The Serbian Capital’s Nikola Tesla Airport witnessed the conclusion of its renovation turned innovation project. Indeed, they recently receive Airport Health Accreditation (AHA) from the Airport Council International (ACI) and complemented that with a plethora of new restaurants and duty free shops, as well as glitzy lighting, wall art and furniture.
The Investment in Full
The overall investment took five months to complete at a cost of €2 million. It will ensure that post-passport control, passengers will have a seamless experience throughout their duration in the airport. There are exclusive relaxation and gaming zones, family friendly areas near Gates A5 and A6, and walk-through duty free shops covering 876m2.
WI-FI is now available across the breadth of the passenger terminal, on an unlimited basis for both business and leisure passengers. The latest trending video games can be played without incurring costs for such an interactive experience.
The redesigning initiatives of the aforementioned services were driven by the Airport’s parent company, VINCI, who oversee the operations of 45 airports worldwide. As such, Nikola Tesla Airport is in line with VINCI’s best practices.
In relation to obtaining AHA, the CEO of Belgrade Airport, Francois Berisot, stated:
“We have always been fully dedicated to making passenger protection and safety our priority, which is crucial nowadays, more than ever. This accreditation shows our commitment to maintaining safe operations, and can reassure the travelling public that all of the necessary prevention measures at the airport are in place.”
Passengers can now be assured of a Covid-19 compliant environment, with luxury and comfort remaining at the forefront of the epicentre of Belgrade’s commercial flight operations. Furthermore, it appears that Norwegian Air may start operating flights to Belgrade from 05-June-2021, and hence the timely manner of Nikola Tesla Airport’s upgrades.
