The modernization of Gorna Oryahovitsa airport will include a long runway from 2024. And this will happen thanks to investments in the amount of 13.3 million BGN. Local media reported this, quoting the Minister of Transport, Georgi Gvozdeykov.
Until now, the concession has already invested BGN 5,960,000 in the main airport.
The Municipality of Gorna Oryahovitsa gave a “green light” for the modernization of the Gorna Oryahovitsa airport and the installation of a modern navigation system. The construction permits from the Municipality have already been issued for the implementation of the Air Traffic Management (ATM) project, the Mayor Eng. Dobromir Dobrev said.
The repair of the Gorna Oryahovitsa airport near Veliko Tarnovo is expected to begin in September. The renovation of the smallest international airport in Bulgaria was due to start in the summer, but because of the elaboration of a detailed DDP, the many co-owners of the parcels in the area and the expropriation procedures, the repair was delayed, explained the administration.
