THE NEW international terminal of Milas airport in Bodrum is due to be completed in spring 2012.
The construction works started in 2009 with Turkish sub-contractors, however in February 2011 all the rights to complete the works were overtaken by a major Italian construction company “Astaldi”.
The new terminal with the area of 95,000 sqm will have 9 boarding bridges in total with the one that will be able to accept large jumbo planes catering with two separate gate entrances.
There will be 66 check-in desks, high tech security systems, Led information screens, baggage handling system as well as underground parking for 750 cars.
The terminal will be able to accept annually up to 5 million passengers and serve about 40 different destinations, which means a significant increase in passenger traffic.
The existing terminals will continue operating for domestic flights.
In 2010 the airport served more than 25 thousand domestic and international flights and received about 3 million passengers, most of them were from Turkey, Britain, Germany and Russia.
