Ljubljana international airport development
New passenger terminal
The capacity of the new terminal will be of 38,000 sq m of passenger facilities, 850 departing and 850 arriving passengers per hour. An IATA level C standard of services is envisaged to ensure the necessary quality for passenger arrivals and departures. The planning took into account both international and domestic regulations and standards for such facilities and equipment. In the new terminal 40 check-in counters will be set up, including some automatic ones.
Aeropolis Ljubljana is a major upscale mixed-use complex on 80 hectares and the future commercial and logistics centre of Ljubljana International Airport. The complex will incorporate a shopping mall, a four-star hotel, office facilities, a cargo and logistics centre and an airport railway station. Aeropolis will radically change the appearance of the current airport. The pace of development will follow the market situation.
- Construction Phase 1 (7 ha)
The first phase of the Aeropolis development incorporates the buildings that can be linked to the existing access road. At the moment, what the airport lacks most is a business-congress centre and night time facilities, which is why construction of the hotel and congress centre is taking priority. In addition to constructing buildings that fall within the framework of airside activities, further enlargement of the logistics park is anticipated.
- Construction Phase 2 (7 ha + 17 ha)
The relocation of the existing access road and the completion of Terminal II will dictate the pace of the expansion in this phase. Along with the increased road traffic capacity a further expansion of the logistics centre is foreseen. The new bus station and a parking garage will be built and initial works in the business park will take off.
- Construction Phase 3 (7 ha + 17 ha + 11 ha)
Further development of Aeropolis will take place in accordance with the anticipated growth of air traffic due to the increase in the volume of transported passengers and cargo. The need for increased capacities on all levels will also dictate the expansion of projects which have already been started; a possible upgrading of the Business Centre, the Business Park will take its final form, and the Logistics Park may also expand significantly.
- Construction Phase 4 (7 ha + 17 ha + 11 ha + 7 ha)
A railway connection will round off the new Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport. Public transport will be organized within the framework of the new communications centre, increased traffic throughput and the accessibility of the airport will be mostly reflected in a further enlargement of the logistics centre.
The number of passengers and cargo doubled within the last decade and the airport is in a process of continuous transformation, becoming an important regional distribution and logistics centre. Significant numbers of passengers and goods from Western Europe pass through the airport on their way to the south-east of the continent and onwards to their destinations in the Far East.
Main national airport, Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport, managed by Aerodrom Ljubljana plc., ended year 2009 with approximately a million and a half passengers. Airport users will remember past few years by the infrastructure improvement, the excellent business performance and radical changes in transport technology that lead to new operations procedures. We put the biggest emphasis to better services for passengers. After recent completion of taxiway extension to the full runway length, at the time being we continue to modernize the airport infrastructure. We expanded the main apron and totally renewed our runways. The first stage of airside expansion comprised a new terminal I, the construction of terminal II is just about to begin. Once completed, the airport will meet the forecast increase in passenger demand but not all the expectations in terms of commercial services the modern airport users expect.
Over the next ten years, Aeropolis Ljubljana, the key development project of Aerodrom Ljubljana and a city in its own right, will be built on 80 ha next to Slovenia's national airport. Located at the strategically important intersection of the fifth and the tenth European transport corridor, this is one of the most ambitious development projects of national importance.
It is essential that beside modern airside operations, airport provides facilities, which shorten routes, save time, an offer space for different commercial activities. A commercial centre that would fill this gap is therefore vital for airport's success.
Proximity to the airport, the number of passengers with substantial purchasing power and its metropolitan atmosphere will make Aeropolis a premium location for doing business.
Located at the strategically important intersection of the V and the X European transport corridor, this is one of the most ambitious development projects of national importance.
Aeropolis Ljubljana is the key development project of Aerodrom Ljubljana plc. Its proposal is to develop the airport's commercial infrastructure and meet the needs for hotel accommodation, office space, commercial premises and logistic services, not currently available at the airport.
Aeropolis aggregates all the characteristics of a promising real estate development project:
- Advantageously located at the intersection of two transport corridors which connect central and SE Europe.
- Located next to the A2 motorway, the approach road to the capital city of Ljubljana; the proximity of the Port of Koper; only a few hours drive away from major business centres in neighboring countries; and lastly, an air link to European commercial and industrial hubs, make Aeropolis an excellent starting point for successful international business.
- The exceptional location, flexible design concept and the current lack of facilities available at the airport, make Aeropolis a prime, relatively low risk investment opportunity.
- Buildings in Aeropolis will be designed according to the most modern principles of profitability, cost-efficiency and sustainability.
- Planned on the principles of modular architecture, buildings in Aeropolis will allow occupiers to develop and shape space according to their needs.
