Works council criticizes impasse over Hahn sale

The stalemate surrounding the sale of the insolvent Frankfurt-Hahn Airport is now also causing criticism from the works council, which emphasizes that all wages and salaries have hitherto arrived on time in the accounts.

The reason for this is that the company Swift Conjoy, to which the bid was originally awarded, has not yet paid the purchase price. An alternative has now been found in NR Holding AG, but this is majority-owned by the Russian Viktor Charitonin. The works council criticizes the fact that, given the war in Ukraine, the picture would be less than ideal.

NR Holding GmbH explained to the DPA, among other things, that the majority will be in the hands of German investors. If you were awarded the contract, you would own less than 25 percent and therefore not have a blocking minority.
