Eindhoven Airport expands terminal with new baggage hall

Eindhoven, 28 January 2016

Eindhoven Airport has started preparatory building work for a new baggage hall which is to be on the ground floor on the right-hand side of the terminal. The first floor will be used for supporting functions, such as office space.

Due to the expected growth of Eindhoven Airport over the coming years, the current baggage system is no longer adequate and the baggage hall is therefore being expanded to house a new system with more than double the capacity. The total gross floor area of the extension will be almost 5000 m2, half of which will be used for the new baggage system. Work on the new baggage hall will begin in the first quarter of 2016 and the new hall is expected to be operational in the second quarter of 2017.

Once the new hall is operational, the current baggage hall area will be used for operational and commercial space accessible to the public.

In order to meet Eindhoven Airport’s sustainability targets, this extension will have the same energy label as the terminal, the A+ label. Features such as led presence detectors, insulated glazing and solar panels will be included in the design.
