VINCI signs Belgrade Airport concession


France's VINCI Airports has today signed a 25-year concession agreement for the financing, development through construction and reconstruction, maintenance and management of infrastructure of Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport. The deal, worth over 1.5 billion euros, was sealed by the Serbian Prime Minister, Ana Brnabić, and VINCI Airports Chairman, Nicolas Notebaert. This was followed an hour later by a tour of the airport, which was attended by VINCI's management, the Serbian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Construction, Transport and Infrastructure, Zorana Mihajlović, the French Ambassador to Serbia, Frederic Mondoloni, the Mayor of Belgrade, Siniša Mali, as well as the General Manager of Nikola Tesla Airport, Saša Vlaisavljević.



Speaking at the signing ceremony, VINCI Airports Chairman, Nicolas Notebaert, said, "I would like to thank the Serbian government for this transparent concession process, which was apparent throughout all of its stages. We would also like to thank for the confidence that has been entrusted in us. We will prove that this was the right choice. We have come here as long-term partners. We will give our utmost to develop this airport, which is in the interest of all parties involved. Of course, we would not be here today if we did not believe in the major potential this airport holds. Moreover, we believe in the high potential of Belgrade as a leisure and business destination and we want to help the airport realise this potential. We also want to link Belgrade with cities and countries such as Lisbon, Santo Domingo and Chile so it becomes a leading regional airport in this part of the world. Since we do not operate here, it will become our flagship airport. As a concessionaire, we try to improve the team leading the airport. We will work to help Air Serbia introduce new long haul routes and also assist other airlines in order to attract many passengers to visit this beautiful country”. He added, “We have an energetic investment plan. First and foremost, our aim is to make every visitor remember Serbia in the best possible way, since the airport is the first and last place they will see in a country. We are excited that Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport will become a true hub in this part of Europe”.

The Chairman continued, “Our bid was competitive both in financials but also in the intent, because, firstly, we believe in this project. Our team studied the capacity, the potential to create growth because the main driver of the concession is the traffic, the number of people in and out of Serbia. We strongly believe in Serbia. The number of visitors that will arrive in the coming 25 years, the government policies, as well as the good mix of business, tourism and investment will create traffic. It is a win-win situation where the more routes we open, the more people it brings and the more activity is generated. We have the belief that with our expertise and our network, we can offer a good mix between the initial physical investment, which is required by the concession and we think is necessary, but also the quality of service which we will start work on straight away”.

The French Ambassador to Serbia, Frederic Mondoloni, said, “Today is a real special day for France and Serbia. It is a real pleasure and honour for me to take part in the signing ceremony of the agreement between the Serbian government, Nikola Tesla Airport and the French company VINCI. This year started in the best way for France and Serbia. In January we were delighted to hear that the Serbian government decided to award the Belgrade Airport concession to VINCI. This contract is indeed a major step for France and Serbia. I wanted to thank all the Serbian authorities in the name of the French government and the French President of the Republic. The tender procedure went through a long and precise examination of all bidders’ offers. VINCI Airports was finally selected after the process. This decision to choose a large French company, which is one of the biggest airport operators in the world, will allow for the continued improvement and development of Belgrade Airport. This is a good choice for France and VINCI, but I am deeply convinced this is a very good choice for Serbia too. I want this to be a win-win partnership based on our long-lasting friendship. I believe this investment by a major French company will attract many other French investors to Serbia”.

The Serbian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Construction, Transport and Infrastructure, Zorana Mihajlović, noted, “Today is a big day for Serbia, Belgrade and Nikola Tesla Airport. Today we signed the concession on which we have been working on for several years. The terms of the agreement are more or less known. They include an upfront payment, further airport investment, as well as an annual fee. Our vision is for Serbia to be a transport hub and an unavoidable country not just in Southeast Europe but also in Europe”.


Commenting on the takeover this morning, Belgrade Airport General Manager noted this morning, "This year, from the thirty or so airlines operating to Belgrade, but especially from Air Serbia, we anticipate many nice surprises. In honour of VINCI and France, a classical music concert will be held at the airport this afternoon. Representatives from the French company will tour the airport twice today. It will be a long day for all of us. In the future, you can expect only positive news from the airport". Mr Vlaisavljević added, "We are handing over the airport to our partner VINCI in an excellent state".

VINCI will provide an up-front payment of 501 million euros, a further annual tax payment of between five and sixteen million euros and has obligated itself to invest 732 million euros into the airport. It will have a controlling stake of 83%, while the remainder will continue to be owned by minority shareholders and several banks. "As concessionaire, VINCI Airports will aim at improving airport operating conditions to enable Air Serbia to offer new long haul routes as part of its hub strategy. Furthermore, VINCI will build on its partnerships with over 200 airlines to increase the airport’s traffic and connectivity, in line with Serbia’s strong economic growth potential", the French company said earlier. It also noted that it would capitalise on the substantial airport management and development expertise it has acquired in France, Portugal, Japan and other countries to improve Belgrade's overall airport customer experience, notably by reorganising and optimising passenger flows and expanding retail areas. Mr Notebaert, said previously, “This success marks a new stage in VINCI Airports’ expansion outside France. Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport will serve as the company's “hub” in Southeast Europe, a geographical area in which VINCI Airports has not operated until now”.


The French company has said it plans to take control of the airport by September 2018, following the financial close of the concession deal. The Serbian government has noted that VINCI has been obligated to keep fees and charges for airlines unchanged during the first three years of its 25-year concession, keep the existing workforce, overhaul the airport's runway and terminal buildings, build a new passenger terminal, as well as a new runway. VINCI has set a target for Belgrade to handle at least seven million passengers per year by 2024 and ten million by 2030.

      If BEG was in the US, it would have 3-5 runways with the actual traffic figures.

      Both VIE and BUD had their second runways built by the time they reached 2 million pax a year.

      Delete
    6. Second runaway is not important just because of number of passengers. During winter months when weather conditions are not good second runaway is very important because you can always clean snow on one and use second for traffic. When you have only one runaway then you must stop all operations when you clean that runaway of snow.

  8. Anyone here who speaks French well may help us comprehend this sentence exactly as it is written:

    1. Agree. And I doubt scenarios like the DCA rejecting Turkish Airlines to fly A330 to BEG will be happening because the airport's main aim will be to increase profit and the larger the planes the more money they get.

    3. I'm well aware the airport does not approve flights but you probably don't understand English well so you didn't understand my comment. The airport can certainly excerpt influence on the Directorate just like Air Serbia excreted its influence on the directorate for these flights not to get a permit. Remember that the directorate did first approve this equipment upgrade and then when Air Serbia realized what happened, contacted the directorate the permit was suddenly revoked.

    4. Since BEG is no longer state controlled as of today, maybe they could start focusing on Nis and Kraljevo.

    2. Why wouldn't it be? They are looking to make money and IR brings a lot of paying customers and is paying airport charges.

    3. Because out of all the airlines that fly to BEG they probably currently bring the least money so I'm sure Iran Air which started flying to Belgrade 2 weeks ago with 2 weekly flights is not their priority.

      Delete
    4. I disagree, IR has massive potential and they are smart enough to recognize it. Don't forget there are six weekly flights on three airlines.

    11. P.S I'm not lecturing anyone I'm discussing something with you and expressing my opinion. Normal in an open forum. No need to feel offended just because we disagree.

    12. Their priority is to boost their revenue by bringing more passengers and Iranian airlines can do exactly that. I think you have an issue with them not being from western Europe.

      Delete
    13. Well you assume completely wrong. I don't mind if there are more and more flights from the east, Iran included. I was merely expressing that an airline flying 2 flights per week will certainly not be their priority. Their number 1 priority will be Air Serbia and their number 2 priority will be Wizz Air.

      Delete
    14. Let me remind you that you were the one to speak of IR being their top priority. I merely said that I hoped they would encourage them to expand here. Vinci did say they were going to work on attracting more foreign airlines.

      Qatar and Turkish Airlines started with three weekly flights and look at them today.

    1. No one wants INI, at least not for now. The government needs to invest in INI in order to sell it good, just like they did with BEG. INI currently lacks basic infrastructure

    2. But that was the point! To develop the airport. Look at Macedonia - they gave both SKP and OHD to TAV and look at the results.
      Same with Bulgaria - they gave BOJ and VAR in a package to Fraport and look what happened - almost 5 million pax combined.

      INI would have made so much benefit of this concession. In my opinion it should have been included.

  34. Kontrakt za koncesiju je podpisan samo par sati ranije. Istina da je danas najznacajniji dan za Aerodrom Nikola Tesla. Bar za iducih 10 godina. Kada bi Vlada Srbije od prve transe danasnje uplate izdvojila 3%, otvaranje aerodroma Morava Kraljevo bi bilo reseno. Tih 14,5 miliona evra bi resio problem zakljucanog i nedovrsenog aerodroma centralne Srbije. Zbog ovog malog teksta, verujem da sam kod znacajnog broja ucesnika ovog bloga izazvao revolt. Ipak decentralizacija Srbije jeste krucijalna. Ne samo deklarativno, vec stvarno. Kad sledeci put budem sleteo na Beogradski aerodrom, verujem da ce Morava biti sa putnickim i kargo saobracajem. Nadam se. To mi je ostalo. Vera. A vama?

    2. I am afraid you are right anon 2:01 but lets wait and see. If they really plan 15 mil passengers they will need a new terminal building at least.

  37. Hehehehe. Svaka čast. LJU kupili Nijemci, BEG i ZAG upravljaju Fracuzi, JU kupili Arapi. A glupi narod to još slavi. Nema što. Stvarno smo sad "svoj na svome". Vrijedilo je razjebat Jugu.
    Kao što kažu pametni ljudi: vi bagro, niste sposobni opiturat ono što je Tito sagradio. Samo možete strancima prodavat

    1. I neka, kad su Francuzi dobri Japancima da upravljaju njihovim aerodromom u Osaki-biće dobri i Beogradu. Svako za sebe, pa dokle se stigne-ok.

    2. JU nisu kupili Arapi, Etihad je manjinski partner Vlade Srbije. I uprkos slabijim turističkim potencijalima Srbije u odnosu na susedne zemlje i lošije ekonomsko stanje-Air Serbia je uspela da bude najbolja avio-kompanija na prostoru ex yu. Beg je povezan celogodišnjim letovima sa Njujorkom i Pekingom-to gradovi u okruženju tek treba da postignu, ako uopšte i postignu tako nešto.

    3. ZAG je poveyan sa YYZ-to gradovi u okruženju tek treba da postignu.

    4. Ali to je samo sezonski let. Kad bude neka celogodišnja linija-onda može da se poredi.

    5. Kao na primjer Lisabon?

    6. Lisabon niti je transkontinentalna niti pripada dugolinijskom saobracaju za razliku od PEK i JFK.

      Totalno nepotrebno poredjenje

  38. Gotta love this guy's sense of humour! BEG to SDQ and SCL, lol! Air Serbia would first have to get aircraft capable of flying BEG-SCL nonstop as A332 can't make it. Just imagine the monstrous cost of that 15 hour ULH, wow.

    А сад озбиљно: кад чују да нема ништа од друге писте у следећих 25 година, нико више неће моћи да спречи Сурчинце да се још више рашире по забрањеној зони. Ако Београд икад буде имао две праве писте то ће бити неки нови аеродром које ће направити будуће генерације на потпуно новој локацији.

  39. Ograde zemljište i to je to-kako onda da se Surčinci šire? I čemu više ta opterećenost drugom pistom-napraviće pistu koja će biti izmedju postojeće piste i rulne staze. Tako će Beg imati dve piste koje će moći naizmenično da se koriste i biti alternativa jedna drugoj.

    1. Neće moći obe istovremeno da se koriste i neće moći obe da imaju ILS. Znači jedna će biti za sletanje, jedna za poletanje. Nije baš isto kao dve prave piste.

    2. Nisam ni rekao da će moći istovremeno da se koriste, nego naizmenično-tj. obe će biti potpuno opremljene i za poletanje i za sletanje, pa će moći da se koristi malo jedna, pa malo druga, ili jedna za sletanje, a druga za poletanje. Beg će svakako biti obezbedjen za slučaj da se nešto desi na jednoj pisti.

    3. Ograde zemljiste koje im pripada, surcinci ne moraju da se sire ako nemaju kuda.

      Vest je stara vec vise godina, sve te kuce blizu aerodroma se ruse.

  40. Will they get rid of the taxi mafia at BEG?

    1. That is doable in a week time. When there is a will, there's a way.

    2. One of the taxi drivers told me that there is already some plan announced at least unofficially - special requirements for taxi vehicles, drivers, permits. In addition to that he mentioned that there will be some option to prepaid drive to/from airport...
