Prague Airport - ACI Commercial & Retail Conference invitation
Prague Airport reached the record milestone of 15 million passengers in 2017 and has announced extensive development plans going beyond 2035. Among the projects that will be realised over the next two decades are a new central security check area, new check-in desks, new aircraft stands, an extended terminal and a brand new parallel runway.
“We have recently introduced our development plans covering the period of time to 2035 and in some cases beyond,” explains Vaclav Rehor, CEO Prague Airport. “The plans can be split into three phases. The short-term development plan is focused on increasing passenger capacity within the current shape of the airport. That phase is happening right now. Mid-term development will include the first part of a new Terminal 2 and the construction of a new parallel runway. These two major projects should be realised approximately between 2022 and 2026 and are designed to increase the airport’s capacity up to 21 million passengers. The estimated cost of all short-term and mid-term development projects is €1 billion.”
“The long-term plan will involve the development of public areas in close proximity to the terminals – the so-called Airport City North and Airport City South – and this should be completed around 2035. We expect passenger numbers to double by the time the long-term development will be in progress,” continues Rehor. “In 2026, which is the year we expect the parallel runway to open, the number of passengers is forecast to increase up to 21 million.” Read the full story
