The new terminal at Bratislava's M.R. Štefánik Airport was officially opened on Wednesday, June 9 and the facility should see its first airline passengers on Thursday, the TASR newswire reported
The terminal will be extended by the old terminal (used from 1970 until now) when its remodelling is completed sometime within the next 12 months and raise its capacity to 5 million travellers a year from 3.5 million.
Building contractor for the project is ZIPP, which has offered to construct the entire project for €85 million, Zdeněk Chraml, head of the airport management company, told TASR. He added that the total price, including runways and other connector roads, is just under €96 million.
