Bucharest’s Henri Coanda International Airport may get a new passenger terminal, part of a wider development project with an estimated value of RON 4.75 billion (over EUR 1 billion).
The Transport Ministry has launched into public debate a Government decision draft for approving the technical and economic indicators of this project, which is presented as an investment objective of national importance and public utility.
Besides a new terminal, the project includes a new passenger boarding platform, taxiways, access roads, parking and administrative buildings. The investment should be carried out over a period of five years and will be financed from the Bucharest Airport Company’s own funds as well as from EU funds, bank loans and other private sources.
The Henri Coanda International Airport currently has only one terminal made of several buildings. The airport has seen a fast increase in the number of passengers transiting it in recent years, being among the most dynamic in Europe. Last year, the two airports that serve Bucharest had a total of 12.84 million passengers, up by 16.8% compared to 2016. This year, the number is expected to surpass 14 million.
