"This is because the first stage included a variety of technologies that go on to the second stage, but we did of course make some savings in construction as well," Jančula said, as quoted by the TASR newswire. The cost of constructing the arrivals terminal is expected to be under €40 million. Part of this sum is to be covered by the airport from its revenues, while the remainder will be funded by a loan.
