Lithuanian Airports has selected Eikos Statyba as the construction contractor for Vilnius Airport’s new passenger departure terminal project.

Under the €41.5m ($41.5m) contract, Eikos Statyba will build the terminal between the VIP terminal with a conference centre, as well as the old passenger terminal.

The new departure terminal will span more than 14,000m² and be built according to A++ energy-efficient standards.

Featuring two floors, the ground floor will have a self-service check-in area, where travellers can complete flight and luggage check-ins.

The building will also have technical areas such as baggage screening and sorting, as well as engineering systems.

In addition, it will have common public spaces, cafes, commercial areas and airline offices.

The project scope also includes the redevelopment of 34,000m² of the airport’s access space. This is expected to be completed by the end of 2024.

The total area of Vilnius Airport’s terminal will expand by one-third and the passenger capacity growth will be more than doubled once the project is completed.

Eikos Statyba was previously awarded the contract, but it was not signed at the time due to geopolitical issues.

Eikos Statyba head Almantas Čebanauskas said: “We appreciate the public sector’s ability to react quickly and flexibly in a changing geopolitical and economic situation, and to prioritise the development of such important national infrastructure projects regardless of the current situation.

“We believe that the experience gained in the construction of complex structures, including our already completed Vilnius Airport VIP terminal construction project, will significantly contribute to the successful implementation of the new terminal construction.”

Čebanauskas added that the terminal’s construction ‘sets a new quality bar for infrastructure’ and would deliver a return on investment within 10-15 years.

In July last year, Lithuanian Airports launched a tender to lease the existing fuel storage depots at Vilnius and Palanga airports.
