Sarajevo Airport expansion

Sarajevo Airport awaits EBRD loan
The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) is considering providing a loan of up to 25 million Euros to Sarajevo International Airport. The loan will finance an extension of the passenger terminal, together with the upgrade and expansion of the taxiway and apron. The investments are required to meet the growing passenger traffic at the airport. In addition, measures to enhance the participation of the private sector in the operations of Sarajevo Airport will be introduced. The EBRD has a long-standing relationship with Sarajevo Airport and has contributed to the creation of Sarajevo Airport as a limited liability company owned by the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina. As part of the current project, the Bank will support measures that increase the participation of the private sector in the airport’s operations through the outsourcing of selected activities to private companies. In addition, the Bank will assist the airport in increasing the share of non-aviation revenues such as duty free areas, catering, business lounges and car parks. Finally, the project will include support for the European Union’s Open Skies policy.

Sarajevo Airport is the largest airport in Bosnia and Herzegovina. It was opened in 1969 and is served by 10 scheduled airlines. The total cost of the upgrade and expansion of the airport will amount to 31.9 million Euros.

    Because the majority of the airport is surrounded by urban areas expansion is greatly limited, so how much will the runway and apron be expanded? How much will the new terminal be expanded, and will there be some more airbridges?

    By the way, when will the project start?

    I THINK THEY WILL CONNECT THE OLD TERMINAL WITH THE NEW AND IT LOOKS LIKE THEY WILL EXPAND THE APRON WHERE B&H AIRLINES HAVE THERE HANGER.

    An airport in Visoko would be great. The airport would be 20 km away from the city centre though, but that's fine!
