12.04.2007: Participation in tender for terminal operations at Antalya Airport
Flughafen Wien AG announced today that it will submit a bid - together with the Turkish partner Celebi Hava Servisi A.S. - for the concession to operate the three terminals at Antalya Airport. The term of the concession covers a period of 17 years. Revenues are comprised of a passenger tariff and turnover duties from the non-aviation sector. The concession will be awarded through a tender by the Directorate of State Airports Authority in Ankara.
The Antalya project represents an excellent match for the internationalisation strategy of Flughafen Wien AG. Antalya Airport comprises one national and two international terminals, and is located roughly 10 km east of the city centre. With ca. 16 million passengers per year, Antalya is the largest tourist airport in Turkey. The two international terminals are currently operated by CELEBI and FRAPORT. Plans by the government now call for the awarding of a concession for the operation of all three terminals. Antalya Airport has registered strong above-average increases in the number of passengers over recent years, and this positive trend is expected to continue in the future. For the Turkish economy, the fourth quarter of 2006 and full year 2007 are expected to bring dynamic growth in exports and rising consumer confidence.
