The air traffic equipment and facilities of the airport have been heavily modernised following investments by Tirana International Airport SHPK, a consortium led by HochtiefAirport. Hochtief assumed management of the airport on 23 April 2005, for a 20-year concession period.
The concession included the construction of a completely new passenger terminal and various infrastructure improvements, among them the construction of a new access road, new parking lots, and a bridge over the old airport access road. The expansion resulted in an increased number of passengers per annum, estimated at 1.5M passengers for 2009. The number of passengers effectively increased to more than 1.5M in 2010. The Terminal building and its second expansion, the Cargo building, its landscaping and carpark canopies was designed by Malaysian Architect Hin Tan of Hintan Associates.
