New Zagreb Airport Terminal Ahead of Schedule

ZagrebThe 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…

Zagreb Airport CEO, Bruno Mazurkiewicz, said that construction, which started this summer, was two months ahead of schedule and that the brand new terminal at Pleso could expect to be opened by December 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.

Around 450 are reportedly working on site around the clock, with four Croatian firms involved in the construction, reported Ex-YU Aviation news. Total investment of the project is 331 million euros, of which 243 million is earmarked for the terminal design and construction, and the remainder for the maintenance of airport infrastructure over the entire period of the thirty year concession. Zagreb has seen double-digit growth in tourism arrivals in the last 2 years, with Zagreb Airport recording a 9% increase in passenger numbers so far this year.
