Tonči Peović, the director of Zagreb Airport, says that the extension of the current terminal is a temporary solution until the construction of the city’s new terminal begins sometime in the near future. The current terminal is too small to handle the volume of passengers using the airport and big delays at check in desks have become frequent.
City authorities expect that construction of the first phase of Zagreb’s overdue, multi million Euro, new terminal will begin in August 2012. The first phase of the project should see the completion of a 40.000 square meter terminal building and four air bridges. The first phase of the project should be complete within two years, by 2014. If past promises by the city authority had been kept, Croatia’s capital city would already have had a new state of the art airport terminal.
