The Board of Directors of Aena has granted Lidl a surface right in rem on a plot of land at Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas Airport for the purpose of building a supermarket. This space, which forms part of Aena's property at the airport, is part of the Airport City, a project designed to offer complementary services to passengers and the surrounding region.
The company Lidl will be responsible for the construction, management and operation of the supermarket. In addition, the supermarket will have a car park for the exclusive use of its customers. The contract awarded has a duration of 30 years. In financial terms, Lidl will make payments based on two concepts: a monthly rent which will increase over time and a one-off payment to be made at the beginning of the contract. It is essential that Lidl obtains all relevant authorisations and licences for this activity. In addition, it must have the approval of Aena to ensure that the project is aligned with the needs and functionality of the airport.
Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas Airport City
The ambitious Airport City project, located at Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas Airport, envisages a buildable area of 2.1 million square metres. This "city" will combine different development activities. Among them, a logistics hub that will include various facilities, such as storage and logistics warehouses; cross-docking; BPO (Business Process Outsourcing) and companies that provide aviation services. In addition, the project will include Air City, with offices, hotels and services for passengers and users, as well as activities related to aeronautics and cargo transport.
The plan highlights the opportunity for new product development and has environmental, social and economic sustainability as its pillars. It also highlights Aena's commitment to the region, ensuring that the project coexists harmoniously with its surroundings.
