Three major construction companies are interested in the new international airport of Kastelli, Heraklion.
According to information of euro2day.gr, three bids will be opened on November 11th, while China State Construction Engineering Corporation (CSCEC) seems not to be interested any more.
French VINCI along with Greek ELAKTOR, Spanish ACS along with Greek TERNA and French Bougyes along with J&P AVAX Group, are the three final bidding groups for the construction of the new airport.
