Priština breaks through millionIn the first nine months of the year, Priština Airport handled 1.008.000 passengers, a 10% increase compared to the same period last year. Priština handled its millionth passengers almost a month ahead of last year. In 2009, the airport welcomed 1.2 million passengers while it is expected that it will process some 100.000 passengers more this year. This winter season, Adria Airways will introduce flights from Priština to Munich and Frankfurt in Germany providing a further boost to passenger numbers.
The Turkish-French consortium Limak-Aeroport de Lyon won a 20 year contract in May to manage the airport. The agreement foresees an investment of 140 million Euros. It will cover a modern, 27.000 square meter terminal building, a 77.000 square meter apron and runway, a new traffic control tower, car park facilities with a capacity for 1.750 vehicles and fuel tanks and the refurbishment of airport access roads. The airport is aiming to handle 4 million passengers per year.
