Construction projects at Munich Airport

Building the airport's future 

Since its opening in 1992, Munich Airport has expanded rapidly – and the journey continues: Visitors to the airport these days are greeted by the sight of busy work crews, excavation equipment and cranes.

On the AirSite West site, new buildings at the future LabCampus innovation center are going up. For access to the site, a new transportation node has been developed. At the center of the airport, a new pier for Terminal 1 is being built. In addition, the airport is expanding its parking facilities.

Next to the LabCampus office building (building on the left), the new AirportAcademy (building on the right) is currently under construction.

7. Serviced Apartments

Planning is currently underway for a building with serviced flats on LabCampus. It comprises around 230 one- and two-room flats with a size between 26 and 39 square metres. The Serviced Apartments will enable guests who work on the campus on a project-related basis to stay for a short or long period.

The vacant area to the right of the new AirportAcademy (building on the right) and the LabCampus office building (building on the left) will one day be home to the serviced apartments.
