Italy Airport overview – Rome and Venice


Aeroporti di Roma, Gemina, its owner, and SAVE, the operator of Venice Airport, have all released financial reports for periods ending 30-Sep-2009.

But now Changi Airports International, which has had a consulting contract with AdR, is being linked with a potential investment in Fiumicino Airport. As for SAVE, which unusually operates both the primary and secondary airports in the Venice region, its airport division appears to be functioning almost as well as its infrastructure and retail divisions. And quietly it is positioning itself for selective equity acquisition at appropriate airports in Europe and beyond. [2775 words]
