Farnborough Airport Sold

It has been announced publicly today that Farnborough Airport has been sold to MacQuarie Infrastructure and Real Assets (MIRA).  MIRA owns a majority percentage of AGS, a group that owns a number of airports including Southampton Airport.

The sale follows very closely behind the CAA’s controversial decision to grant large areas of controlled airspace to Farnborough airport.

This development raises serious questions about TAG Farnborough’s motivation to seek controlled airspace.
