Privatization of Nikola Tesla Airport starts

Following the decision to privatize the biggest Serbian airport, Serbian Government’s is going to carry out the process by granting concession rights in two stages.

During the first stage, the concession candidates will have to sign a confidentiality agreement banning them from releasing any information about the privatization process, as well as submit a non-binding offer with their concession proposal for the airport.

In the second round, the potential concessionaires will have to submit binding offers in line with the Decree on the Procedure on Granting Concession in Two Stages, adopted by the Serbian government on 4th January. The Decree stipulates that if the estimated value of the airport exceeds 50 million EUR, the concession procedures will be carried out in two phases.

Only those candidates for whom a relevant public authority ascertains that have met the stipulated conditions would be eligible to participate in the second round of the concession. Their bids will be rated and, based on that, the bidders will be ranked.

In December 2016, Serbian government adopted the Law on Managing Airports which does allow a possibility of Nikola Tesla Airport being privatized via a concession with a view of securing enough funds for its development and its more efficient commercial utilization.
