ISAP continuing to fight for Bratislava and Košice airports

THE INDEPENDENT Slovak Airport Partners consortium (ISAP), unsuccessful in recent privatization tender for a 66-percent share in Bratislava and Košice airports, will likely take its complaints about the tender to the European Commission.

Johann Frank, director of the Vienna Airport Consulting Company, an ISAP member, said the consortium was not satisfied with the fact that the Austrian-based TwoOne consortium had won the privatisation tender. "We have no problem losing when the competition is fair and transparent. However, the ISAP bid was not fairly evaluated," said Frank.

ISAP representatives also want to take legal steps against Economy Minister Jirko Malchárek, who recently told the SME daily that ISAP was lying.

ISAP claims that it offered the highest total price for the airports, while Transport Minister Pavol Prokopovič said some of the money bid was deferred, and refused to acknowledge the whole bid.
