Germany’s newly opened Magdeburg-Cochstedt International Airport has called in the services of tent maker Neptunus to install a temporary terminal to deal with increased passenger traffic.

Germany’s newly opened Magdeburg-Cochstedt International Airport has called in the services of tent maker Neptunus to install a temporary terminal to deal with increased passenger traffic.

Following the announcement that Ryanair would operate four routes to Alicante, Barcelona (Girona), Gran Canaria and Malaga earlier this year, the airport, which began operating commercially in 2011, hired the Dutch company install a 90,000sqm, semi-permanent Evolution structure to allow it to process the expected surge in passengers.

The structure is attached to the existing terminal, which remained incomplete following the insolvency of the previous airport owner.

The extended terminal offers check-in and ticket desk areas and can accommodate additional offices and advertising space throughout the main areas, it also includes food and beverage outlets, luggage belts and a customs area, providing customers with an efficient departures and arrivals process.

An airport spokesperson said: “Our vision was to create a terminal that was customer orientated, in respect of both our passengers and airline carriers, with a focus on low-cost travel yet still providing a comfortable and stress-free experience.

“Neptunus helped us to realise this vision within a very short period of time, enabling us to commence commercial operations sooner than we originally anticipated.”
