Future look of Priština’s new terminalThe construction of the new multi million Euro terminal at Priština Airport is on schedule with the ground floor currently under construction while building work has been completed on the underground floor. Government officials praised the Turkish-French consortium, Limak Holding and Aeroport de Lyon, which are overseeing the construction of the new terminal and will run Priština’s airport for the next twenty years.
The investment is worth 120 million Euros and will see the construction of a new terminal stretching over 42.000 square metres, a new control tower, an apron able to accommodate nine Boeing 737 jets, three air bridges, a car park for 1.750 vehicles, a new access road from the city to the airport and the widening of taxiways. A total of 150 people will work inside the new terminal, expected to open in January 2013.
Construction of Priština's terminal progressesThis year, Priština is battling for the title of the third busiest airport in the former Yugoslavia, competing against former place holder Ljubljana and the surging Dubrovnik and Split. Priština Airport has recorded strong growth this year. In 2010, Priština Airport handled 1.305.532 passengers.
