As part of the draft Master Plan, Birmingham Airport is building a terminal extension to provide a larger departure lounge with glazed mezzanine, and improved baggage sortation facilities. In addition to the terminal extension, an enhanced check-in area is also being provided. This investment will deliver a vastly improved experience for our passengers.
The extension to the terminal will expand the size of our current departure lounge in the north terminal by almost 40%. This will create space, maximise natural light and transform it into a bright, modern and relaxing place for passengers. Essential facilities such as toilets, public seating and circulation space will be significantly increased. In addition there will be a range of expanded retail facilities and a glazed mezzanine floor where passengers can enjoy an improved range of bars and restaurants.
The extension also allows for improvements to our back of house baggage sortation systems generating significantly improved operational efficiency. On the ground floor, the enlarged check in area will feel more spacious and will provide passengers with the latest technology to speed up check-in and deliver great service.
