Rab Island Likely to be Home to Croatia’s 10th Airport

Croatia1Authorities in Croatia are set to give the green light next month for the construction of the nations 10th commercial airport…

The honour of becoming the 10th commercial airport looks like it will go to the northern island of Rab. Years of research, feasibility and environmental impact studies which have cost close to 1 million euros, have resulted in authorities likely to approve the island as the home of a 1,700 metre-long runway airport which will handle commercial (150 seaters) and cargo flights. The airport, which estimates will handle around 200,000 passengers a year, will also see a pilots training facility built also on site.

The official sign-off is set to be done in September, reports Ex-Yu Aviation News, with the project costing around 60 million euros.
