second phase of the competition, didn’t submit a financial bid in line with the terms of the public call.
The Government of Serbia and the Nikola Tesla Airport launched a public call for submission of bids on 10th February, 2017. The concession deal, which entails financing, development through construction and reconstruction, maintenance and management of the airport’s infrastructure and performing the activities of an operator, is given for a period of 25 years.
Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic has said previously that a preliminary decision on the best bids would be reached before 25th December, and that the selected concessionaire might pay between 350 and 450 million EUR for the concession.
She promised that the concession agreement would be completely transparent, and that the future concessionaire would also be paying an annual fee.
