Good news, the French company I wanted to win the new Zagreb Airport thirty year consession has won, and got the go ahead to build. They will start building this year, and the whole project should be finished 2015.

There's a video attached to the link where the old existing airport is, and where the new terminal will be. I love this design, and it's the way to go which reflects todays airport designs.

Expect an addition terminal two to be made in the future where the old terminal will be, plus additional runway.

here more information



New beginnings


The Croatian Deputy Prime Minister, Radimir Čačić, has said that the government will accept an offer from Aeroports de Paris to run Zagreb Airport and build the long awaited new terminal. The French group, which bid under the name Zagreb Airport International, will build the new terminal from scratch and pay 87 million Euros in concession fees over the next thirty years. The new terminal should be in use by 2015.

Speaking to the press, Čačić said the new terminal will help boost tourism and will also provide a chance for Croatia to become a regional hub in the Balkans. “Construction work will start by the end of the year”, Čačić added. The offer by Aeroports de Paris outlines that during the first phase of the project a new terminal will be built with the capacity to handle five million passengers. The price tag of the project will amount to approximately 190 million Euros, although the exact expenses will be finalised within 180 days after the bid is officially accepted by the government. A further 29 million Euros will be invested after passenger traffic through the airport exceeds five million travellers.

The French offer was the only one received after a controversial year-long tender in 2011. Plans to build a new terminal at Zagreb Airport have been floating around for more than a decade. In 2011, Zagreb Airport handled 2.319.098 passengers, an increase of almost 12% on 2010.

Soon in Sarajevo


The Austrian low cost airline Niki, now owned by Air Berlin, plans to introduce flights to Sarajevo, its Managing Director, Christian Lajsek says. The airline is in the process of evaluating the Bosnian market but also other countries in the Balkans, with Tirana mentioned as a possible addition to its network. Speaking to “ATW Daily News”, Lajsek says its network expansion will take place after Air Berlin enters the One World alliance on March 20. For the past year rumours have been circulating that Air Berlin is considering launching flights from Dusseldorf to Sarajevo.

A new service from Vienna would be warmly welcomed by passengers and would mark the end to Austrian Airlines’ monopoly on the route. When B&H Airlines announced its plans to resume services to Vienna this summer, Austrian was forced to reduce its ticket prices. After news broke last week that the Bosnian national carrier cancelled its planned summer expansion, Austrian inflated its prices. The Austrian national carrier will operate two daily flights between the two cities over the 2012 summer season. Niki’s arrival at Sarajevo would also see the return of a One World alliance airline, following British Airways’ pull out from the Bosnian capital. Currently, nearly all airlines operating to and from Sarajevo are members of Star Alliance.

Air Berlin and Niki are present in the region. The two airlines operate flights to Priština and Belgrade and seasonal flights to the Croatian coast as well as Tivat in Montenegro. Lufthansa’s Germanwings is the only low cost airline operating all year round services to Sarajevo. During the summer Norwegian Air Shuttle operates flights from Stockholm and Oslo.

New hangar for Jat Tehnika
Jat Tehnika has announced the construction of an additional hangar at Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport which will be able to handle a Boeing B737 next generation aircraft as well as the Airbus A320. Furthermore, necessary equipment is being purchased in order for the maintenance company to begin work on servicing Airbus jets this summer. During the week, the Serbian government gave its approval for Tehnika to take out a five million euro loan in order to finance its new endeavours. The loan will be repaid within the next five years. Jat Tehnika, which was separated from Jat Airways in 2006, expects to see an increase in business as a result of the new investments.

Tehnika currently has three hangars at its disposal at Belgrade Airport. Two are used for medium sized aircraft and can fit three jets each at one single time while the third hangar is for larger aircraft and can fit two Boeing 747-400s. Besides Jat, the company currently provides maintenance to airlines such as Jet2.com, NordStar Airlines, Astraeus Airlines and Transaero.

Meanwhile, Jat Airways has announced that it has resumed operations at terminal two at Belgrade Airport. The carrier was forced to move to the older terminal one due to expansion wok being carried out at Serbia’s busiest airport. Furthermore, the airline has launched a new frequent flyer program for passengers on March 1.

Please, rename this thread one more time as it contains data that is false.

* The major int. airport in Greece is not AXD (alexandropouli), but ATH (Athens)

* The major int. airport in Bulgaria is not CLJ (cluj, Romania), but SOF (Sofia)

Two more major airports should be added:

* The major int. airport of Kosovo, which is PRN (Pristina)

* The major int. airport of Albania, which is TIA (Tirana)


Thank you.

Feel free to post more airports that aren't listed as long as they are within the Balkan area. As for SOF and ATH, those have their own separate threads. I suggest using the search function in this forum to find such threads.

Jat Airways has had a solid start to the year, by handling 74.908 passengers in January, an increase of 8% compared to the same month last year. This is despite a drop in the number of operated flights by 7%. The average cabin load factor stood at 66% a big 10 point increase on last year.

Despite persistent media speculation regarding Jat’s future and increased competition, results show passengers are returning to the Serbian carrier. In January, on flights heading to and from Podgorica and Tivat, Jat recorded a 23% passenger increase. On Euro Mediterranean services numbers were up 5% while charter flights saw a 410% passenger increase, although it should be noted that the number of operated charters increased by 100%. Last year they were mostly inexistent during the winter months.

Jat ended 2011 as the second busiest airline in the former Yugoslavia by welcoming 1.219.703 passengers. Its revenues were also significantly up although its actual profits and losses will be known once the official financial results are published. A total of nine promotional ticket sales last year could hit the airline’s finances despite them leading to passenger growth.

The European Commission (EC) has said its investigation into subsidies provided by the Macedonian government to low cost airlines, primarily Wizz Air, at Skopje Alexander the Great Airport since 2012, have so far been inconclusive. The Commission launched an investigation in late 2014 after a complaint was made by the Kosovo Civil Aviation Authority, which claims the incentives have created unfair competition in the region. The EC notes it is keeping in contact with relevant authorities in both Macedonia and Kosovo but that the probe has not led to a firm conclusion on the matter. It adds it wants to put the issue of fair and transparent market conditions into context. Pristina Airport, which is busier than its counterpart in Skopje, was overtaken by the Macedonian airport in monthly passenger figures this May for the first time in over ten years.

The Macedonian Ministry for Transport and Communication says its incentives policy has been carefully analysed and is in accordance with EU rules and regulations. It adds that in 2012 the Kosovan Ministry for Infrastructure was sent additional information on the subsidy program which, it says, respects all international legal procedures. The Macedonian government launched a three-year subsidy scheme in 2012. It has proven successful with Wizz Air opening a base at Skopje Airport, which has in turn led to significant passenger and traffic growth. A fresh round of subsidies was offered last year, which led to Wizz Air basing a third aircraft in the Macedonian capital, launching a handful of new routes and introducing services from Ohrid as well.

Wizz Air says the subsidies it receives from the Macedonian government are in line with EU regulations. “Financial support is provided on a transparent basis through public tenders. We are fine and we have no issues with Brussels”, Wizz Air’s CEO, Jozsef Varadi, said. However, the head of Pristina Airport insists, “In this competitive environment we cannot catch significant growth without the support of the government. We can do our best with incentives, but in the end the government has to support it”. The Kosovo Civil Aviation Authority has based its complaint against Macedonia on the Common Aviation Area Agreement, which the European Union has signed with countries in the western Balkans. According to the Agreement, “This aviation area implies the adoption of the part of the Acquis containing the European aviation rules … The processes of market opening and regulatory convergence take place in parallel in order to promote fair competition and the implementation of common high safety, security, environmental and other standards”. Pristina Airport itself is offering a range of subsidies to stimulate traffic and passenger growth, however, these are being offered by the airport’s operator, rather than the government, as is the case in Macedonia.

Belgrade and Sarajevo record busiest month


Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport and Sarajevo Airport have recorded their busiest month since opening their doors five decades ago, with both seeing solid growth throughout July. Belgrade welcomed 589.159 passengers, an increase of 4.3% compared to the same month last year. The figure is also 4% above the airport's previous monthly record, achieved in August 2015, when it handled 574.654 travellers. During July, Belgrade saw its flight operations improve 3% on last year. The airport's busiest 24 hours on record was registered on July 28, when it handled 20.908 passengers. The number was almost surpassed the following day when it saw 20.871 travellers use its services.

In a statement, Belgrade Airport said, "During August, which is traditionally our busiest month of the year, we expect to achieve another historical record in terms of passenger numbers". During the first seven months of the year, the airport welcomed 2.700.849 passengers, which is still down 0.04% on the same period last year, following a mixed performance during the first six months of 2016. The airport will surpass the three million passenger mark during August. "Last year we handled 4.7 million passengers, while we expect to welcome our fifth-millionth passenger by the end of the year", the airport added. Last week, acting General Manager, Saša Vaisavljević, said, "Despite the fact that during the first half of the year our passenger numbers decreased, our growth in the second half will be on the wings of Air Serbia's major network expansion. We expect to see a historic summer with numbers up in both scheduled and charter flights and our five-millionth passenger to be welcomed in early December".

Sarajevo Airport staged a comeback and registered its busiest month on record in July, with 109.141 passengers handled. It is only the second time Sarajevo has surpassed the 100.000 passenger threshold in a single month, the other being in August of last year. The figure represents an impressive increase of 22.2% compared to the same month in 2015. So far this year, the airport has seen 466.606 travellers pass through its doors, up 5.7%. The historic monthly record is expected to be surpassed during August, which is traditionally the airport's busiest month of the year. The acting General Manager of Sarajevo Airport, Armin Kajmaković, says he is certain 2016 will be remembered as a "turning point" for the airport. "With ambitious projects and innovations, we look forward to keeping up with modern trends. Already in November, travellers can expect the opening of Qatar Airways' service from Doha, and we have also resumed negotiations with the Hungarian airline Wizz Air", Mr Kajmaković notes.

If you want to be accurate in the threat, you'd need to include PRN and TIA also widely considered as parts of the Balkans.
