This week, Lithuanian Airports have signed a contract with a Latvian construction company A.C.B. The latter plans to reconstruct, already in the autumn of this year, Palanga Airport runway, also the taxiway and some parts of the apron of the airport. This company already has experience in reconstructing Vilnius Airport runway in 2017. The company, which won the public procurement contract, will perform all contract work for 13.6 million euros (exclusive of VAT).

Upgrading of not only the runway but also of the taxiway and major parts of the apron is planned during the reconstruction works of Palanga Airport. In the autumn, the operation of the airport will be suspended for up to 45 days, which is the shortest period required for the work to be done. As the currently available data shows, the period of the main works will cover September-October of this year.

“For us, this is the second large-scale airport infrastructure reconstruction project in Lithuania, as AS A.C.B. has already executed a technologically similar project at Vilnius Airport in 2017, which is also under the management of Lithuanian Airports. As part of this project A.C.B. provided more than 150,000 m2 of runway pavement reconstruction within 35 days. The experience gained will allow AS A.C.B. to execute the project at Palanga airport according to the schedule, set by the customer, and observing all the technical an quality requirements”, says Armands Sviķis, the chief operational manager of AS A.C.B.

Palanga Airport runway was last reconstructed in 2007. According to the representatives of Lithuanian Airports, upgrading of the infrastructure of the coastal region airport was necessary due to the infrastructure wear and tear and challenges related to aviation security requirements. Therefore, the preparatory and design work for this upgrade was started already few years ago.
