The Government of RS approved yesterday the allocation of BAM 1.6 million for the Trebinje airport project documentation; the airport is expected to be operational next year.
As the PM of RS Milorad Dodik said, building an airport in Trebinje is one of the strategic projects of his government. He expects a design project to be over in the spring of 2010. The Government plans to seek a strategic partner for this project.
A future concession-holder will be expected to build the runway and accompanying facilities, and create conditions for normal operation, transport minister Cubrilovic said. Airport Director Zoran Okilj said the airport will have capacity for 250,000 passengers a year in the initial stage, and the number will grow to one million by the time the project is finalized. Trebilje will welcome all low-tariff operators, he said.
