✈Sarajevo Int. Airport: Improvement of the terminal and visual identity

Improving the visual identity is one of the important steps on the way of future development of Sarajevo International Airport, which in recent months has been continuously working on the improvement of the entire business and rising the level of services for all its customers.
With recently finished, reorganization of the space on the first floor of the main terminal, use of the terminal space is optimized to a maximum, giving more space to all arriving passengers. 
Two new luggage belts were installed, and whole luggage pick up area has been reorganized to provide more space and easier passengers movement. Significant improvement is done in the area of the movement of disabled passengers from check in desks, to boarding gates. 
With last years improvements and reorganization of the second floor, flow and comfort of passengers in rush hours is significantly improved. 
Even with all the new work to improve better use of the terminal space, Sarajevo International Airport terminal will reach its capacity maximum next year. Initially, terminal building was designed to handle 800.000 passengers, but with all the improvements, that number now is 1 million passengers per year. One million mark is expected to be reached in the year 2018. 
With Bosnia and Herzegovina approaching European Union membership, the airport will need to separate passengers from Schengen area countries, from the rest of passengers. Current terminal building is way too small for any additional separations of space or for adding new gates . Most likely new larger terminal building will be built in the near future.

In the coming period  it is planned to intensify activities in the direction of improving the visual identity of Sarajevo airport in accordance with high international standards. These activities are designed to ensure recognition and performance of this company, not only in Bosnia-Herzegovina, but worldwide.
