The government is ready to sell the biggest Slovak airport. However, the actual privatisation process will start next year, and no tender has been announced yet; nevertheless, four big investors have made their preliminary bids.
American company Glenealy International, which co-runs the Manchester airport, the fifth largest in Europe, South-American company Aeropuertos Argentina 2000, Austrian Airlines, and the Vienna International Airport have all expressed interest in the Bratislava airport.
Each of the companies would want the Bratislava airport to grow into a fast-developing international hub, writes the daily SME.
