Belgrade Airport control tower project gains pace

NEWS FLASH


The construction of Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport’s new 75-metre control tower is gaining pace with the project to be completed by August of next year. The concrete foundations of the four-level tower are now being laid next to the existing air traffic control centre, opened in 2010. A two-level flight control centre will be built at the base of the tower and linked to the air traffic control centre. The facility will stretch over an area of 7.500 square metres. The existing control tower at Belgrade Airport, built in 1962, will be closed and repurposed following the completion of the new facility in a year’s time.

    The whole area is a big construction site, on top of the ATC tower the terminal expansion is also rapidly progressing. They have already begun the construction of the third floor on the western end. Once that expansion and the tower are completed the whole complex will look quite nice.

      I think the private jet space is being moved all the way east, right when you turn right from Ledine onto the side road that takes you to the airport.
      In that space I suppose they will add more remote stands because they moved those rusty old planes to the museum and are cementing the grassy areas.

      Maybe they will use this space for cargo planes so that the B platform can be used for regular, passenger planes?

      Not too sure, I think it's still parked next to JAT Tehnika.

      Do you know what will happen with old ATC tower? It seams like nice place for observation deck or resturant.

      nemjee,
      If you think they will move private jet apron on the east of Jat tehnika i think you are wrong. There are some construction works on the east of Jat tehnika but i think they are building there some sort of temporary road for the construction of inserted runway, if i understood you right

      No idea but I think it was reported on here that it will be repurposed so I suppose it will become a restaurant. That would be pretty epic if you ask me.

      Jatovac, the area I am referring to is very large. It's all the way at the end/beginning of the runway, located between the taxiway and the access road from Ledine. It's not where the inserted runway is supposed to be. Personally I think it's a good idea to separate GA from the rest.

  3. It would be great if they could turn the old air control tower into a restaurant/café, and viewing area. Imagine the planespoting possibilities.

  4. Lepo je osecanje kada se procita zadovoljsvo nas na ovom blogu. Kada se stvarno vidi ocigledna transformacija i izgled tog Beogradskog Aerodroma. Otvaranjem novog kontrolnog tornja za godinu, otvara se sjajna mogucnost
    Koverzacije starog tornja u unikatni restoran i platforma sa sadrzinom za putnike, posetioce aerodroma i entuzijaste komercijalne avijacije. Toranj ima bar tri sprata za sadrzaj koj sam pomenuo. Iskreno, prije u ovom clanku su o ovoj ideji pomenuli ljudi koji prate razvoj i dogadjaje na projektu.
    Za dve nedelje cu nadam se i sam doleteti i obici terminale.
    Iskreno se radujem kao i mnogi dobro-zeljatelji.

    Have you been to control tower? There is no room up there for a restaurant. No room for a proper coffee shop either.

  6. Izgleda sramno, ako već rade zar nisu mogli malo da konsultuju estetiku. Dodatno sa zgradom kontrole letenja, koja je već promasena, ovo izgleda ko sakata nogica.

  7. Postovani Anon 14:45. Ja nisam bio na beogradskom kontrolnom tornju. Ako bude volje, a mogucnost covek stvara... Onda je moguce i modificirati par spratova na starom tornju. Ostaje vera i nada da ce Dogradjeni aerodrom na Surcinu imati izgradjene, testoran, platformu za posmatranje avio saobracaja sa kafeom. Moja je vera, Vasa je negacija. Vreme ce pokazati i ljudi koji odlucuju.
    Do tada sa strpljenjem i dobrim zeljama.

      Kakva negacija?

    2. Anon 07:12. Ako sam razumeo Vas tekst na engleskom, gde kazete da nema dovoljno prostora za restoran. Kao ni za cafe. Vi ste u pravu. Ako se hoce, konverzija i prositenje par spratova je moguce.
      To je do plana i volje investitora.
      Da li ce biti takve namene, Vi verovatn ste obavesteni.
      Za razliku od mene na ovoj daljini.
      Prijatno leto, i svako doro
