One of Croatia’s busiest airports is set to undergo major reconstruction and development. Dubrovnik Airport on the southern Dalmatian coast will see a 220 million euro upgrade in the next 7 years.
Unlike Zagreb Airport’s upgrade, Dubrovnik Airport bosses will not be looking for a concession partner and they believe that the project will be able to be funded via their own resources and from EU funding.
Croatia’s Transport Minister Sinisa Hajdas Doncic praised the project for its safety, environmental and energy efficiency aspects and he was convinced that the project would attract EU money because of its importance to Croatia and for Europe. Over 1.5 million passengers passed through Dubrovnik in 2012, a record for the airport which opened its doors in 1962.
