City of Nis allocated 35 million dinars, while the rest of the funds were provided by Nis Airport itself. “Next week, there will be 2 more passenger and baggage check-in counters installed and in this way, theairport staff will be able to serve a larger number of passengers in less time, because now, when we have 9 regular lines, we need to reduce crowds and waiting in lines. We will continue to invest next year. A new power supply unit will be purchased for the supply of airplanes, as well as X-rays to check luggage, which will also ensure safety at the airport at a much higher level. The airport is important not only for Nis but for the development of the entire southeastern Serbia and our strategic commitment is further development of air transport and investment in modernization of the airport, “the Mayor concluded.
