No "Crash Landing in Manila"

    Frankfurt/Main, Germany (ots) - In response to today's report in
the German newspaper Handelsblatt, Fraport AG explained that no funds
from the company's initial public offering (IPO) have flown into the
terminal project in Manila, the Philippines. Rather, the IPO proceeds
were invested or used for debt repayment. Since the end of 2000,
Fraport AG has not made any additional funding available to the
Piatco project company in Manila.
    The auditing company KPMG prepared an evaluation of the Manila
project's risk position as of the end of 2000. Fraport AG has taken
the study's recommendations into account as far as possible.
    Fraport AG stresses that the contracts for building and operating
the international terminal in Manila were signed in 1999 with the
elected government at that time and are legally binding under
international law.
    Currently, Fraport AG is involved in intensive negotiations with
its partners in Piatco and the Philippine government, with the goal
of fulfilling the requirement for paying out the financial package
agreed with an international banking consortium. Fraport AG will only
be prepared to make further funding available for the terminal
project, if certain framework conditions are fulfilled.
