Munich Airport, the French global investment firm Meridiam and the construction company STRABAG, have won the concession contract to run Sofia Airport for the next 35 years. The decision was announced by the Bulgarian Minister of Transport, Information Technology and Communications.

The tender process attracted the interest of some of the world’s best airport operators and was conducted by the Bulgarian Government with the support of the IFC (World Bank) and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) in line with international and industry standards. As is normal in this type of tender process, the Commission for Protection of Competition will now proceed with its review.
