Following a move to find investors for the privatization of international airports in Myanmar, the floor will be opened up to companies who wish to be involved in domestic airport development, according to the Department of Civil Aviation.
The department has invited an expression of interest by January 2015 from entrepreneurs to privatize 30 domestic airports throughout the country. Forty-five local and foreign companies submitted proposals of interest over respective airports to the department. Those companies vying for the contracts will be judged on the quality of their proposed build, operate and transfer or BOT systems. Most of the investors submitted proposals on Bagan-Nyaung U Airport as the most attractive airport project.
