Chinese investor to take over Maribor Airport


Savings bank Delavska hranilnica, the operator of Maribor Edvard Rusjan Airport, has said it is in the process of selling its outright stake to Chinese entrepreneur David Pu for some five to seven million euros. Mr Pu notes that he is still screening the airport and making final arrangements for the takeover. "We would be delighted to connect Maribor with some cities in China and would develop both passenger and cargo traffic", he notes. The Slovenian Minister for Economic Development and Technology, Zdravko Počivalšek, recently said that discussions have already been held concerning direct cargo flights between Beijing and Maribor. It is believed Mr Pu is acting on behalf of Chinese investor Chen Yinshen. Maribor Airport has no scheduled year-long flights. It handled 24.896 passengers in 2015.
