The company also added: “Together with our construction partner, Vinci Terna Construction JV and their subcontractors, Belgrade Airport has developed a specific plan to mitigate the impacts of the pandemic on the works dynamic and projected deadlines”.

The company is currently working on expanding the existing Terminal 2 building (C Pier). The project is expected to be completed in September of next year. Furthermore, the upgrade of the aprons and the construction of bus gates on Terminal 1 are also in progress, while preparatory work on the construction of the new inserted runway began several days ago.

Furthermore, Vinci’s subcontractor, Energoprojekt has unveiled several visuals of the interior. Next stages of the project will have a strong eco-friendly focus in order to reduce environmental impact in terms of CO2, water and waste.

A new power plant will be built to produce heat and electricity, which will shift from heavy fuels to more environmentally friendly energy sources and reduce emissions. The plan also includes a solar power plant, as well as solid waste and wastewater treatment plants.
