POPRAD airport will open a new arrival hall and construct a new light system by November.

“Enhancing the arrival hall will expand our capacity almost twofold and make the rooms much more comfortable for passengers,” Juraj Rokfalusy, head of the airport’s business and operation section, told SITA.

The new arrival hall will increase to capacity to 300 per hour and allow for two airplanes to be simultaneously loaded and unloaded – one each from a Schengen-zone and non-Schengen zone country. Construction began in July at a total cost of Sk3 million.

The airport has received Sk25 million in EU structural funds, 10 million of which will be spent to cover most of the cost of the new the system.

The airport will also run a new shuttle bus into town.
