BAA Edinburgh Airport Sale Lures Gatwick, Manchester Owners

Edinburgh airport, which BAA Ltd. said this week will be sold following pressure from regulators, is attracting interest from Global Infrastructure Partners Ltd. and Manchester Airports Group, its owner’s chief U.K. rivals.

GIP knows Edinburgh well and is interested in a purchase, according to a person familiar with its strategy who declined to be identified because nothing has been made public. Manchester Airports will look at an acquisition that would deliver investor value, spokesman John Greenway said in an e-mail.
