Zagreb International Airport Makeover Due To Start In September

The 230 million euro plus modernisation of Zagreb International Airport is set to begin in September this year, after the European Investment Bank (EIB) approved a 120 million euro loan for the French Zagreb Airport International Company (ZAIC), who last year signed a concession to build a new passenger terminal at Zagreb Airport and manage the existing and the new terminal and their infrastructure.

“We have more than enough money now to complete the project. This is very good news and we will soon be able to begin work,” said ZAIC’s Christophe Petit, adding that work will begin this September once permits are granted.

The new passenger terminal, which is expected to be complete in 3 years will be able to accommodate 8 million passengers per year.The concession revenue over the 30-year period will amount to 1.94 billion euros.
