Once completed the proposed 175,000 sqm. terminal will serve a total of 26,5 million international and domestic passengers, and the existing terminal will be given over exclusively to pilgrim traffic. Operational flexibility and efficiency, high level of passenger comfort, and adaptability to future needs are at the heart of GMW concept design. The simple and yet dynamic form of the proposed terminal with a strong visual identity clearly expresses the three main functions of an international terminal; the main processing space for the passengers, commercial areas and the airside lounges. The linear arrangement of spaces within the pier provide flexible use of a total number of 28 gates.
