A new terminal complex has been added to the Thessaloniki airport aiming to make of the second largest airport of Greece a rival to Europe’s most popular airports.
The new terminal is linked via skyway bridges to the redesigned existing terminal, doubling the amount of terminal space available. It provides more check-in space, twice as many departure gates, and a wide range of restaurant and shopping facilities.
The €100 million development plan of the Thessaloniki airport was completed by Fraport Greece three months ahead of schedule.
It was part of the €440-million four- year reconstruction program of the 14 regional aiports Fraport Greece manages.
Fraport Greece has delivered five new terminals, expanded and modernized five existing terminals, and upgraded four other terminals. Construction projects at airside operational areas of the regional airports included renovating 12 runways, improving ramp areas, and constructing and renovating 12 fire stations.
All of the airports have also been equipped with new baggage handling and security detection systems.
“These airports will serve as a catalyst for re-starting the vital Greek tourist industry” Fraport Greece CEO, Alexander Zinell, said.
Intrakat Group is the Greek construction company that carried out the construction projects.
