Frankfurt Hahn airport’s administrator has re-issued an invitation for potential investors in the German facility.
Administrator Jan Markus Plathner says the invitation follows “refused approvals” and “new expressions of interest”, after previous options failed to materialize.
A prospective bidder for Hahn, Swift Conjoy, had been discussing acquisition but did not complete the sale.
Plathner had explored alternatives and was negotiating a second provisional contract – reportedly from Russian-linked company NR Holding. But this appears not to have been finalised.
The new deadline for submitting bids has been set for 9 March with closure expected to take place by 26 March.
“We would like to give potential interested parties the chance to participate in the investor process,” says Plathner.
“However, the focus remains on reaching a solution in a timely manner.”
He adds that the timeframe and conditions of the sale are subject to change.
Operations at Frankfurt Hahn are continuing under the insolvency process. The summer schedule will feature additional European routes.
