The terminal‘s design intends for construction to be carried out in three sections flexibly aligned to capacity requirements. In the first construction phase, the main building with arrival and departure levels as well as the marketplace, lounges and an automated baggage handling system will be built. In addition, the two piers H (Schengen) and J (Non-Schengen), with lengths of 400 and 600 meters respectively, will be built.
The second construction phase will see Pier G realized as a fully-fledged and modern terminal building which will be integrated into Terminal 3. At a later date and depending on demand, this third pier can be expanded by about 200 meters.
Thanks to the modular and flexible architecture, Fraport can realize the new terminal according to actual capacity requirements. Construction work on Pier G is already well advanced. This gives Fraport the flexibility to put it into operation earlier, if necessary, while the much more complex main terminal building with piers H and J is still under construction.
