The Rothschild family now owns 95% Avia Invest shares through Investments Limited company, en.publika reported referring to the airport’s press service.
“Foreign investors announced, in a press release, that they will release data on Chisinau airport's development plans in September,” the source noted.
Earlier, President Igor Dodon and Prime Minister Maia Sandu spoke in favor of returning the capital's airport to the state. The only international air harbor in Moldova in 2013 was granted a concession for a period of 49 years, the tenant undertook to invest about € 245 million in the development of the complex, increase the airport’s transit passenger traffic by 1.5 million people a year, and pay royalties to the state in the amount of 1 % of income.
However, since then, Avia Invest has changed owners several times.
