KING TO OPEN NEW MALAGA TERMINAL

Print | Send to a friend

By Staff Reporter / 2010-02-04 14:48:47

The new terminal 3 at Malaga Airport is attracting a lot of media interest, especially as King Juan Carlos has been invited to open it on Monday March 15th, the date the new facility should begin operations. Five hundred guests will be invited to the opening, with top politicians, diplomats and others from the world of aviation, including the Minister of Development Jose Blanco, the President of Andalucia José Antonio Griñán, and the mayor of the city Francisco de la Torre. 

The ceremony will be a celebration of four years’ work to finish the terminal. 
The new terminal will be able to handle 7,500 suitcases an hour, using an automatic system, and as many as 9,000 passengers will be able to use the terminal every hour, which is double the current capacity. 

There will be 86 check-in desks and 20 boarding gates, allowing for 12 planes to ‘finger link’ directly.  However for those passenger numbers to be reached the second runway will have to be in operation and that is not expected until next year. 
This will meant the terminal will be the fourth biggest in the whole of Spain, and one with the most modern installations. 

It will have a glass façade which will be 25 metres high and 225 metres long, making it the largest glass curtain of its kind in the world.  This will make the terminal very light and airy, at any time of the year.  It will be 270,000 m², and house numerous shops and restaurants.
