The Bucharest Airports Company has announced that it has acquired all the land it needs to begin work on a second terminal for its Henri Coanda International Airport in Romania. The EUR 1 billionn project, first announced in April 2019, will involve constructing the terminal, as well as a railway platform, moving walkways, access roads, parking lots and buildings. The terminal will consist of four separate buildings built using modular technology, with each capable of handling 5 million passengers a year. The modular design will allow the airport to expand in stages in response to passenger numbers.
By 2030, Terminal 2 alone should be able to handle 20 million passengers a year.
The terminal will be directly connected to the A3 motorway, to the railway system, and to the Bucharest Metro system through Metro Line 6.
The airport, which is one of two to serve Bucharest, presently has a single terminal consisting of three sub-terminals. Henri Coanda 2 will be developed a few hundred metres to the east of it.
