Three firms bid on Bratislava airport

AT LEAST three companies have expressed interest in the privatization of Bratislava's MR Štefánik airport.

Danish Copenhagen Airports, Austrian Flughafen Wien and Czech-Slovak private equity firm Penta confirmed their interest to the SITA news agency.

The state is selling a 66-percent stake in the Bratislava airport. Flemming Petersen, the vice president of the Danish company, said that Copenhagen Airports documented its interest to the advisor individually.

"We are mostly interested in the Bratislava airport, however, we are also open to the possibility of privatizing Košice airport as well," said Petersen.

According to Michael Fazekas of Flughafen Wien, his company is interested in privatizing the Bratislava airport in a consortium that also includes Slovak members. However, the company will keep the majority shares in the consortium.

Penta investment group also registered to compete for Bratislava and Košice airports. It is believed that the group entered the public tender in a consortium with another partner.
