Terminal 2 Satellite at Munich

THE MUNICH Airport and Lufthansa boards have given the green light to start building the new Terminal 2 satellite facility at Munich Airport in Germany.  “We are gaining handling capacity for an additional 11 million passengers a year, which puts us in the order of magnitude of today’s Frankfurt Airport,” said Dr Michael Kerkloh, the CEO of Munich Airport.  “This will enable us to maintain the high standards of quality achieved by our airport today as a connecting hub even with the anticipated traffic volume in the future.”
The construction of the Terminal 2 satellite has marked the first time that an airline and an airport operating company have jointly assumed entrepreneurial responsibility for designing, building and operating a passenger handling facility of this kind.
