Passenger Terminal to be extended
Frankfurt-Hahn Airport, 6th July 2001. The passenger terminal at Frankfurt-Hahn Airport is to be extended by an area of about 4,200 square metres, i.e. by more than double. The excavation works were started this week.
Since the terminal was brought into operation in April 2000, the average daily throughput of passengers at Frankfurt-Hahn Airport has roughly doubled. Passengers in the terminal currently number about 1,200 per day. It was designed for a capacity of 400,000 passengers per year and is thus reaching the limit of its capacity. With the extension, the terminal will have a capacity of 1.2 million passengers.
The extension of the terminal will take place on two storeys. The arrivals area with the arrivals hall and baggage reclaim will in the future be moved to Level 1 of the new building. The present area will then be entirely available for departures. Seven additional counters will be built in the check-in area. The present baggage reclaim area will be converted to a fourth departure gate.
The public areas on Level 2 will be reached from the new arrivals hall by two flights of light steel stairs. Shops, a bistro and a restaurant will offer the increasing number of visitors and passengers an appealing choice. A visitor terrace will allow a view directly onto the apron.
A three-storey office block will connect with the arrivals area. Completion of the extension is planned for the beginning of 2002.
