Augulis: Riga Airport could built new terminal itself

Alla Petrova, BC, Riga, 15.11.2010.Print version
The new terminal at Riga International Airport could be built by the airport itself, said Transport Minister Uldis Augulis in an interview with the business portal

"At present it is starting to look to me like the airport could build the terminal by itself and be the leading force in the project. We should speak to the airport about this - about the possibility for this. Maybe if the airport received financial support, it would be more efficient to build it independently, rather than leaving the project to someone else who may later manage the new terminal without really knowing what is happening in the old one," explained the minister, LETA informs.


The minister believes that the Turkish company TAV Airports, which was selected by the airline airBaltic, could be left out of the project, as "no agreements with them have been signed yet; everything is currently at the level of negotiation, and it is possible that the situation could change".
