In connection with the commencement of renovation work to extend the passenger terminal at Tallinn Airport, the organisation of traffic in front of the terminal will be changing as of 1 November, with car traffic closed on the upper level. Passengers will now enter and exit the terminal building via the doors at the northern end of the upper level and via the doors on the lower level.
The short-term ‘kiss & fly’ parking area will temporarily be transferred to the space in front of the entrance on the lower level. This organisation of traffic will remain in place at least until spring 2017. A scheme of the new traffic arrangements is attached to this press release.
The renovation work being carried out will see the southern end of the terminal building widened and extended, providing more space for security control, a larger area of reception rooms for visitors and a new restaurant with a viewing terrace overlooking the runway. Rooms needed to service the airport will also be constructed.
The public procurement for the design and construction contract for the renovations was won by OÜ Astlanda Ehitus. The contract is valued at more than 5 million euros, with work due for completion by the end of 2017.
