“The construction of Zagreb Airport’s new passenger terminal is in its final months with work expected to be completed in September and the opening scheduled for March 2017. At approximately 65.000 square metres, the facility is spread over three floors and features three baggage carousels, eight air bridges, nine security checkpoints, 23 passport control booths and a car park with the capacity to handle 1.100 vehicles. The rectangular main body of the terminal extends into two asymmetric piers, with the west pier, for international operations, boasting six air bridges and the east pier, for domestic traffic, featuring two air bridges. In addition, one air bridge in the international section will be able to accommodate larger aircraft such as the Boeing 777 and B747. Furthermore, the airport includes three remote stands next to the terminal, while stands at the current passenger building will also be used if the need arises. Each of the aircraft parking positions at the new facility includes a Visual Docking Guidance System which gives information to a pilot attempting to park their aircraft. The air bridges have been manufactured by the Spanish company ADELTE.”
