The new passenger terminal at the Bratislava Airport with annual capacity of 3.5 million travellers should be opened before the start of the summer season in early June, the SITA newswire wrote.

The project has entered its final stage and all regular and charter flights will move from the existing terminal to the new building following trial operation. The renovation of the existing terminal will start immediately after flight operations relocate to the new building, said the spokesperson for the airport, Dana Madunická.

The reconstruction of the existing terminal and construction of a new terminal are vital for providing services in the coming years, the airport said. The reconstruction of the existing terminal should be completed by February 2012 and annual capacity of the airport will then exceed five million passengers.

Costs of the construction of the new passenger terminal and the reconstruction of the currently used facility are calculated at about €96 million.
