Sarajevo Airport is in the process of overhauling part of its apron ahead of planned work on its runway. The reconstruction of 3.500 square metres of the apron will ensure its durability over the next twenty years. The first phase of the overhaul was completed in 2014, when work was undertaken on an area of 1.600 square metres. The investment is valued at almost 409.200 euros and is scheduled for completion at the start of next month. The upcoming runway reconstruction has been described as an "extremely challenging project", valued at 10.2 million euros. "It will have to be done, since the runway was last upgraded in 1998. We are currently undertaking some studies which will show us in which way, what part and which zones work has to be carried out and whether total reconstruction is necessary. This decision will be influenced by how long the airport will have to be closed for commercial traffic", General Manager, Armin Kajmaković, said recently.
