New terminal at Poprad Airport to be ready for the summer

A new terminal at the Poprad-Tatry airport is expected to open at the beginning of the next summer season.

"The total investment should reach Sk25 million," Poprad airport director Peter Polerecký said.

Construction of the new terminal will be co-financed from EU funds and the state budget.

The current capacity of the current arrivals hall is 150 passengers, which is insufficient. Polerecký said that the biggest problems are caused by the winter season, when passengers have a lot of luggage.

After the expansion, the terminal should be able to serve passengers of one 250-seat plane or passengers from two 150-seat planes.

In the coming years, the Poprad airport expects other investments will be necessary, ranging from Sk500 million to Sk750 million. Polerecký pointed out that over the 37 years of its existence, the airport’s runway has not undergone any major overhaul.
