Birmingham Airport has revealed its draft £500m Masterplan, which outlines how the airport intends to develop and invest over the next 15 years. With plans designed by Pascall+Watson, the comprehensive study sets out the development required to serve 18 million passengers a year by 2033 utilising the airport’s single runway.
It includes a major expansion of the terminal facilities, additional aircraft stands and improved transport access, including future links connecting the airport to the new HS2 Interchange Station.
The proposed developments will increase capacity by 40% and will improve the passenger experience, to make Birmingham one of Europe’s leading regional airports.
The final masterplan is due to be published in 2019.
Robert Eaton, Head of Planning, Transport and Strategy at Birmingham Airport commented:
“Pascall+Watson has successfully supported us in developing the masterplan strategy, working collaboratively throughout the project and engaging with stakeholders and consultants to identify how we can modernise and extend our facilities so they are fit for the future, improve our passengers’ experience and increase efficiency for our airlines, handling agents and business partners"
