Prospective bidders must not own more than 20% interest in the concessionaire of an airport, which is located within a 450 km radius from Belgrade and has serviced more than one million passengers in 2016.

Last year, Belgrade airport handled 4,924,992 passengers, up 3% on 2015 and slightly below its target of five million.
