Project Description

The provision of a non-sovereign loan of up to US$ 10 mln (€8.7 mln) to JSC "Manas International Airport" ("Manas"), majority owned by the Government of Kyrgyzstan.

Proceeds of the loan will be used to finance part of the rehabilitation programme of Bishkek Airport's infrastructure, namely upgrade of the drop-off/pick-up lane, terminal extension and the construction of a parking lot.

Project Objectives

The Project will address the growing demand for good quality airport services in the Kyrgyz Republic. The Project is considered as an important step towards engaging in policy dialogue with the Kyrgyz authorities regarding the airport infrastructure development and "Open Skies" initiative.

Transition Impact

Transition impact is expected to be derived from the following:

  • The project will contribute to the competitive quality, through the introduction of revenue increase measures aimed at the improvement of profitability. The extension of commercial space, including the terminal extension with additional commercial space, a parking lot with card-based payments and upgrade of a car approach lane, will contribute to the improved non-aeronautical revenue. 
  • The introduction of the sector-wide master plan will also establish a strategic road map for future investments in the airport infrastructure, and contribute to higher capital expenditures focus and efficiency.
  • The project will also support the well-governed quality, through the introduction of certifications for occupational health and safety standards. The PSD will be updated prior to Board.
