The newer buildings of Terminal 1 and Shopping Plaza continue the design line of the already completed Terminal 2, which as a spacious daylight-flooded hall forms a generous spatial continuum underneath a roof with its curvature taking reference from the wing of an airplane. All terminals together are dimensioned for a passenger volume of approximately 13.5 million per year in total. A pier positioned in front interlinks the terminal like a spine.
