SOFIA May 10 Bulgaria plans to re-launch a
tender to run and operate Sofia airport, Finance Minister
Vladislav Goranov said on Wednesday.
Last month, Bulgaria's interim government cancelled the
tender saying the plans to grant concession rights for 35 years
at the country's main airport were not in the public
The tender was launched in May 2016 by the previous
government of Prime Minister Boiko Borisov.
"We have no reason to change the strategy for the management
of Sofia airport. The procedure to grant Sofia airport on
concession will be launched again," Goranov told reporters after
the first cabinet meeting of the new government, led by Borisov.
The Sofia airport, which was used by 5 million passengers
last year, is currently operated by the state.
