Flanders region sets its sights on Brussels Airport takeoverSaturday, 01 September 2018 12:28
The airport company itself is owned by the federal government, which hold 25% plus one special share; the Canadian pension fund OTPP (39%) and the Australian group Macquarie (36%).
The latter share is now up for sale, starting in the autumn.
Now the Flemish government’s investment fund (PMV) has expressed an interest in obtaining a share of the airport company, together with co-investors AG, Belfius and Ethias.
That deal would set the Flemish administration directly in competition with Wallonia, which directly supports Charleroi and to a lesser extent Liege airports.
According to De Tijd, considering the partners lined up, the Flemish government has a strong chance of winning the deal.
