Málaga airport could be candidate for privatisation

Under new Government plans to sell off the family jewels to finance their inept handling of the economy, there is a possibility that Málaga airport, the gateway to Andalucia, could be a future target for privatisation after Madrid-Barajas and Barcelona-El Prat.

The president of the Junta de Andalucía, José Antonio Griñán, has reportedly stated that he ‘wouldn’t mind’ if Málaga airport was privatised and there are indications that other airports in the region could also be candidates in any sell-off.

Experts are divided as to the advantages and disadvantages of private ownership of the airports but all seem to agree it is a likely possibility in view of the government’s need to trim budgets.

In theory at least, privatisation leads to a more efficient running of an enterprise, although often to the detriment of the consumer through increased prices.

It may not happen, of course, it will all depend upon whether the Government can come up with any sort of sustainable economic policy capable of reviving the economy and getting people back into employment.
