Thanks for the info. But I think not building a T2 is a major mistake. BRU is overcrowded in the morning and imho on the edge of just being unsafe. At some point escpecially the space between rows 2 and 3 (SN) was so crowded emergency services would have had a hard time getting there in the case of an emergency...Atlantis wrote: ↑25 Aug 2019, 12:45According to the current plans, no place for T2. Everything will be in the New Terminal. The current one and the Leisure terminal. As of course you can't close the current ones and building a new one, everything will be in phases, but the concept will be completely new and according to the new standards, developments, safety, etc. As for now, there will be again a much closer drop off zone to the terminal with much bigger space than before the attacs, so good news I would say.Conti764 wrote: ↑20 Jun 2019, 10:10Working on the airport, I very much welcome the idea. But is there already any idea on how it would run? Because between the airport and the E40 there is some pretty densely populated area.
About A-pier West, how certain is the delay mentioned earlier in this thread? Especially in the morning the airport is pretty much saturated. I've even seen a lot of SN-tails pretty far away on remote stands. A-pier West could relieve the pressure by moving SN Africa ops to free up space at the current T-gates which could be used as regular A-gates troughout the day.
And it becomes pretty clear the current terminal can hardly cope with the morning rush. It sometimes becomes overcrowded. T2 should really be in the plans to improve the passenger experience at BRU, even if it would be empty in the afternoon.
One the place where the big DHL building was, even further and longer than this, a new area will be constructed. This will be the new intermodal hub for transport, a new hangar for Ground services equipment, new hotel (lets say replacing of the current one) and extra parking for passengers and staff.
At the same time also the road access to the airport will be expanded, redeveloped with new security checkpoints.
This all in the course of 2 years
Or BRU has to make transfer activities a priority and scale back on the O&D...
