Zagreb will be the first airport in the country named after a former President…
The Croatian Government has accepted a proposal on Thursday to name the new Zagreb airport after former President Franjo Tuđman, N1 reports.
Zagreb’s new airport, which is currently under construction, will be named after Croatia’s first President.
The French-led Zagreb Airport International Company (ZAIC), who last year won a 30-year concession to manage and operate Zagreb International Airport, say that they are ahead of schedule with construction of the new multi-million euro terminal and it will be complete next year.
The brand new spanking terminal will eventually have the capacity to handle 5 million passengers annually, and will home 8 air bridges. The first phase of expansion will see the existing passenger capacity go from 2.2 million to 3.5 million per year, before adding 1.5 million more capacity in the next phase of the project.
