Figeľ: Bratislava Airport's new arrivals terminal should open by mid June

A new arrivals terminal at Bratislava's M.R. Štefánik Airport (BTS) ought to be completed by the middle of June of this year, Transport Minister Ján Figeľ said during a visit to the airport on Thursday, March 1. Airport director Maroš Jančula said that the costs incurred in constructing the arrivals terminal were about half the sum that was needed for construction of the new departures terminal, which opened in 2010.

"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.
