Zagreb Airport Ltd.

Zagreb Airport Ltd.

In 1966 a new passenger terminal of 5.000 sqm was built, the apron was extended to 60.000 sqm and modern administrative airport headquarters were built along with control tower for the needs of Regional Air Traffic Control as well as a whole range of other buildings and service facilities.

In the following years the air transport over Zagreb Airport grew dynamically. New equipment was introduced to operate the existing volume of traffic. New airport maintenance buildings was erected - a new technical base and a technical warehouse, cargo loaders, mobile baggage loading equipment, etc.

In 1974 Zagreb Airport was reconstructed. The runway was extended to 3.250 m, the equipment and the radio-navigational units were modernized.

During these years Zagreb was linked to 20 largest European cities.

After almost two years of continuous work, we can declare that Zagreb Airport finally has a defined long-term development plan, so called Master Plan, up to year 2030. Such plan has become inevitable, since traffic transport grows very fast and Croatia as a young country wants to have its safe position in the European traffic net.
