Isavia Regional Airports Reaches an Agreement with Hyrna on the Expansion of the Terminal at Akureyri Airport
Isavia Regional Airports and construction company Hyrna have signed an agreement for the construction of an extension to the terminal at Akureyri Airport. The agreement amount for the project is ISK 810.5 million. Sigrún Björk Jakobsdóttir, CEO of Isavia Regional Airports, and Örn Jóhannsson, Managing Director of Hyrna, signed the agreement in the terminal at Akureyri Airport.
According to the project schedule, the construction work will commence at the end of March 2022 and will be completed at the beginning of August 2023. The project is divided into three phases. The first concerns a new extension to the terminal. In the second phase, the terminal's current arrival area will be rebuilt and a new check-in area is planned. A new awning and a luggage truck shed will then also be built with associated asphalting. In the third and final phase, the existing check-in areas and office areas will be rebuilt.
"It is very gratifying to take this next and important step in the development of Akureyri Airport," says Sigrún Björk Jakobsdóttir, Managing Director of Isavia Regional Airports. "This is a large project, more specifically it is a 1,100 square meter extension to the airport terminal and at the same time improved facilities for the police, customs, duty free shops and a restaurant. The service to passengers and airlines will be greatly improved and we look forward to start using this altered and improved terminal in the late summer of 2023."
“At Hyrna, we are very excited to start working on this important project," says Örn Jóhannsson, Managing Director of Hyrna.” A project schedule is in place and our team is ready to put everything in motion. It is a great pleasure to take part in launching this project here today. This is one of my last projects at Hyrna, now that I am retiring at the end of the year after more than five decades of work. It will be gratifying to see this expansion project become a reality."
