Slovakia's Bratislava Airport launched (13-Jul-2012) into operations the second part of its new terminal building with the opening of the Arrivals Terminal. The construction of the new 45,000sqm terminal was divided into two phases, in line with the airport development plan, adopted by the Slovak Government in order to allow for continuous operation at the airport. After 16 months of construction works between 2009 and 2010, the first part of the new terminal building was ceremonially launched into operations on 09-Jun-2010. Subsequently, the original Departures Terminal from 1970 was demolished and the new section – the arrivals part of the building was completed and now opened. The general supplier of the construction of the new Terminal building was ZIPP Bratislava, who was awarded the public tender for this project in 2008. The costs incurred in the construction of this second part of the new terminal building totalled EUR46.6 million, with the financing coming from the airport’s own resources, namely from aviation and non-aviation revenues and external financing.

The total known global investment on airport projects continues to grow, and hovers close to the USD1 trillion mark; and with Asia Pacific the overall leader.
There are, however, anomalies, with some regions witnessing many projects but small investment figures, and vice versa. This report attempts to explain those anomalies while offering a breakdown of the biggest projects in each region.
