Work has started on a multi-million euro upgrade of the runway at Pula airport on Croatia’s Istrian Peninsula.

The major reconstruction of the runway at Pula airport, which was last upgraded 45 years ago, will also include extending the approach lighting system by an extra 500 metres.


It is expected to be a record year for Pula airport in 2017 with over half a million passengers forecast to be handled.


Pula airport will be closed for all traffic during the works. It is expected that the airport will re-open on 10 March 2017. The reconstruction of the runway is estimated to cost over 3 million euros.
