Tivat – The management of the airport Tivat began the preparations for the announcement of the open competition for the projecting of the widening of the airport platform for reception and service of the planes.
On the existing platform there are seven parking positions for planes, of which two are for big jumbo jets, that is, the planes of “D” category. The basic motive for the widening of the surface of the platform is provision of the additional parking positions for reception and service of the small business planes, from the segment of the so-called general, that is, business aviation. The need for widening of the capacities was especially confirmed this summer when up to 11 small business planes landed in one day on the runway of the Tivat airport, which had to deny the requests for landing of those planes because of the lack of space.
– We are planning to extend the platform in two phases for another 156 meters towards the south east, and to maintain the existing width of the runway. With that in the first phase we would get additional 4 parking positions for the biggest planes from the segment of the business aviation, with the wingspan of 20m, while after the termination of the second phase, on a new part of the platform at one time we could receive between 8 and 10 smaller planes – said the director of airports Ranko Boskovic.
DONATION OF SOUTH COREA
In the beginning of the following month, said Boskovic, the delegation of South Corea will come to Tivat, which has announced a donation of million of dollars for a continuation of modernization of the most circulated Montenegrin airport.
– It is certain that the Coreans will finance the implementation of the FDIS, that is, a display system for showing of the information about flights, and the rest of the money will probably be invested in the continuation of equipping of the airport for the night flying and for the flying in the conditions of reduced visibility – pointed out Boskovic, adding that the PE “Airports of Montenegro” is preparing the project of construction of new parking spaces for cars in Tivat airport, as well as the reconstruction of the crossroad of the airport approaching road and Adriatic highway.
