Belgrade starts second phase of terminal overhaul

NEWS FLASH


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.

    3. I think the idea is to preserve the original modernistic look from the 1960, but so that it is functional for 2017.
      Old Dubrovnik town is "oldfashioned" too ;)

    4. I can't see the resemblance btw the DBV and BEG terminals. DBV is modern and contemporary. I didn't see any 1960s cladding I must admit

    5. He was talking about the city and not the airport. They are preserving the original look. You haven't even seen the finished product so reserve your negativity and judgment (caused by other things, not a rendering) until you see the actual finished product.

    6. OK I get it. 1960s grandeur with a fresh lick of paint to bring it up to the year 2017? Cool. I might watch grand designs and see if the BEG pops up as an example

    7. You have not seen the finished product and have no clue what it will look like. When you do you can pass your negative foul judgment because you and me both know that even if they built a spaceship your comment would be the same.

    8. I'm not sure what tangent you are on? I like the 1960s chic with a cost effective refresh. Why would you build a space ship as a terminal? I'm confused?

  3. Hospital or crematory? Ugly. They should have kept a green accents and original color combinations with some modernization. Another failure.

    2. But this "old look" was not the original look, but the result of the previous renewal.

    3. Oh sorry Mr. Trump, I didn't know you were commenting. :D

  4. Automated baggage sorting is exactly what they need. They need 15 minute connections like VIE.

  5. Does anybody know, can BEG handle two B777 in the same time, is there enough space ? But i think that they are connected to airport building with air bridge of course.

    1. Used to handle 3 DC-10s and either a 742 or a L1011 simultaneously many moons ago, don't see a reason why it couldn't do it again...

  6. Svi objekti izgradjeni na aerodromu pripadaju proslosti. Ne impresioniraju i pored preuredjenja, dogradnji... Jedini pravi objekat dostojan dvadeset prvog veka po opremljenosti i operativnosti jeste nova Zgrada SMATSA kod parkinga. Posle ulaska koncesionara u ovoj godini, dolazi vreme stvarnog ulaska u savremene aerodrome u ovom delu Evrope. Tu pre svega vidim gradnju Treceg terminala i ostalih objekata buduceg vazdusnog centra na Nikoli Tesli. Od Vlade i ministarstava Saobracaja i finansija prvenstveno, zavisice duzina vremena uvodjenje Srpse vazdusne luke u nivo stvarno respektabilnih Evropskih vazdusnih luka.

  7. "Pre svega pokrenućemo pitanje uvođenja direktne linije između Beograda i Pekinga, ili nekog drugog velikog grada, kako bismo iskoristili bezvizni režim." - sad je pitanje da li ce u BEG-PEK biti realizovana linija
