Ahmetaj: Deal on liberalizing international flights reached with Rinas airport concessionary company

4. February 2016

On Wednesday, Minister of Economy Arben Ahmetaj said that the Albanian government reached an agreement with the concessionary company running the Mother Theresa International Airport for the liberalization of international flights.

According to Ahmetaj, the concessionary company would continue its activities, but Albania would now have the right to license other international entry airports, which would in turn, reduce the fees and prices.

As per this agreement the concessionary company will preserve its exclusivity over an area with a 100km radius. He said that the Ministry of Transports and the Ministry of Economic Development had signed their part of agreement, but newspapers report that the Ministry of Transports said that they were not aware of the existence of such agreement.
