Vinci Airports has kicked off a new phase in its modernisation of Serbia's Belgrade Airport, the largest airport in the country.

The Terminal 2 project will first tackle the arrivals area on the ground floor and on the first floor near passport control. The work will include a complete reconstruction of the interior, an increased number of check-in counters, and more than 1,200m2 of space for new restaurants, bars and shops.

Centralised security control will be created on the first floor, to make the security process more efficient and passenger flow faster.  Work on the refurbishment of the A side gates is also ongoing, in addition to construction of a new roof corridor that will ensure separate spaces for arriving and departing passengers throughout the whole terminal building.

Preparatory works are also underway on the access roads, construction of new car parks, upgrading and reorganisation of traffic lanes, and a complete reconfiguration of the access plateau in front of the passenger terminal. This will enable faster access and more efficient traffic flow, as well as increasing long- and short-term parking capacity.

In addition to the interiors work, a solid waste and wastewater treatment plant, new heating plant and a solar farm are being built. Once complete, the complex will feature new large green areas and parks, helping make Belgrade one of the greenest airports in the region.
