They remind that, parallel with these works, the plan is to also extend Platform C and Taxiway F on an area of around 47,000 m2, within which the forming of seven new parking positions for narrow-body planes is planned, with the possibility of having two such positions used alternatively for the parking of a wide-body plane, which will contribute to an increase in the capacities of the airport.
– The construction of Platform E is also part of the initiated first phase of the expansion of the platforms and entails construction activities on an area of close to 25,000 m2, across from the existing goods-customs terminal, which will enable an optimization of the capacities for the handling of airplanes in remote parking positions – they say for our portal.
They add that the beginning of the construction of a new deicing and frost-prevention platform, on an area of around 25,500 m2, is planned for the end of the first quarter of this year.
The operator of the Nikola Tesla Airport reminds that the preparatory works on the construction of an inserted runway of 3,500 m and the construction of new taxiways, some of which will be designed as taxiways for a quick exit of an aircraft from the runway, the kind of which, the company says, have not existed in the air traffic system in Serbia so far, is also planned.
– Furthermore, in the first part of this year, the reconstruction of access roads, the construction of new parking lots, the extension and reorganization of road lanes and a full reconfiguration of the access area in front of the passenger terminal are to begin. This project enables quicker access and traffic flow for taxi vehicles, public transport buses, tourist and out-of-system buses, as well as more than double the capacities for short-term vehicle parking. The new, modern parking lot for visitors, with 715 parking spots, in addition to premium spaces, will also feature spaces for people with limited mobility, as well as spaces with chargers for electric vehicles, and the plan is to also complete the works and open the parking lot for extended periods of time, with a capacity of around 1,500 parking spaces – Belgrade Airport says.
