Croatia’s government decided to allow the operator of the Zagreb airport, MZLZ, to borrow €19.5mn from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), it said in a statement on its website.
The company needs fresh cash to meet its liquidity needs as it has suffered severely from the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
In 2020, the turnover of the Zagreb airport shrank 73% y/y to €58mn.
