Bratislava airport plans to announce a tender for the construction of a new terminal on September 16, it states in the latest copy of the European Union's Official Bulletin.
"The projected value (of the construction work) is between Sk2.5-3.5 billion (€82.6-115.6 million) excluding VAT," reads the bulletin.
The airport is applying for a contribution from EU funds to help finance the project. The new terminal should expand the airport's capacity to 3.5 million passengers per year by 2010. In the subsequent two years, capacity should increase further to 5 million passengers per year. The construction on the new terminal is due to start in December 2008. TASR
