A US company has shown interest in becoming a concessionaire of the airport in Bulgaria’s Gorna Oryahovitsa, according to Transport Minister Ivaylo Moskovski.
Moskovski, as cited by Capital daily, told the parliamentary transport committee that the investment intention notice of the company, which had been submitted to the Transport Ministry, envisaged a plan to keep the current functions of the international airport.
He said that the company also wanted to establish a production facility for recycling aircraft that could create 500-600 jobs.
Moskovski made clear that the preparation of analyses of the concession had been launched.
According to reports of the Gorna Oryahvitsa airport, adequate investments in the runway, the buildings, and the equipment could make it an attractive site for low-cost companies, cargo and business aviation.
As regards the efforts of the Transport Ministry to conclude a concession agreement for Sofia Airport, the authorities revealed that the candidates will be required to invest in the expansion and upgrade of the old terminal currently used by low-cost airlines.
The concession procedure is to be launched by the government in around a month, according to Sega daily.
