Turkey's airport management holding got on Friday pre-qualification certificates for construction of two airports in Macedonia.
Turkish "Tepe Akfen (TAV) Airports Holding" received pre-qualifications for tenders to construct two airports in Macedonia, a company statement said.
TAV holding is eager to construct "Alexander The Great" airport in Skopje and "St. Apostle Paul" airport in Ohrid with build-operate-transfer (BOT) model.
The tender also foresees operation of the airports for 20 years, and a construction of a new cargo airport in Stip.
TAV --the leading airports operator in Turkey-- was established in 1997, as a joint venture between Tepe and Akfen Groups following their successful bid for the Istanbul Ataturk Airport International Terminal Contract. Istanbul Ataturk Airport one of the first sample of the Airport Operating projects in the world with BOT model.
TAV took very important steps for 10 years, both in airport construction projects, and in the brand new sector of airport operations, towards becoming one of the international brands in Turkey. Due to fast growth and new investment opportunities, TAV re-structured in 2006 and grouped its operation and construction services under "TAV Airports Holding" and "TAV Construction."
TAV has undertaken the construction and operation of three major airports in Turkey (Istanbul Ataturk, Ankara Esenboga and Izmir Adnan Menderes Airports) and the Tbilisi and Batumi Airports in Georgia, Enfida and Monastere Airports in Tunisia.
TAV Airports Holding has 12 companies, and it is operating in ground handling services, operation services, duty free shops, food and beverage services, IT and security services, which are complementary to airport operations.
