New buyers for Toulouse-Blagnac airport


Two new buyers have joined the list of wannabes to buy the 49.9 percent shares in Toulouse-Blagnac airport. Companies from France and China are joining the four candidates who are already in line.

The final phase of the acquisition of Toulouse-Blagnac airport should begin soon. The first four finalists for the acquisition of Toulouse-Blagnac airport are the Eiffage concessions, the Edeis engineering group and two French groups: Vinci Airports combined with Caisse des Dépôts Infrastructure and Prédica.

We’ve learnt on Monday that EDF has now joined the list. They applied in 2015 but were rejected in preference for the Chinese Casil Europe, who eventually bought the shares.

The second group who has joined the list is a Chinese listed group.

In the meantime, the Minister of Economy Bruno le Maire will receive the local shareholders on March 6, who are the Chamber of Commerce (CCI), the Occitanie region, the departmental council of Haute-Garonne and Toulouse Métropole.
