Airports Authority of India is likely to bid for privatisation of the Goa airport. This is the first time that AAI is competing against global players like Hochtief Aktiengesellschaft, French firm Vinci Construction, South Korea’s Incheon International Airport and Malaysia Airport Holding.
AAI will form a special purpose vehicle to bid for the project. It will also seek to ensure that service levels can be comparable with those airports run by private operators. Given the experience of AAI, it is a strong contender with lot of experience in running airports. AAI will likely have to complete with about 15 large domestic and international firms that have shown interest in building the new airport in Goa
