Vinci and Limak look at concession to operate Antalya Airport

Turkey’s DHMI has obtained expression of interest from Vinci and Limak regarding the management of the airport.

France-based construction company Vinci, along with Turkey’s Limak Holding, is reportedly looking to bid for a 25-year concession to run Antalya International Airport (AYT) in Turkey.

Turkey’s General Directorate of State Airports Authority (DHMI) has received an expression of interest from both companies, reported Bloomberg.

On 1 December, a new tender will be floated for managing the airport.

As of now, Germany’s Fraport and Turkey’s TAV Havalimanlari Holding are responsible for the operations of Antalya Airport.

In February, Fraport Group and TAV Airports joint venture (JV) extended its contract to oversee Antalya International Airport by two years up to the end of 2026 through an agreement with the Turkish Government.

This extension was approved due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Since 1999, Fraport has been in charge of the management of Antalya Airport.

Fraport, along with IC Ictas, secured the tender to run the infrastructure for $2.7bn (€2.4bn) in March 2007.

Later in 2018, TAV took over IC Ictas’s share in a deal valued at $408.54m (€360m).

According to data published by the state airport authority, this Turkish gateway handled 20.1 million passengers in the first ten months of this year.

Besides, air passengers’ traffic in the country was below the levels recorded before the pandemic.

Meanwhile, Istanbul’s Sabiha Gokcen International Airport (SAW) is operated by Malaysia Airports Holdings.
