Project: Terminal 1 expansion

A better quality for our passengers

Terminal 1 at Munich Airport is going to be expanded with the addition of a new pier and a central building complex. This leads to a better quality for the passengers per year. © sop – J.S.K c/o BG SSF – SPI – sop – J.S.K. © sop – J.S.K c/o BG SSF – SPI – sop – J.S.K

New spaces with a total area of 80,000 square meters

"The planned expansion is comparable to the construction of an entire new airport. It will bring Terminal 1 right up to date," said Dr. Markus Söder, the Bavarian minister of finance and the chairman of Munich Airport's supervisory board, at the airport's press center on November 18, 2016. He was joined there by Munich Airport CEO Dr. Michael Kerkloh, Thomas Weyer, the airport's CFO and head of infrastructure, and Andrea Gebbeken, the managing director in charge of commercial and security. They presented the initial planning for the expansion project, which Söder said will be "crucial to Bavaria's economic future."

After completion of the project, the baggage claim area and departure gates for non-pierside aircraft will be located on Level 03. Level 04 will be connected to the existing terminal at Module B, with its core area containing the central security and passport control facilities and a marketplace with high-quality dining and retail offerings. The departure gates, inside the pier, will also be on this level.

Level 05 will serve to "channel" arriving passengers, depending on whether they are headed for the security screening for connecting passengers on that level or down to the baggage claim area. This level will also have attractively designed and spacious lounge areas.

The expansion project, including the affected arrival areas in the existing Module B, will have a total area of about 80,000 square meters. The general planning will be carried out by the consortium of engineering firms and architects "SSF Ingenieure AG / Schüßler-Plan Ingenieurgesellschaft mbH / JSK Architkci Sp. z o o, Warschau / sop Architekten GmbH".

  • The new pier will be linked to the existing A and B modules of Terminal 1 and will extend 320 meters into the airport's western apron. The earliest possible completion date is 2022. It will have stands to handle up to 12 aircraft, including two Airbus A380 superjumbos
  • The overall architectural design is based on a three-level structure consisting of a core adjoining the existing Terminal 1 and a pier. © sop – J.S.K c/o BG SSF – SPI – sop – J.S.K

Self-financed expansion

"With the expansion of Terminal 1 we are taking an important step to secure the future of our airport. For the airlines already operating here, we are opening up long-term growth perspectives while creating space for new airlines that want to offer flights to and from Munich in the future," said airport CEO Michael Kerkloh at the project presentation.

After in-depth planning and a decision on the project by the airport's governing bodies, the first construction work on the apron could begin in 2018. According to initial estimates, the project will cost a total of 400 million euros, which Munich Airport will finance with its own resources.
