NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Macquarie Infrastructure Company (NYSE: MIC) announced that its Atlantic Aviation subsidiary has concluded the sale of fixed base operations at Fresno Yosemite International Airport and Cleveland Cuyahoga County Airport.

“Atlantic concluded that each of these operations was sub-scale, relative to their market, and selling them provides Atlantic with an opportunity to redeploy the sale proceeds in new or existing markets where it has stronger growth prospects”

“Atlantic’s sale of the facilities and leaseholds at Fresno and Cleveland are the product of a comprehensive review of the business’ portfolio,” said James Hooke, Chief Executive Officer of MIC. “Atlantic concluded that each of these operations was sub-scale, relative to their market, and selling them provides Atlantic with an opportunity to redeploy the sale proceeds in new or existing markets where it has stronger growth prospects,” added Hooke.

Hooke notes that Atlantic Aviation anticipates opening a newly constructed FBO at the Will Rogers’ airport in Oklahoma City on May 15, 2011.

Both sales are subject to satisfaction of conditions consistent with transactions of similar size and complexity. The transactions are not expected to have a material impact on Atlantic’s ongoing financial performance.

The facilities and leasehold at Fresno have been sold to a subsidiary of Ross Aviation. The facilities and leasehold at Cleveland Cuyahoga have been sold to a subsidiary of The Cleveland Jet Center. Terms of the sales were not disclosed.

Atlantic continues to operate the largest network of fixed base operations in the U.S. with facilities at 66 airports across the country.
