In addition, our team has extensive experience in advising (regional and international) commercial airports. We advise private airport operators, the competent regulatory authorities as well as the airport owners and potential acquirers. A focus of our work regards providing legal advice on the preparation and modification of the complex infrastructure of airports. This pertains to issues of planning and environmental law (e.g. implications of aircraft noise) as well as financing by fees, subsidies and non-aviation revenue.

In this context, our state aid and subsidies expertise is also regularly sought, such as in connection with the operation of airports, investment in infrastructure or designing tables of charges.

Moreover, we are familiar with the legal particularities and practical challenges associated with the sale of airports, including the sale to international investors.
