Two major investments are planned for the airport in 2011, the expansion of Terminal 2 and the expansion of the parking platform. “The most important investment in 2011 will be the expansion of the terminal which will increase passenger comfort and services. We have to be very careful not to disturb other traffic during the expansion. This is why we have divided the project into 14 phases. There will be 8 new gates added to the terminal and the new areas will be opened once each phase of the project is complete”, Radosavljvević explains. He added that the expansion of the parking platform, which will allow more airlines to use the parking area instead of the gates, has already begun. “We have already connected our two main platform areas. We will add another one stretching over the size of 2 football pitches”.
