Приватизация (Privatisation) – the new Perestroika or Glasnost for Russia’s airports?


The Russian Government has, according to reports, confirmed plans to privatise 14 airports including Nizhny Novgorod, Samara, Ekaterinburg Koltsovo and Novosibirsk Tolmachevo, as part of a wider privatisation programme. If accurate, this development is a natural extension of recent privatisation activity, the most notable of which has been the St Petersburg Pulkovo Airport PPP project, which reached financial closure in Jun-2010.
