Quiet zones, showers near the gates and baby changing tables in the men’s and women’s restrooms: A wide range of new and attractive services and amenities will await passengers in Munich Airport’s new satellite terminal, which is due to open in April 2016.
All of the waiting areas are tailored to individual needs, for example with quiet zones featuring comfortable reclining seating. And those who want to use the time productively will appreciate the free WLAN access as well as the plentiful electric outlets and USB connections. For families with children, the well-marked play areas will let the little ones expend their excess energy before boarding. Fathers will also appreciate the baby changing tables installed in the men’s restrooms. In addition, the satellite terminal offers shower facilities outside the Lufthansa lounges for the first time. The four showers in the gate area are accessible to all passengers. They are located on the Non-Schengen level for those who wish to freshen up before departing on long-haul flights.
Passengers with mobility restrictions can relax in their own lounge in the satellite terminal. For peace and quiet, the lounge has four special reclining lounge chairs, each in a separate space. Entertainment is available in the form of a selection of newspapers and magazines as well as television. A further convenience: fully accessible toilets and a shower. As in Terminal 2, access to all aircraft is barrier-free. The elevators can be operated with no difficulty by passengers with disabilities.
The new terminal also has a special lounge for unaccompanied minors – i.e. young people traveling alone – with all the comforts of home, including a foosball table, two networked PCs, a play corner and numerous big cushions for stretching out.
For questions or assistance, 24 Lufthansa service desks are at the ready with information or help with connecting flights. Special machines will enable transit passengers to print out their own boarding cards with no waiting time.
All services are situated at the center of the new building for quick and convenient access by customers. From here the Lufthansa lounges are just steps away.
When the satellite terminal opens in April 2016, passengers traveling in first or business class, HON Circle members, Senators and frequent travelers will have five new lounges to choose from with a total area of more than 4,000 square meters. This will once again double the size of Lufthansa’s lounge facilities in Munich. Now under construction on the top level, in a 1,000+ square meter space, is the new first class lounge, which offers the utmost in comfort for first-class passengers and HON Circle members. A special feature of the Senator and Business lounges on the Non-Schengen Level: a bar serving cold and hot beverages, specialty coffees and cocktails extends along the panoramic windows connecting the two lounges, which also offer buffets, separate working areas, a TV zone and comfortable showers in a total space of more than 3,000 square meters.
