Belgrade’s Nikola Tesla airport has completed works on the enhancement and modernization of the entire central area of its boarding level, with the work completed in cooperation with Dufry, the largest lessee at the airport.
The new area is entered immediately after passport control and includes an expanded and modernized duty-free shop, followed by ‘Tesla Square’ where passengers are offered a relaxation zone, a new restaurant, a coffee shop and a gaming zone. The larger and centralized duty-free shop (covering 876m2 ) has been created according to a ‘walk through” concept, and there is a new area for parents and children next to gates A5 and A6.
Across the entire terminal, passengers can now also access free and unlimited wi-fi for their personal and business purposes, a standard for all airports in the Vinci Airports group. The refreshed interior has also been equipped with new lighting and furniture, including new floor coverings.
The reconstruction works of the area lasted five months, as part of the wider transformation plan for the airport. The alterations were carried out simultaneously with ongoing major works on the modernization and expansion of the airport’s capacity, with precautionary measures in place to avoid disruptions to passenger flow.
The concept is designed to provide passengers with greater comfort and quality offers and services, in line with the best practices of its parent company, Vinci Airports, which operates at 45 airports around the world.
Airport Council International (ACI) recently granted Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport Airport Health Accreditation (AHA), after a complete evaluation of the implemented prevention and sanitary measures put in place at the airport to counter the Covid-19 pandemic.
