Airports Authority of India Key Developments

Govt Kicks Off Airport Privatisation

GMR Infrastructure Limited (BSE:532754) and GVK Power and Infrastructure Limited, Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone Limited (BSE:532921), Flemingo Duty Free Shop Pvt. Ltd., Siemens Postal Parcel & Airport Logistics Pvt. Ltd., Egis India Consulting Engineers Pvt. Ltd., Bhadra International India Pvt. Ltd. and Flughafen Zuerich AG (SWX:FHZN) may acquire a stake in four airports. The Government has decided to privatise four Airports Authority of India owned airports in Chennai, Kolkata, Jaipur and Ahmedabad. GMR and Essel Group have shown interest to participate in bids for all the four government-run airports, industry sources have said. Airport Authority of India has initiated the pre-bid process to short list bidders for the development of airports at Ahmedabad, Chennai, Jaipur and Kolkatta and companies will have to submit details for evaluation by March 24. Adani Group and Essel group did not respond to email query seeking comments. A senior AAI executive said the bid conditions have been finalized by the ministry. "Ideally the bidding consortium should have experience as an airport operator, but the current RFQ allows local infrastructure firms to find an airport partner after winning the bid. This is not good and we have to protect our interests at the bid stage."
