Balice Airport New Terminal, Krakow, Poland

EIM

The newly opened terminal at the John Paul II International Airport Krakow-Balice is one of the most important aspects of the airport expansion project, aimed at increasing the airport's passenger capacity to 8 million a year. 

At 33,000m2, the new terminal provides an arrivals hall with three baggage carousels, a waiting room and 11 boarding lounges with shops and restaurants. There are three passenger boarding bridges, allowing people to board and disembark without going outside.

The terminal façade is glass and pre-patinated copper composite panels. Apart of their aesthetic qualities, these materials also enhance the building’s prestige. The pre-patinated copper composite panels were manufactured in assembly bays and then installed on the terminal building envelope.

The new terminal is served by a railway station which provides a direct and frequent rail connection to Krakow city centre.
