Italians will expand Mostar Airport
Airports in Italy proceed to form strategic partnership with Mostar International Airport close to Medjugorje. Coordinated by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the plan will enlarge the airport, expand the number of passenger lines, ensure better safety, and educate the staff.
Mostar International Airport is on the brink of a new era, a spokesman of Italy’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said after Italian airport leaders recently went ahead in forming a strategic partnership with the airport 30 kilometers (20 miles) from Medjugorje.
The ministry coordinates the entire process on behalf of Italy.
“In Italy, there is great interest in the airport of Mostar, especially because of Medjugorje. Therefore, the beginning of the negotiations about a strategic partnership means entering a new era of operations for the airport of Mostar” Italian ministry counselor Sladjan Topuzovic tells the Croatian daily Vecernji List..
“There was principal agreement, and hope that things will soon be made concrete” Sladjan Tupozovic further says of the Italian airport leaders’ recent meeting with leaders of the city of Mostar.
The closer cooperation with Italian partners will enlarge the airport, bring many more aircrafts to the runway, and ensure safer operations, partly due to training the airport personel for these new conditions. A development plan will soon be presented to the public, Vecernji List further writes.
