The terminal area consists of two terminals with 108 check-in counters connected via a central plaza, where also the central security control for both terminals is located. The linear pier provides 54 boarding gates. Involved in the project is the Aviation Business division with its Terminal Management Department. Hamburg has won several awards, i.e. because of its outstanding infrastructure in public and passenger terminal areas.
Role in the project
The Terminal Management department of Hamburg Airport has extensive experience in all terminal process-related issues including its continuous development according to stakeholder requirements and new available technologies. Therefore Hamburg Airport contributes to the Definition & PASSME Model Work Package (WP) 1. Hamburg Airport has special interest in the project developments on the luggage system (WP3) and check-in/smart boarding/automated gates (WP5) and will link the PASSME developments to related own projects. A key focus for Hamburg Airport in PASSME is to implement the PASSME developments within the airport itself.
