Currently there are 800 workers on site, with the roof and facade of the terminal expected to be finished by the end of this year. Last year the French-led Zagreb Airport International Company (ZAIC) won a 30-year concession to manage and operate Zagreb International Airport.
The brand new terminal will 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. 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.
“It is important that are number of our companies are involved in the construction, nearly a thousand people are employed. It looks like the new passenger terminal will be built within the time limits,”said Minister Hajdaš Dončić. (photo / vlada)
