The T2 satellite building launched in 2016 offers full passenger comfort and functional efficiency. Striking architecture and a wide array of catering and retail options guarantee the highest standards of quality for travelers to Germany’s first mid-field terminal.
The next chapter in a success story
The building is known as a «satellite» because it does not have its own landside access. This means that local passengers still have to go to Terminal 2 to access all standard services, such as check-in, baggage drop and baggage collection.
Architecture & innovation
State-of-the-art construction materials, innovative technology and unique architecture in the T2 satellite set new standards with respect to the environment and energy efficiency.
- Average CO2 emissions per square meter of gross floor area are 40 percent lower than in the terminal
- Climate facade: insulation based on the thermos bottle principle
- Advanced air source technology
- Daylight-style LED lighting
- Pre-Conditioned-Air-Anlagen an allen gebäudenahen Abstellpositionen
