Celebrations have been held at Munich Airport to mark the first birthday of the pace-setting midfield terminal, which was the first to be built at a German airport and in its first year has handled more than 74,000 flights.
One in five of the roughly 9m passengers to use the facility, a continuation of the successful joint venture between the airport and Lufthansa, since it opened in 2016 have travelled on intercontinental routes.
The satellite increased the capacity of Terminal 2, which is used by Lufthansa and its Star Alliance partners, by 11m to 36m passengers a year and is noted for its light-flooded spaces and range of services.
Officials say the building has proved a big hit with passengers and staff, helped by an underground personal transport system (PTS) that takes barely a minute for the trip from the main Terminal 2 building to the satellite.
The link also makes it possible for passengers departing from Terminal 2 gates to go to the satellite and explore the shopping and dining options available there, which include 16 retail spaces, seven restaurants and cafés and three duty free stores with a total area of 7,000sq m.
