Lisbon operator Vinci bids for Ljubljana Airport

By Kevin Rozario |

Concessions and construction group Vinci has told Reuters that it is bidding for Aerodrom Ljubljana, the operator of Solvenia’s main airport, Ljubljana Jože Pučnik (LJU).


Aerodrom Ljubljana was officially put up for sale in March when hired consultancy KPMG publicly called for non-binding offers of interest in buying a 75.5% controlling stake in the airport operator.


The sales process involves multiple shareholders as Aerodrom Ljubljana is 50.7% owned by the Slovenian government with a further 26% by eight other entities with a holding of at least 1%.


Vinci’s airports division operates 23 airports globally [10 each in France and Portugal and three in Cambodia] the biggest by traffic being Lisbon Airport.


In 2013, LJU had 1.3m passengers and is forecasting a rise of +4% this year. In 2013, Aerodrom Ljubljana had operating revenue of €31.3m ($42.7m) of which revenue from commercial services amounted to €8.7m ($11.9m) down -1.4% on the previous year.
