Construction projects at Munich Airport

Building the airport's future 

Since it opened 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, the first buildings at the future LabCampus innovation center are going up. For access to the site, a new transportation node is being developed. At the center of the airport, a new pier is planned for Terminal 1. In addition, the airport is expanding its parking facilities.

Towards the east, the activities are focused around improved transportation links for the airport. A new S-Bahn rail tunnel is being dug in the direction of Schwaigerloh, and several roads are being improved, including the eastern feeder road to the airport.

1. Trades center

To the north of the Real Estate Center, the Trades Center is under construction. After completion in 2019/2020, it will be used by the airport operating company (FMG) and other companies on the airport campus.

2. Logistics Center

The airport is planning to build a central warehouse and logistics center for FMG and several subsidiaries. This will eliminate the need for off-campus rented facilities. Completion is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2020.

3. P43 and P44 car parks

For vacationers, visitors and employees working in the new buildings on AirSite West, the airport will offer parking in two car parks.

4. Budget hotel

Construction work on a third hotel on the airport campus is due to begin in 2020. It will offer budget accommodation in 350 rooms from the end of 2021.

5. New pier

A new pier will be built between Modules A and B in Terminal 1. It will extend 350 meters into the western apron. Preliminary work is under way. The pier is scheduled to go into operation in 2023.

6. P22 parking area

In the central zone, additional parking will be created for passengers and staff. The first 700 spaces will be ready for use in 2020 and an additional 1,700 spaces in 2021.

7. Eastern apron expansion

The eastern apron is currently being extended by a total area of 180,000 square metres - equivalent to around 25 football pitches. The construction site is in the vicinity of the new S-Bahn tunnel. Anyone driving over the Südring in the direction of Erdinger Allee will be guided directly around the construction fence.

8. Audi

The new Audi Brand Experience Center, designed to stringent "passive building" specifications, and including a public charging station for electric vehicles, opened in 2019.

9. Office building

Next to the Airport Academy (9.), an office building with approximately 30,000 square meters of floor space is planned for the LabCampus.

10. Airport Academy

The building for the airport's training center will have 14,500 square meters of floor space. Completion is scheduled for the third quarter of 2020.
