TAV Airports helps new Zagreb Airport terminal go into operation
Operated by a consortium including Turkey's TAV Airports, Zagreb Airport has put its new passenger terminal into operation.
The terminal will provide service to five million passengers per annum.
TAV Airports President & CEO Sani Şener said: “The new passenger terminal, the biggest infrastructure investment in the last decade in Croatia, will make Zagreb one of the leading airports in the region thanks to its modern architecture and the latest infrastructure technology. Having become one of the world's highly-preferred brands in airport construction and operation, TAV is glad to partake in this project. Zagreb is the first project of our consortium, including our international partners Group ADP and Bouygues in Europe; Cuba Havana Airport will follow. We believe, this project will contribute to the development of a good relationship and cooperation between Turkey and Croatia".
The new terminal, which was established over an area of 65,000 sqm and with an investment of €330 mln, consists of eight passenger boarding bridges, 30 check-in counters and a car park having a capacity of 1,100 vehicles. In the following periods, the annual capacity of the terminal is expected to be increased to eight million passengers. TAV will be the operator of Zagreb Airport until 2042.
TAV Airports holds 15 per cent shares of a consortium that was awarded the project. The consortium took over the operation of Zagreb Airport in December 2013. The construction works of the new terminal started in May 2014.
