Business Development

About us:

Ferrovial is one of the world’s leading developers of transport infrastructure. Ferrovial Airports integrates all airport management activities and it´s one of the world´s leading private airport investors and operator. We have a deep understanding of the industry and a record of building strong and productive relationships with partners and stakeholders.

The Airports Division oversees all of Ferrovial Group’s activities relating to the airport sector. Ferrovial Airports adds value in the design, construction, financing and operation of airport infrastructures through long term asset investment, with a view to becoming one of the world’s major airport operators and investors.

Airports are highly strategic assets, given their significant impact on local economic development. In the case of Heathrow Airport, for example, the contribution to the UK economy is £23 billion per year.

In a context of increasing privatisation of airport infrastructures, Ferrovial Airports’ business model has proved to be ideally suited to meet the requirements of our interest groups. Our extensive operational experience, together with our financial strength and the synergies achieved with the other divisions within the group, has enabled us to increase the profitability of our assets through our business approach, focused on improving passenger experience, developing infrastructures and streamlining operational costs, amongst others.

Ferrovial operates a portfolio of 4 airports in the United Kingdom: Heathrow, Europe’s busiest hub, and Glasgow, Aberdeen, and Southampton.

In June 2022, Ferrovial Airports acquired a stake in the consortium appointed to design, construct and operate the New Terminal One at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport in the United States. Furthermore in July 2022, Ferrovial Airports completed the acquisition of a 60% stake in the company that manages the Dalaman International Airport concession in Turkey.
