AIRPORT Bratislava launched into operation the second section of its new terminal building on July 13, which will handle both arrivals and departures. The new hall is connected to another terminal which has been in operation for two years, enabling the largest Slovak airport to handle an estimated 5 million passengers per year.
Building costs for the new section of the terminal reached €33.2 million while interior and technological costs came to €13.4 million. The financing came from the Airport’s own resources, namely from aviation and non-aviation revenues and external financing. Construction of the terminal’s arrival and departure hall cost €87.2 million, and interior and technological costs came to €33.4 million, costing a total of €120.6 million, as SITA reported.
Only the first phase of the terminal building was financed with public resources, costing €69.7 million. The returns on the investment are expected to come over the next 30 to 40 years, according to Maroš Jančula, the airport’s Chairman of the Board, as quoted by SITA.
