Vilnius Airport (VNO) in Lithuania has launched an international tender, seeking a contractor to build a new departures terminal at the northern part of the airport.

The new two-storey departures terminal will be located between the existing departures and VIP terminal and a conference centre.

It will feature check-in counters on the ground floor while the departure and arrival gates will be built on the second floor.

The airport also aims to improve the connectivity to the airport and will simultaneously execute other works such as creating a more efficient transport system.

The new passenger departures terminal will be located between the existing departures and the VIP terminal and conference centre.

Baggage screening and sorting facilities, as well as rooms for engineering systems, will be located in the eastern part of the building.

The new terminal will have two new airbridges through which passengers can board directly into the aeroplane. It will be connected to the existing terminal by a spacious walkway.

Additionally, the building will comprise common public spaces, cafes and airline offices.

Upon completion of the new terminal, an additional space of 14.4 thousand square metres will be added, thereby increasing passenger throughput from 1,200 passengers per hour to 2,400.

Lithuanian Airports project management head Arnas Dūmanas said: “The new building will be of A ++ energy class. Sustainable construction leads to better operational parameters, greater long-term returns, responsible approach to the environment and human health.

“Our goal is to ensure that the new terminal building is BREEAM Good certified. The airport is an unconventional place that requires special safety and attention. For this reason, the relevant conditions are set for the construction contractor.”

Last December, Lithuania’s Vilnius Airport announced that the modernisation of its two aircraft taxiways in the southern part of the aerodrome has been completed.

The revamp will enhance the aircraft’s operational safety, support faster taxiing, as well as lower fuel consumption and emissions.
