New pier in Terminal 5
In order to handle the increased demand for more intercontinental routes, a brand-new pier will be built in Terminal 5.
The new pier is designed to handle more passengers as well as larger aircraft models, for instance the Airbus A380. The trend is for airlines to have larger planes that carry more passengers. The new generation of aircraft are also quieter and more fuel-efficient than older ones, which helps keep down increases in noise and emissions.
It will be smooth and easy to go between the area for Gates F26-F69 today and the new pier – both for departing and arriving passengers.
Passengers will encounter an inviting, inspiring environment, with plenty of seating. Before you board the aircraft, you will be able to charge your phone, work a bit or watch the planes and daydream a little.
