The construction of Niš Constantine the Great Airport’s new terminal building (pictured) is scheduled for completion by the end of next month, while it is expected to handle its first passengers in 2024. “Following the completion of construction work by the end of September, we will start equipping the new building, with the first passengers to be welcomed at the new facility during the 2024 summer season. The existing terminal will then be overhauled”, the General Manager of operator Airports of Serbia, Mihajlo Zdravković, said. The new 7.160-square-metre terminal will boast ten check-in desks, self-check-in stations, eight passport control booths, four passenger gates and one VIP gate. Furthermore, it will feature one air bridge and a luggage sorting facility. New food and beverage outlets, as well as duty free shops, will also be added, stretching over 700 square metres. The project will increase the airport’s annual capacity to 1.5 million passengers and will enable it to simultaneously handle six aircraft. The development is valued at eleven million euros. Niš Airport handled a record 261.301 passengers during the January – July period, representing an increase of 29.9% on last year and up 29.8% on the pre-pandemic 2019. This July, the airport registered its busiest month on record.
