SPAIN. The consultancy group Alvarez & Marsal Spain has been appointed as the preferred bidder for the contract to provide consultancy services for the tax-free tender at Spanish airports.
As reported, airport company AENA plans to award duty-free contracts at 26 airports across its Spanish network in Q4 2022, with new concessions starting November 1, 2023.

The consultancy contract, which according to AENA is valued at 4.6 million euros, will last up to 36 months and will include the preparation, drafting and monitoring of tender documents and the process tender.

Little and ALG Global Infrastructure Advisors, also submitted bids. The choice of Alvarez & Marsal must be approved by AENA, which has not given a timetable for this stage of the process.
