In order to connect the new terminal to the existing airport infrastructure, the baggage transport system and the passenger transfer system “Sky Line” will be extended. The first phase also includes the construction of open spaces, roads and gate facilities around Terminal 3 as well as an additional motorway junction. The second construction phase will be started at a later time as required.
Apart from expanding the airport capacity, the new terminal design also aims at improving energy efficiency and reducing CO2 emissions. The technical concept for the building will completely avoid the use of fossile energy carriers or external heating energy.
Fraport currently plans to commission the first section of Terminal 3 in 2022 at the latest, after having completed a comprehensive trial run and successful functional tests.
