Five potential bidders will be invited to participate in the Request for Proposal stage for the privatisation of the Norman Manley International Airport.

They have been identified and shortlisted by the Enterprise Team, which has been established to supervise the privatization process.

Making his contribution to the 2015/16 Sectoral Debate in the House of Representatives on April 21, Minister of Transport, Works and Housing, Dr. the Hon. Omar Davies, said the five firms are from Europe, Asia and South America.

“We take particular pleasure in the fact that two shortlisted consortiums include Jamaican partners. I have also been informed that a third is actively seeking collaboration with Jamaican firms involved in the aviation industry,” the Minister noted.

Dr. Davies informed the House that bidding documents will be issued at the beginning of June, and it is anticipated that the transaction will be completed by early next year.
