Birmingham airport has announced the completion of a new purpose-built transit facility, allowing connecting passengers to pass through the terminal “with even greater speed and efficiency”.
The new facility will enable passengers who are travelling onwards on a connecting flight to remain airside, without having to pass through immigration or be processed through security again.
Birmingham Airport’s CEO, Paul Kehoe, said the new facility will prove to be a “huge asset” for the airport.
“The completion of our new passenger transit facility is another string to our bow in terms of what we can offer passengers and airlines focussed on long haul travel,” said Kehoe.
“This valuable piece of infrastructure enables us transfer passengers travelling between destinations, allowing them extra time to relax and enjoy the excellent facilities we have available in the departure lounge.”
The £1m investment is the latest addition to the airport’s list of new infrastructure projects, following completion of a primary radar tower, air traffic control tower and an extended runway.
