Passenger Terminal Today - Elizabeth Baker
As part of its ongoing terminal development project, Riga Airport in Latvia released the qualification requirements for construction suppliers to potential applicants in September 2023.
The new terminal building of Riga Airport will feature a modern passenger check-in hall, security and border control area, shops and cafes, as well as a baggage handling facility. It will also have new access roads for private and public transportation, a multistory car park and a connection to the Rail Baltica station, which together form stage 6 of the airport’s development. The total construction will exceed 45,000m2, with the investments estimated to total approximately €167m (US$177m).
PTW sat down with Laila Odina, CEO of Riga Airport, to find out more about the project and how exactly the terminal is expected to reshape not only the airport but also its passenger experience.
