Fraport accelerates foreign investment pace

Just as BAA seeks to offload some foreign airport assets and

Aeroports de Paris focuses on developing its Paris airports, Fraport is continuing

sharholding in Xi'an Airport for EUR50 million. Under the deal, Fraport will

in 2006 and forecasts 11 million in 2007.
