"Chinese investors in Europe’s airports 2016": Europe is in favour again. A CAPA report
China is investing huge sums on its own airports – up to USD130 billion over the next 15 years - but Chinese inward investment to other countries for the same purpose elsewhere is not insignificant. While Africa, in particular, has been on the Chinese radar for years, Europe, where some of the first Chinese airport investments were, is once again in favour.
There is a wide range of investments in airport assets at all points on the scale, from global hubs to remote secondary level airports: a range of investment by organisations such as sovereign wealth funds – via giant retail companies and Big Data conglomerates – right down to smaller engineering companies and industrial concerns. And they are taking over large parts of the supply chain too, with catering suppliers like Gategroup and Servair either acquired or targeted, as well as ground handling companies such as Swissport.
A new 50-page CAPA report, "Chinese investors in Europe’s Airports 2016", addresses these issues and reviews the recent investment history.
