Airport shares struggle again - Mexico's OMA, GAP and ASUR sold-off. Fraport may sell Frankfurt-Hahn
Airport shares around the world struggled again on 13-Jan-09, with Mexico's leading airport operators OMA (-6.2%), ASUR (-1.8%) and GAP (-1.6%) among those sold off. Fraport (-3.6%) was sold off amid reports the company may sell its 65% stake in Frankfurt-Hahn airport to the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate after failing to impose a fee increase. It is another win for Ryanair, the airport's biggest customer.
Hochtief meanwhile made up for the previous day's losses, rising 6.2% as it gained more facility management contracts in Germany. In the aviation sector, Hochtief, alongside Turkey's TAV, has been shortlisted to build Abu Dhabi Airport's big new terminal.
