Aena eyes up Luton Airport

City A.M. Reporter
SPANISH airport operator Aena is planning to take over Luton Airport from infrastructure group Abertis, according to reports over the weekend.

Aena, which currently holds a 10 per cent stake in the airport, has exercised its right to bid for Abertis’ 90 per cent holding, said the Sunday Times, citing a story from infrastructure newswire Infranews.

A spokesman for Aena declined to comment on the report while Abertis could not be reached for immediate comment.

Luton Borough Council owns the airport but it is privately operated.
