Future international airports[edit]

  • Užice-Ponikve Airport is currently under reconstruction. After the reconstruction, it is expected to have the status of an international airport. The management of Užice-Ponikve Airport confirmed interest of low cost airlines, scheduled and charter airlines. The reconstruction is expected to be completed by the second quarter of 2009.
  • Kraljevo-Morava Airport is under heavy reconstruction as well. Its airport terminal building was completed in 2012. A new control tower has been built as well with the investments of €3.5 million, replacing the previously NATO-bombed control tower. Once entirely completed, the airport will be open for public and cargo flights.
  • There is some construction/reconstruction going on at the Zrenjanin Airport as well. The first phase, which is almost complete, is to build a hangar, a terminal and an aircraft parking area. The second phase is to build concrete/asphalt runway 1,800 metres long and 50 metres wide. Once again, with reconstruction, this airport will also get an international airport status.

Airports requested for public use[edit]

  • In April 2006, Kovin Airport asked for it to be used for public use, instead of military. The government will most likely accept the move.
  • Sombor Airport is currently used by the military, but there is an interest of foreign investors to be also used as a public one, mostly by tourists.

Airports under reconstruction[edit]

  • Vršac Airport, one of the busiest sport airports in Serbia, is being planned for reconstruction. The current runway needs to be lengthened by 1,800 m. The width will also be increased by 30 m. What also needs to be done is the strengthening of the whole construction of the runway, taxiway and terminal platform, according to the 30 tonnes of airplane weight. Vršac Airport also has a pilot training academy.
  • Bor Airport is also getting reconstructed. The runway will be modified and equipment will be brought for use in the terminal. Due to Belgrade Airport's terminal 1 being renovated, its equipment is to be relocated to Bor Airport.

Notes and references[edit]

Notes:

a. ^ Kosovo is the subject of a territorial dispute between the Republic of Kosovo and the Republic of Serbia. The Republic of Kosovo unilaterally declared independence on 17 February 2008, but Serbia continues to claim it as part of its own sovereign territory. The two governments began to normalise relations in 2013, as part of the Brussels Agreement. Kosovo has been recognised as an independent state by 109 out of 193 United Nations member states.
