Bulgaria’s Transport Minister Ivaylo Moskovski has informed that concession procedures for the airports in Sofia and Plovdiv are be opened by end-2015.

Moskovski, as cited by Sega daily, reminded Tuesday that an attempt to award a concession contract for the cargo terminal of Plovdiv Airport had been launched before but no candidates had applied for the procedure.

He underscored that this time the procedure would cover the entire Plovdiv Airport.

The program of Bulgaria’s current government only envisages a concession procedure for the civilian airport in Plovdiv, which is now used mainly by low-cost airlines, which is to be wrapped up by 2018.

Speaking after a Bulgarian-Bavarian economic forum, Economy Minister Bozhidar Lukarski announced Monday that Munich Airport had expressed interest in the concession procedure for Sofia Airport.
