Vinci to Operate Portuguese Airport Company ANA

The Portuguese government has decided to award a 50-year concessionary contract for the national airport management company ANA-Aeroportos de Portugal to French concessionaire Vinci.
The news came one week after the privatisation process for national airline TAP was cancelled.
French concessionaire Vinci already owns a share of Lusoponte, which manages the Vasco da Gama and 25 de Abril bridges in Lisbon until 2030.
Having made the highest bid for the purchase of ANA, Vinci has managed to consolidate its presence in more than 100 countries, through road, rail and car park management companies.
Besides the newly-acquired airport company in Portugal, which comprises the airports of Lisbon, Faro, Porto and Beja on mainland Portugal and a further four on the islands of São Miguel, Faial, Santa Maria and Flores in the Azores, Vinci also manages nine airports in France and three in south- east Asia.
