BELGRADE (Serbia), June 21 (SeeNews) - Four consortia and one company are expected to place binding bids in a tender for a 25-year concession contract for operating Belgrade Nikola Tesla international airport, Serbian media reported.

The Serbian government owns 83.1% of Aerodrom Nikola Tesla, the operator of Belgrade airport. The company saw its net profit drop slightly to 3.2 billion dinars ($29.3 milion/26 million euro) in 2016, from 3.3 billion dinars a year earlier.
