Sarajevo Airport Overhaul Starts with Demolition of Old Terminal

Demolition of the Sarajevo airport’s Terminal A, built in the sixties, started on Tuesday to make room for expanding the Terminal B. The works are part of an overhaul of the SJJ.

“The Terminal A was used for commercial traffic from 1969 to 1992 and the onset of the Bosnian war,” said the SJJ spokesperson Sanja Bagarić Arnaut.

“When the Terminal B was built, (the Terminal A) was used as the airport’s office space and the restaurant for passengers was in it.”

Ahead of the demolition, some 120 employees of the airport were moved to a temporary work space.

“The Terminal A equipment, including the kitchen and the HVAC and audio-video systems, were used in the temporary buildings to cut the costs,” the spokesperson said.

The demolition works should be completed by the end of the year.
