Chinese withdraw from Belgrade concession

NEWS FLASH


The Chinese-led consortium comprised of Hainan Air Travel Service, HNA Airport Group and China National Aero-Technology International Engineering Corporation have failed to make a binding bid for the 25-year concession of Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport. The Cyprus-based  Severika Limited joined the consortium just last week. However, local media report that only four binding bids have been made for the airport, which includes a consortium comprised of Incheon International Airport Corporation, Turkey's Ic Ictas Altypi and Russia's VTB Capital, a consortium comprised of Zurich Airport, Meridiam and Eiffage, a consortium made up of India's GMR Infrastructure and Greece's GEK Terma and a stand-alone bid by Vinci. The deadline or the submission of binding bids passed last Friday and the Public Body has begun evaluating the offers. A preliminary decision  is expected on December 25.

  1. Where are the conspiracy theorists to tell us that the tender is being fixed for the Chinese?

    2. Remember first it was that the Arabs were getting the airport along with cheap agricultural land :)

    3. First they missed payments on their fleet, than route consolidation in many markets, now this. Seems that all is not well at HNA.

    1. The Russians or the Turks will take it. All others are out of the equation.

      Russians will do nothing to improve the airport and Turks will do some small cosmetic changes, perhaps add that new extension planned earlier.

      We add all extensions being planned or already implemented, *(49000sqm when all work done )allow airport traffic of around 11-13 million pax. Figure airport won't reach for another 20 years at present rate of growth.

      In all honesty I don't see why airport needs to go under concession ??? Other then to make Vucic & Co rich men before they're thrown out of the office.

      If airport is making all the profits, they say they do, invest in to infrastructure and expansion, no need for silly concession.

    2. You realize that "Russian and Turks" are part of the Incheon consortium. Turks are only there for the infrastructure project (Incheon has applied to all tenders together with them), while Russians are there for the financing part - to give Incheon the necessary loans. So your theory is completely wrong because neither the Turks nor the Russians would be involved in running the airport.

    3. yeah, Russians will give money, Turks will build and Koreans will run

    4. Yes they will. You only have to do a short search to see what each of these companies does.

  3. I hope the Koreans will get it.

    3. Here we go:

      According to this source, VINCI will win because MMF likes them, however, Vinci doesn't meet core requirements: their own company ADP has 8% stake in ZAG.

      Also, source says, when it comes to Indians, they did concessions with Fraport in India, so it looks like Fraport "na mala vrata".

      (I know that source is funny, but we were talking about conspiracies, right?)

    4. ma preinvestirali su se. imali su neki nalet akvizicija od 50bln USD pokupovali razne firme po svetu i nekretnine po njujorku i floridi.

      onda nisu imali para da plate lizing aviona i sada moraju da rade konsolidaciju, a pretpostavljam da će i neke glave da lete.

  7. It was reported ages ago that during the first round the Chinese had the lowest financial offer.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I am shook! Also, is it safe to say the deadline was extended because of the Chinese and even after several extensions they failed to submit an official offer. If that is the case, then good that the Chinese will not be getting it.

  9. remember all the "chinese will get it" comments and articles?

    1. and more importantly "they will also take JU"

    2. I don't remember any article that the Chinese will get it. At least not here.

      Delete
    3. There was no article but many people believed that the Chinese would get the deal.
      Where have you been?

      Delete
    4. he said comments not article.... shame on all of those who thought they were smart or funny to say that Chinese will take it..

      Delete
    5. Yeah, really shameful thing to do. To speculate that the Chinese would get it considering all their investment in Serbia over the last year.
      In the end we were wrong, nothing else. No shame in that.

      Delete
  10. Well, how about this... they withdrew and the concession fails. Then there is no more concession and shady deals out of the public eyes can be made with the chinese.

    1. Well how about this: Zurich gets the concession. One year later UAE buys Zurich Airport as secretly agreed with Vucic, and now UAE has two airports in Europe ZRH, BEG and Air Serbia. Revenge to LH.

    2. i am missing james bond role in that scenario

    3. There are enough conspiracy theories and plot twists on this page to fill the next Bond movie. Just add Kim Jong-un as a stealth bidder in his goal to make what looks like a new BEG terminal on the outside but is really a missile silo on the inside. 007 fights him to save the free world. Appropriate movie title: From Belgrade With Love.

  11. Maybe the politicians included in the deal like Mali, were asking for too much under the table? Look at the ones that are left candidates from shady countries like Russia, India, Cyprus, Greece..

    4. They will probably fall out of love soon as soon as SNS stops funding them.

    5. that won't happen before the elections in belgrade.

    6. Kurir should not be read by anyone at any time.

    7. Under any circumstances.

  12. @ Anonymous 1:39 PM, wait till the end and see who is going to get the concession, i truly hope its a candidate from one of the countries that you listed. idiot.

    1. There is no bid from Cyprus and the "shady" countries you are talking about - Turkey and Russia are bidding with the Koreans. I assume you also think that shady people are running Zagreb, Skopje and Pristina since it's all Turks. So yeah, you are an idiot.

  13. Kinezi nemaju para jer su potpisali koncesiju sa Mariborskim aerodromom, gde će platiti 600 mil evra za koncesiju od 15 godina.

  14. So IMO 2nd best is now out, hopefully Koreans get it, everything else would be disappointment.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Take it easy people, the good thing is that there was a HUGE interest from so many companies. I personally would've preferred Fraport as they have improved a lot. LJU will soon benefit from them. Also compare eastern Bulgaria's airports then and now. Greek ones to follow. I think Vinci are good too, take a look at KUT airport in Georgia..
    Russians will be good, but probably too Mafioso.

  16. Would be nice if the Koreans get it but too many idiots from Serbia have a prejudice towards Korean investment because of Yura

    1. And what kind of prejudice do you have?
      Have you ever been in Korea?
      Have you been seen their way of working with foreigners?

    2. I know they don't tolerate slacking, which can only be good for the company.

      Everything else could, should and hopefully will be by the law in Serbia.
