Coventry Airport could be sold to Patriot Aviation Group

Coventry Airport is reportedly in talks with Sir Peter Rigby about taking over the airport (Birmingham Post, 17-Feb-2010). The entrepreneur, who owns the Patriot Aviation Group, has been “keeping tabs” on the airport since its Dec-2009 closure. Swiss firm Airport Development Partners reportedly announced earlier in the week it had withdrawn from negotiations with the city council.
