The terminal expansion project will amount to 11 million Kuna (1.4 million Euros) and will see the expansion of the international departures lounge and the construction of a new domestic arrivals area. Following the expansion, the terminal building will spread over 7.000 square metres. The airport authorities at Zadar have said that they plan to keep current airlines and lure new ones in time for the 2011 summer season. They expect that the upward passenger trend the airport has been experiencing for the past 2 years will continue into 2011. The expanded terminal will be complete in time for the peak tourist season next year.
