Skonto Būve held a rafter raising ceremony at Riga International Airport, which is currently undergoing the construction of a new terminal. Along with the completion of the frame construction, the new building has now reached its highest point.

Besides the frame construction, the monolithic reinforced concrete covering has been completed as well. The façade has been finished for half of the building, and the arrangement of utilities is under the way.

The 1st phase in the airport's terminal development will provide the expansion of the non-Schengen area and four additional boarding sectors, which will improve the quality of the services provided by the airport. After its completion, the new terminal building will be able to service larger aircraft, thus increasing the capacity of the airport.
