Nigerian Man Buys Londons Second-Largest Airport [Video]


Adebayo Ogunlesi, looking to stir up the airport business in Britain, has become the new owner of Gatwick Airport, purchasing London’s second largest airport.

As chairman of Global Infrastructure Partners,the Nigerian man aims “to make Gatwick a truly first class experience”.

Although greatness is undeniable, it also takes time as well as a process and Ogunlesi stated that it could be “somewhere between 12 and 18 months” before passengers started noticing a difference at the airport.  GIP agreed a £1.51bn deal with Gatwick’s current operator BAA last week, which represented a “good price”.
