New Priština terminal on holdConstruction of Priština Airport’s brand new terminal has been delayed once again. Although work on the new multi million Euro project was supposed to have begun already, nothing except a visualisation of the future building has been placed in front of the existing terminal. The Turkish-French consortium, Limak Holding and Aeroport de Lyon, which will run Priština’s airport for the next 20 years, promised to begin construction of the new terminal building back in January. However, a delayed handover of the airport to its new management postponed the project the first time around. The price tag for the new terminal is expected to amount to 140 million Euros together with supporting infrastructure.
There is hope that work could begin soon. Priština Airport is one of EX-YU’s biggest airports when it comes to passenger numbers. In 2010 it handled 1.305.532 passengers, placing itself only behind Belgrade, Zagreb and Ljubljana. So far this year the airport is recording a passenger increase of 5%.
With this latest delay, the terminal is now expected to be completed in January 2013.
