The Croatian government has awarded a €324 million (US$423 million) concession contract for the construction of a new terminal at Zagreb Airport to the Zagreb Airport International Company (ZAIC) consortium, which is made up of Aéroports de Paris Management, Bouygues Batiment International and Viadukt.
The consortium will finance, design and construct a passenger terminal that will replace the current one at a cost of €236 million (US$308 million) and will operate the entire airport for 30 years, including the runways, the current passenger terminal during the entire construction period, the new terminal once it is completed, the cargo terminal, car parks and future property developments, at a cost of €88 million (US$115 million).
The construction works will last three years and will be carried out by Bouygues Batiment International in conjunction with Viadukt and other Croatian contractors. When completed, the new terminal will be capable of handling 5 million passengers annually, compared to the current terminal’s capacity of 2 million.
Aéroports de Paris Management will be responsible for operating and maintaining the airport. This new airport will further expand the portfolio of 19 airports already operated by the company.
