The central lounge of the airport, built in 1976, was expanded to double its volume. To optimally utilize the limited space in the heart of the airport, the expansion floats above the service roads of the platform.
Steel constructions with great spans support steel plate concrete floors for the floors and the roof. The possibility to make a line for an automatic system for the transport of passengers on the roof of the building, is allocated in the construction.
A spectacular new tax-free shopping centre by British designers Virgile & Stone is integrated in the lounge. A glimpse of this shopping centre can be caught through the roof lights on the panorama terrace for recreants, on top of the lounge.
