Pristina Airport will have its runway and taxiways extended, as well as its ILS (instrument landing system) upgraded. The runway will be extended from the current 2.560 metres to 3.000 metres. Due to the airport’s location and foggy weather in winter, it often experiences visibility issues which results in the diversion of flights. “We need to invest in the ILS and replace some of the equipment with the newest technology. The total investment is estimated to be around 30 million euros, which includes the extension of the runway and taxiways, and the purchase of new equipment”, Pristina Airport's General Manager, Haldun Firat Kokturk, says. No firm time-frame has been given as to when the planned work could begin. The airport's operator, Limak, opened a new 130 million euro passenger terminal in Pristina in late 2013 with the capacity to handle 3.2 million passengers per year.
