Abertis Infraestructuras, S.A. (Spanish pronunciation: [aˈβertis imfɾaestɾukˈtuɾas]) is a Spanish conglomerate corporation. The company runs 6,713 kilometres of motorways in Europe and operates more than a dozen airports in cities including London, Stockholm and Orlando. Abertis manages toll roads and parking garages, is owner of various television and radio transmission networks as well as of the concessionaire of London Luton Airport.
In April 2003, Acesa Infraestructures, a business founded in 1967 as Autopistas Conceionaria Española S.A., merged with Aurea Concessiones de Infraestructures, a business founded in 1971 as Autopistas de Mare Nostrum (into which Dragados had spun off its own toll roads), to form Abertis.
An attempt initiated in April 2006 to acquire Atlantia (formerly Autostrade), the leading Italian toll road operator, was aborted in January 2008 after opposition from the Italian Government. Abertis intends to sell some of its stake in the company.
On May 19, 2008, Abertis, along with Citi Infrastructure Investors of New York City, submitted a $12.8 billion proposal to lease the Pennsylvania Turnpike in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania for 75 years. However, the consortium withdrew the offer on September 30, 2008 as they felt the proposal would not win approval in the state legislature.
