Chinese operator exits Maribor Airport

NEWS FLASH


The Chinese operator of Maribor Edvard Rusjan Airport, SHS Aviation, has ended its concession today after announcing in January it was cutting short its fifteen-year agreement, inked in 2017. The Slovenian government has announced that the state-owned DRI consulting and engineering company, which specialises in infrastructure projects, will take over the management of Edvard Rusjan Airport as a stop-gap solution. However, there are fears that ongoing bureaucratic issues could delay the takeover and result in the airport’s closure for at least a week. The European Union invested six million euros into Maribor Airport's terminal building under the condition it remains operational until at least November 2021. If the airport were to close for a prolonged period, Slovenia would be forced to pay back the EU funds. Maribor Airport handled just 2.345 passengers last year. It registered a net loss of 2.2 million euros over the same period.

  5. Once closed, according to NOTAM from Juliy 17th, MBX will never reopen again. Where Slovenian bureaucrats take actions there is no hope anymore. Believe me, it's over. RIP MBX
