AIRPORT CONCESSIONS SEMINAR – Bucharest, August 12, 2020

On August 12, 2020, together with AROPA – Romanian Association of Private Aviation Operators, we organized the AIRPORT CONCESSION SEMINAR, having as speakers Mrs Andrea Pal – CEO FRAPORT BRASIL, with significant experience in airport concessions and Mihai Furtună, our managing partner, specialised in aviation law and airport infrastructure. The seminar aimed to present the economic and legal challenges that arise from airport concessions, and the necessary aspects for the preparation and successful completion of such projects, focusing on practical examples from international and Romanian practice.

The event was attended by over 50 representatives operating in the aviation and airport infrastructure industry, including representatives of the National Company Bucharest Airports (CNAB) and other Romanian regional airports (such as Iași, Brașov, Satu Mare, Sibiu), of the Ministry of Transport, Infrastructure and Communications, of County Councils and also representatives of Romanian and Moldavian private companies operating in the aviation and airport infrastructure industry.

Main topics were focused on: choosing the most appropriate model for the privatization of an airport (IPO/PPP/BOT/Concession), preparing and carrying out the tender procedure for concessions, the particularities and specific clauses of the concession contract and business cases presentation from an international experience point of view.

The AIRPORT CONCESSION SEMINAR was an indeed successful event, the more so as the Q&A session much exceeded the allotted time.
