Aviation investment and transactions

To make an investment or deliver higher performance and returns from aviation infrastructure requires inherent knowledge of how airport and airline businesses interact and operate within an economic and operationally regulated marketplace. Our experienced consultants help identify alternative solutions to unlock greater value and outperform market expectations.

The $1.5 billion expansion of Madinah Airport in Saudi Arabia was the first full airport PPP in the Gulf Cooperation Council region. It was fully funded by Islamic compliant finance.
