The multi million euro expansion of Dubrovnik Airport is in full swing, with construction of the new Terminal C building to be completed on schedule in September, while the official opening is slated for March 2017. The new terminal will stretch over 24.181 square metres and have the capacity to handle 3.5 million passengers per year, according to the project outline. Furthermore, it will feature an additional two air bridges. The new facility is located next to the existing Terminal B building. Once all work is completed, the two will be combined into a single functioning unit. The new terminal is part of a major 274 million euro expansion, which includes the construction of new storage facilities, access roads, a car park and the lengthening of the runway and taxiways. The airport plans to begin work on expanding its apron and taxiways later this year, while the overhaul of the runway is scheduled for next winter. The entire expansion project is to be completed in 2019 and is largely financed through EU structural funds.
