The modernised apron 2 has started operating at Riga Airport. It is mainly intended for servicing business aviation aircraft.
Apron 2 is located opposite the FBO RIGA business aviation terminal. As part of the upgrading process, it has been supplemented with an extension with more than 12 000 square metres of concrete and asphalt covering; two new flexible aircraft stands that can accommodate smaller class or one class C aircraft have been created.
As a result, the total number of aircraft stands on apron 2 has increased to six, three of which are located in the immediate vicinity of the business terminal, enabling passengers to reach the terminal on foot quickly and easily.
As part of the project, the Airport also modernised part of the current apron 2, engineering networks and lighting system. The work was carried out by ACB, a joint stock company selected in an open tender procedure. The total cost of the project is 2.5 million euros and it is one of the investment projects that Riga Airport is implementing this year in order to diversify its business and increase competitiveness, using the opportunities provided by the pandemic to carry out intensive construction works in the Airport area.
