MADRID Spanish construction and services group
Ferrovial (FER.MC) has sold a 50 percent stake in Bristol
airport to Australian business partner Macquarie MBL.AX, the
firm said on Thursday, confirming an earlier Reuters report.
Ferrovial, which bought British airport operator BAA this
year, will receive around 158 million euros ($209 million) for
the stake, it said in a statement.
Ferrovial had already agreed to sell its stakes in Sydney
and Bristol airports to Macquarie.
Ferrovial also said it had extended the period in which it
can sell its 21 percent stake in Sydney airport to Macquarie.
