NR Investments Ltd, (“NR Investments”) the Guernsey, Channel Islands investment vehicle, completed its purchase of Komaksavia Airport Invest Ltd, the Cyprus-incorporated owner of a 95% shareholding in Moldovan company, Avia Invest S.R.L., the concession company of Moldova’s Chisinau International airport yesterday, 28th August.  This marks a significant next step in the airport's development under a public-private concession agreement.

“We pledge to be completely transparent in running Chisinau International Airport and help deliver its full potential, bringing in further investment to grow traffic and enhance the experience for both airlines and their passengers,” Nat Rothschild commented.

"Free from any political agenda, we are a strong financial partner, contributing a wealth of experience in the region to the airport's benefit," he added.

The culmination of this transaction follows an extensive engagement with key stakeholders, including Moldova's Minister of Economy & Infrastructure Vadim Brinzan and incoming Prime Minister Mrs Maia Sandu.

Central to the investment decision was NRI’s view of Moldova as an attractive and predictable investment destination.  It is NR Investment’s desire to work closely with the Government to grow the airport and ensure its quality in line with the best European gateway benchmarks.
