22-Feb-2011 12:05 PM

Germany's Munich Airport and Lufthansa announced (21-Feb-201) details of the new Terminal 2 satellite facility at Munich Airport.  The construction will increase capacity by 11 million passengers p/a which "puts us in the order of magnitude of today's Frankfurt Airport". The construction of Terminal 2 marked the first time that an airline and an airport operating company jointly assumed entrepreneurial responsibility for designing, building and operating a passenger handling facility of this kind, according to the companies. Terminal 2, which opened in 2003 and was specifically designed to handle the hub traffic of Lufthansa and its partners, will reach its capacity limit of 25 million passengers in 2011. As in the original Terminal 2 development, the investment costs of EIR650 million  for the new building will be shared by FMG and Lufthansa on a 60:40 basis. The architectural firm handling the general planning of the satellite will be the Koch + Partner, which already performed this function in the Terminal 2 project. [more]
