French Issued Zagreb Airport Building Permits – Work Starts Next Month

pleso (2)French consortium Zagreb Airport International Company (ZAIC) received all necessary building permits on Monday from the Croatian government to start building a new passenger terminal at Zagreb International Airport (Pleso).

ZAIC, who signed a 30-year concession with the Croatian government to build and manage a new passenger terminal in Croatia’s capital, will take over the airport in October when building begins. In the first phase of the project, the new terminal, worth 236 million euros, would be built and will be able to accommodate 5 million passengers per year. In the second phase, the building would be expanded to a capacity of 8 million passengers.

“I am a little disappointed because there are less journalists here than last time. I think that is because they now the project is going to plan. We have in our hands the building permit, one years work is actually in out hands. Nothing can stand in our way to realise this project. With regards to Zagreb Airport employees, everyone stays working under the same conditions,” ZAIC director Christophe Petit told a press conference on Monday.
