The owner of Southampton Airport could be sold by investors, reports claim.

Investors in AGS Airports, which operates Southampton, are seemingly considering selling their stake in the company.

Unnamed sources quoted by Reuters claim the company may follow in the footsteps of infrastructure investors around Europe.

But AGS state the news is ‘simply speculation’.

Alongside Southampton, the company – owned by Macquarie and Ferrovial - also oversees operations at Glasgow and Aberdeen.

Among the largest of the airports that may see a change of ownership as soon as 2024 is Edinburgh, Reuters reports.

The airport’s owner Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP) is working on the sale of its majority stake.

This process may value Edinburgh Airport at over 2.5 billion euros, according to anonymous sources.

AGS Airports declined to comment on the claims made.
