“A sale such as this, comprising the entire contents and infrastructure of an entire major airport terminal is unprecedented, to say the least,” says Daniel Gray, managing partner of GA Global Partners Europe. 
“Not only does this represent a rare opportunity for a young airport to fully equip a new terminal, but many of the items in this sale could be refurbished or repurposed for a variety of uses in other industries – let alone some of the historical value to many of the items.”
