Warsaw (Puls Biznesu) – Army assets agency AMW does not need that many airports it has and would like to sell some of them or to divide costs of running them. ‘Airports are a big burden for AMW.

They generate serious costs. If only a buyer with a good offer shows, we will sell them’, Jerzy Rasilewicz, AMW CEO said. The agency does not only want to get rid of the problem but also to earn money. ‘Selling airports, I raise funds for army modernisation. Their price is evaluated by army specialist and they cannot be sold cheaper’, Jerzy Rasilewicz added.

For example, the airport in Nowe Miasto nad Pilica, central Poland, costs PLN 9 m (EUR 2.2 m). A tender is going to be held within several weeks. ‘Transactions to sell airports in Slups and Nowe Miasto are in the final stages. We are also holding negotiations to sell airports in Zegrze Pomorskie and Wdzydze’, AMW CEO said. Americans are interested in the airport in Biala Poldaska, eastern Poland, and in Rudnik, close to Czestochowa, a civil airport will be launched for pilgrims visiting Czestochowa.
