France: Gov to retain its 10% stake in Toulouse airport

France will retain its 10% stake in Toulouse-Blagnac airport in the south of France, French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said on Tuesday, January 7. 

“I can confirm that the State, at the request of local authorities that I have met, will keep a 10% stake in Toulouse airport,” Le Maire told members of parliament. 

France’s antitrust authority in December cleared the acquisition of a 49.99% stake in Toulouse-Blagnac airport by French construction group Eiffage.
