The following concept images will illustrate how the integrated airport terminal can enhance the overall journey experience.
The major works programme will see an extension to the existing terminal building with the construction of a mezzanine floor to create a new central security search area and airside departures lounge. Access to this 2,300 square-metre extension from the ground floor check-in area will be via lifts, escalators and stairs to the atrium. This will lead into a bright and spacious open plan retail and catering offering with seating directly overlooking the aircraft stands. The first phase of the works programme, which will start in spring 2020 will see the construction of a new two-storey passenger pier and realignment of aircraft stands. This will eventually see a separation of both departing and arriving passengers.
The new arrivals facility, including baggage reclaim together with customs and immigration, will be created on the ground floor of the existing terminal, which currently sites the airside departures lounge.
The customer relations desk will also be located on the ground floor and will be available to assist both arriving and departing passengers.
