Terminal B will be 100,000 square metres, and its capacity will be 15mppa, while the tunnels (the passenger and luggage ones) will be 2138 metres each, connecting the northern and the southern areas of the gateway.
Airport officials say construction of the new terminal in the northern area of Sheremetyevo will ensure increase in passenger traffic to 53mppa by 2023 while maintaining a high level of service.
An airport spokeswoman, explains: “Tunnel capacity will enable it to service the whole scope of transfer passenger flow between the STC and NTC.
