Work will begin on April 7 and will be completed by April 21. During this period aircraft will be rerouted to Maribor, which is approximately 100 kilometres north-east from the Slovenian capital. The entire runway upgrade project will cost Ljubljana Airport 9 million Euros. It will be the first time since 1978 that the runway has been upgraded.
The resurfacing of the runway is just one in a line of many projects being carried out or planned for the airport. More about the complete project can be found here.
