Czech company Metrostav and Slovak Trnavská Stavebná Spoločnosť also submitted bids for the project, which was originally estimated at Sk2.8 billion (€92.94 million), without VAT. Prague-based Metrostav bid Sk2.680 billion (€88.96 million) and Trnavská Stavebná Spoločnosť bid more than Sk3.051 billion (€101.27 million). However, the latter was excluded from the tender because it failed to meet the conditions of participation and requirements regarding the object of the order. It has not appealed that decision.

The project will increase Bratislava airport’s annual capacity to about 5 million passengers, which is almost double the current 2.6 million.

The project includes construction of a new terminal, which should be completed in May 2010, followed by reconstruction of the current terminal. The whole project should be complete by late February 2012.
The project will be financed from state budget and the state-controlled airport company.
