Building a new extension to Edinburgh Airport’s terminal building is the start of an £80 million investment plan to help the airport handle forecasted record number of passengers.
The expansion is part of the airport’s £220m+ capital investment programme to support growth and maintain operational standards over the next five years.
The expansion is due to be completed by summer 2018 and will see the South East Pier extended to create new boarding gates and seating areas between gates 13 and 14.
Designed to support forecasted growth of up to 16.5million passengers in 2021 and beyond, it will provide:
- Extended immigration, customs and international reclaim facilities
- A new home for our domestic reclaim hall, enabling the expansion of our baggage hall into the current domestic reclaim area
- New retail opportunities, food and beverage options, toilets, lettable property and office space, VIP lounges, and retail storage
- 6 new gates, gate seating areas and connectivity via a series of fixed links, stair nodes and air bridges to the new stands
