Slovak airports face privatisation

Slovakia is getting ready to privatise its two biggest airports, in Bratislava and Košice, next year. Transport Minister Pavol Prokopovič has already held talks with top managers of Austria's Schwechat airport who are interested in investing in the Milan Rastislav Stefánik airport in Bratislava.

Professionals tend to oppose the merger of the Bratislava and Vienna airports suggesting it would not benefit Bratislava. Schwechat, which considers Bratislava a serious rival, is the most expensive European destination for airlines.

Head of the Slovak Administration of Airports' (SSL) transformation department Peter Majkovič says the transformation of airports approved by the cabinet is on the right path. The new law on airports should be given teeth from November. After transforming the airports into state owned joint-stock companies, an advisor for the selection of a strategic investor will be chosen, and finally, an international tender will be announced in cooperation with the advisor.
