Transiting Birmingham facility

Birmingham Airport has announced the completion of a new purpose-built transit facility, allowing connecting passengers to pass through the terminal with even greater speed and efficiency.
The new facility is set to transform the airport’s ability to cater for long haul services, as arriving passengers who are travelling onwards on a connecting flight can now remain airside, without having to pass through immigration or be processed through security again.
Birmingham Airport’s CEO, Paul Kehoe, welcomes the new facility and believes it will prove to be a huge asset for the airport.

He said: “The completion of our new passenger transit facility is another string to our bow in terms of what we can offer passengers and airlines focussed on long haul travel.

“This valuable piece of infrastructure enables us to transfer passengers travelling between destinations, allowing them extra time to relax and enjoy the excellent facilities we have available in the departure lounge.”
The £1m investment is the latest addition to the airport’s impressive list of new infrastructure projects, following completion of a new primary radar tower, a state-of-the-art air traffic control tower and extended runway.   www.birminghamairport.co.uk
