Georgian authorities have received "interesting offers" for the sale of airport Kutaisi
The Government of Georgia has received several "interesting offers" for the management of the airport of the city of Kutaisi. This statement was made by Minister of Economy and Sustainable Development Vera Kobalia. The right to operate air harbor can be transferred for a nominal fee of one GEL.
"The airport in Kutaisi is a very important asset, and all offers will be considered in details. Perhaps, the airport will be transferred for a nominal price, but a mandatory prerequisite would be a considerable investment for its rehabilitation and development" - underlined the Minister. The size of the required investment is estimated at 40 million dollars, according to the "Georgia-News".
Note that this air harbor operates around the clock and all year round. The LLJ "Kutaisi Airport" is a government property, and its runways are located 20 kilometers from Kutaisi. Area of buildings is 2300 sq.m., and the size of the territory is 35.5 hectares.
