Works for the Expansion of the Ljubljana Airport Passenger Terminal Begin

A development priority for the airport is the new passenger terminal that will eliminate bottlenecks and improve standards for both passengers and employees. The project, which is planned to be carried out in two years, has begun this summer.

As Fraport Slovenija’s managing director, Zmago Skobir, explained: “These well-considered investments in infrastructure will improve standards for passengers and other airport users, while at the same time they will improve the competitive position of Ljubljana Airport."

The existing passenger terminal will be rearranged and reconstructed and will remain in use even after the new one is opened. 10,000 m² of new floor space will be added, including a new departure hall, 14 check-in desks (making 22 in total), five lines for security inspections and two baggage carousels in the first phase of reconstruction, with a new baggage sorting area, a large duty free shop, a new business salon, and renovated restaurants and promotion areas to follow. Capacity will be increased from 500 to 1,250 passengers per hour. The plan for the arrangement of outside areas in front of the terminal envisages green spaces, a spacious short-term parking area, and an adequate number of parking spaces for taxis, shuttles and buses. A corridor will connect the expanded new part with the existing areas and will be ready for use by the summer of 2021.
