Skonto Būvewill carry out the 5th round of the Riga International Airport passenger terminal expansion – construction of the “Northern Gateway”.

The 5th round of expansion – Northern Gateway with bridges for passenger boarding, envisages the construction of a two-storey (214 m long and 28 m wide) building with 23 gates for various types of aircrafts. The building is planned to be built about 240 m away from the current gateway, as well as with a gallery structure that will connect it to the current terminal building complex.

This project is planned to be done in two construction rounds. In the 1st round – construction of the constructive part, exterior finish and the territory part of the building will be done, as well as interior works and adjustments of the gallery building for temporary functioning for airport purposes. After this round it is planned to put the building into operation and to start passenger servicing. In the 2nd round the exterior finish works of the building will be carried out.

The main functions of the station will be servicing the departing and arriving passengers – the provision of the boarding and disembarkation process.

The 5th round of the Airport terminal development foresees the non-Schengen zone expansion and four new boarding sectors.
