Runway to a bright future.

Oradea International Airport is situated in northwestern Romania, close to the Hungarian border. The vicinity to the European route E60 and the future Transylvanian Motorway, as well as Bihor County's high tourist potential have led to a massive growth of passengers and cargo traffic over the past years.

In order to meet the increasing requirements, PORR was assigned the enlargement and modernisation of Oradea Airport. The project included the following tasks:

  • Extension of the existing runway by 300m at each end
  • A newly built runway with a length of 2.100m and a width of 45m, constructed from concrete
  • Construction of new taxiways (Alpha 144.5m and Bravo 750.0m), as well as a new apron for six airplanes
  • Renovation of the dewatering and drainage system, airfield lighting and installing a new power supply

The most challenging part of this project definitely was the short construction period. Airport operation was only closed for 59 days and all the main works had to be finalised during this time frame. PORR finished all procedures on time and to the full satisfaction of the customer.
