Gatwick Airport Sold to French Firm

Gatwick Airport is in the news for a reason other than drones that created lots of negative headlines over Christmas.

Vinci SA agreed to acquire a majority stake in Gatwick Airport for 2.9 billion pounds ($3.7 billion) as the French construction company expands its portfolio of aviation infrastructure with a major London hub.

The purchase of the 50.01 percent stake from a group of investors including sovereign wealth funds from Abu Dhabi and Australia will be completed in the first half of 2019, the Rueil-Malmaison, France-based company said Thursday in a statement. Existing shareholder Global Infrastructure Partners will manage the other 49.99 percent.
