The first working day following receipt of the request is 19 January 2015.

This request is made by Flughafen Wien and concerns activities relating to the exploitation of a geographical area for the purposes of provision of airports or other terminal facilities to carriers by air on the territory of Austria. The relevant notice was published in the OJ C 93 of 20 March 2015, page 22.

Pursuant to Annex IV, paragraph 1, point b of Directive 2014/25/EU, the Commission is allowed a period of 130 working days to take a decision on this request. This initial period expires on 30 July 2015.

Pursuant to Annex IV, point 2 of Directive 2014/25/EU, the Commission may require the Member State or the applicant or the independent national authority competent or any other competent national authority to provide all necessary information or to supplement or clarify information given within the appropriate time limit. On 27 February 2015 the Commission asked Flughafen Wien to provide additional information by 13 March 2015.

Pursuant to Annex IV, point 2, second phrase of Directive 2014/25/EU in case of late or incomplete answers to the Commission’s request for clarification or for the additional information, the period of 130 days as set out above, shall be suspended for the period between the expiry of the time limit set in the request for information and the receipt of the complete and correct information.

The final deadline will therefore expire after 90 working days after the receipt of complete and correct information.
