A consortium consisting of three Romanian construction companies has completed a new terminal at Timișoara Traian Vuia International Airport (TSR)

Concelex Engineering, Concrete & Design Solutions, and Metroul built the terminal, which will be used for flights on routes to the Schengen area, said Concelex, the project coordinator

The new Schengen terminal at Timisoara Airport spans 12,000m2 and has six security filters, 18 check-in counters, and eight boarding gates. It has been designed to serve a total of 1,554 concurrent passengers across its two flows – external departures and external arrivals. The new terminal has a luggage processing capacity of 1,600 bags per hour for the external departures flow, while the arrivals flow allows three flights to be processed at the same time.

The value of the contract signed by Concelex Engineering for the project was 115.13m Romanian Leu (€23.2m).

The project cost 192m Leu (€38.6m) – the largest investment in the history of Timisoara Airport, and was financed from non-refundable EU funds received through the Large Infrastructure Operational Programme (POIM), transport minister Sorin Grindeanu said.

Romania and Bulgaria joined the Schengen area partially on March 31 when internal air and maritime border controls were lifted.

Founded in 1994, Concelex Engineering develops residential, civil engineering, infrastructure, and energy projects, operating in Romania and other EU countries such as Germany and Austria.
