Groupe ADP manages and modernizes Zagreb International Airport
In 2013, Groupe ADP and its partners, within the framework of a private-public partnership, took on the management of Franjo Tudman Airport, in Zagreb, for a period of 30 years.
The consortium ZAIC-A Ltd – the sole shareholder of the managing company MZLZ joining forces with Groupe ADP (20.8% of stakes), TAV Airports (15%), Bouygues Bâtiments International, IFC-World Bank, the investment fund Marguerite and the Croatian construction company Viadukt –, is responsible for the operation of the airport throughout a 30-year concession contract.
Within MZLZ, Groupe ADP and its partners are in charge of the financing, the construction and the operation of a 65,000 sq.m new terminal, which has replaced the existing one on 28th March 2017. The transfer of activity was successfully achieved in one night thanks to the group's teams' methodical supervision. Groupe ADP provides technical assistance and runs day-to-day operations and long-term development of the airport: its new routes, its shops, its car parks etc.
As a showcase for Croatia, Zagreb airport now boasts an annual capacity of 5 million passengers, offers 30 check-in counters, 8 air bridges, and over 2,000 sq.m of shops.
The airport's activities have been successfully restructured: fifteen new routes have been opened since takeover of the concession.
