"They are the winning bidders because they offered the lowest price, which was the only criterion for assessing the bids," said ministry spokesman Martin Kóňa, as quoted by the TASR newswire. Deloitte commented that, apart from leasing, another solution could be to invite a strategic investor to take an interest in the airport.
