Building costs for the new section of the terminal reached €33.2 million while interior and technological costs came to €13.4 million. The financing came from the Airport’s own resources, namely from aviation and non-aviation revenues and external financing. Construction of the terminal’s arrival and departure hall cost €87.2 million, and interior and technological costs came to €33.4 million, costing a total of €120.6 million, as SITA reported.

Only the first phase of the terminal building was financed with public resources, costing €69.7 million. The returns on the investment are expected to come over the next 30 to 40 years, according to Maroš Jančula, the airport’s Chairman of the Board, as quoted by SITA.
