Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport commenced work on the second phase of the overhaul of its Terminal 1 building on Sunday. During this time, the hall connecting terminals one and two will be closed off to passengers, who will be able to access both buildings using their respective entryways. Check in and passport control will be unaffected at Terminal 1 during this time. The overhaul entails capacity expansion, new commercial space and a new automated baggage sorting facility. The newly refurbished hall between terminals one and two will feature 28 new check-in desks. Work is expected to be completed by April 2017. Earlier this month, the airport opened a new de-icing platform and outlined further infrastructure projects planned for 2017.
