September 29 (SeeNews) - Albania's prime minister Edi Rama said that the tender for awarding a concession contract for the construction, operation and maintenance of an international airport in the city of Vlora will be reopened in the first week of October, local media reported.
The construction process was postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, local news provider Exit.al quoted Rama as saying last week.
Albania's infrastructure ministry said in late March the tender was suspended without giving a reason for the decision. The ministry previously postponed the bidding deadline to March 30 from March 12.
The proposed term of the concession contract will be 35 years under a build-operate-transfer (BOT) model, infrastructure minister Belinda Balluku said in December.
In 2019, the Albanian government failed to conclude negotiations with a Turkish consortium for the construction of Vlora airport, an investment estimated at 100 million euro ($116.9 million).
Currently, Tirana International Airport Mother Teresa is Albania's only operational airport.
