The company Aerodromi Srbije doo has opened the tender for the preparation of the planning and project-technical documentation for the construction of the Trebinje Airport.
According to the project task, the location of the planned Trebinje Airport is around 14 km west of the Trebinje center, near Taleza in Republika Srpska.
The altitude of the reference point of the airport is around 266 meters, and the airport complex should take up around 282 ha, without access routes.
According to the tendering documentation, the structures that need to be planned, designed and built are the runway, the driving lanes, platforms, a heliport, technical platforms for the airport equipment, servicing lanes, a perimeter road and other internal traffic routes, a rescue-firefighting grounds, a parking lot for the visitors and the employees and access routes, as well as landscaping.
As for the buildings, a terminal building is to be raised, as is a flight control tower, a fire station, a cargo terminal, a fuel storage facility with a reloading and pumping station, a garage for the storage of airport equipment, a business aviation terminal, a hangar for business aviation aircraft, a fence of the airport’s perimeters, as well as auxiliary facilities.
There are two options for the runway – 3,000 and 3,500 meters, and the designer will offer one solution to the investor. The planned width is 45 meters.
When it comes to the terminal building, the planned number of passengers in the peak hour is 1,100 (550 arriving + 550 departing passengers), whereas the waiting room for business travelers will have a special gate and have a capacity of a minimum of 20 passengers.
A business aviation terminal is also planned, with a capacity of simultaneous handling of a minimum of 4 flights of code B aircraft, which is to be built in the second phase of the construction of the airport, as well as a hangar for business aviation aircraft, with a capacity of simultaneous parking of a minimum of 3 code B aircraft.
The second phase of the construction of the airport also entails the construction of a heliport, next to the general aviation platform and the business aviation terminal, and it will be meant for the purposes of urgent medical transport, search and rescue missions and business flights.
The projected number of air operations between 2023 and 2037 is 53,728 flights of aircraft of sizes up to Airbus A321 (the largest wide-body aircraft).
It is added that the structures and the buildings at the airport need to be equipped with adequate power, fire, information, TC, water and sewer systems, as well as air-conditioning, heating and cooling systems, lighting and a light signalization system, radio-navigation and weather systems, systems of access control, remote control and supervision, conveyors and other specialized systems necessary for the functioning of civil aviation at the Trebinje Airport.
– Considering the specific characteristics of the terrain where the construction of the airport is planned (a karst field), the bidder is obliged to carry out geological engineering, geotechnical, geomechanical and hydrological exploratory works and prepare the necessary studies for the further realization of the project – the tender says.
Bids may be submitted by May 17.
The construction of the Trebinje Airport is a joint project of Serbia and Republika Srpska, and it is to be financed by Serbia, which will also run the airport.
As Serbian Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure Tomislav Momirovic announced at the end of 2020, the construction of the Trebinje Airport is expected to start in the second quarter of 2021, for which, as he said, RSD 5 billion is planned in the budget.
According to an announcement made by the mayor of Trebinje, Mirko Curic, this March, the airport should start operating within a year.
Upon the construction of the airport, an air trip between Belgrade and Trebinje should take around 40 minutes.
