Icelandic national airport operator Isavia and Byggingafélagið Hyrna have signed an agreement for the construction of an extension to the terminal at Akureyri Airport. The contract amount for the project is ISK 810,5 million (USD 6,2 million, EUR 5,5 million, rates by CB of Iceland on 28.12.21). Sigrún Björk Jakobsdóttir, Managing Director of Isavia Domestic Airports, and Örn Jóhannsson, Managing Director of Hyrna, signed the agreement at the terminal at Akureyri Airport today.
The work plan assumes that construction will begin at the end of March next year and will be completed at the beginning of August 2023. The project is divided into three phases. The first concerns a new extension to the terminal. In the second phase, the terminal’s current arrival area will be rebuilt and a new check-in area is planned. A new awning and a truck shed will then also be built with associated asphalting. In the third and final phase, the existing check-in areas and office areas will be rebuilt.
“It is very gratifying to take this next and important step in the development of Akureyri Airport,” says Sigrún Björk Jakobsdóttir, Managing Director of Isavia Domestic Airports. “This is a large project, more specifically this 1,100 square meter extension to the airport and at the same time improved facilities for the police, customs, duty free shop and restaurant. The service to passengers and airlines is greatly improved and we look forward to taking this change and improving the terminal in the summer of 2023. “
“We at Hyrna are very excited to start working on this important project,” says Örn Jóhannsson, managing director of Byggingafélag Hyrna. “A work plan is in place and our people are ready to put everything in motion. It is a great pleasure to take part in launching this project here today. This is one of my last projects at Hyrna now that I am retiring at the turn of the year after more than five decades of work. It will be gratifying to see this expansion rise. “
