The investor company of the DCH group has revealed exclusive details about the design and layout of the new air gates of Dnipro.
“The new building will have 20 check-in counters, six boarding gates, of which three will be equipped with bridges. This will allow passengers to disembark and disembark directly from the building on board the aircraft ", - Avianews describes technical innovations that DCH Yaroslavsky, who has experience in the construction and operation of the international airport" Kharkiv ", will apply in Dnipro.
As you know, the DCH group is investing about $ 70 million in the construction of terminal infrastructure at the Dnipro airport. The main investment is the passenger terminal with an area of 26,680 square meters. It will be 3-storey.
The first floor will house a check-in hall, a baggage handling area, a domestic arrival hall with one baggage carousel and an international arrival hall with two baggage claim belts, of which two levels will be main and one auxiliary.
Plan of the first floor of the new passenger terminal at Dnipro airport
Second floor - auxiliary: offices will be located here, as well as a transit corridor for passengers to enter the gallery of the boarding bridge for boarding airplanes or exiting the boarding bridge and descending into the baggage claim hall.
The third floor is the departure area: here you will be able to go through security control for passengers, and then you can proceed to the departure hall of domestic flights or to passport and customs control if the traveler is leaving on an international flight.
Yaroslavsky's company reported that they plan to complete construction within 2 years. The construction of a new terminal at Kharkiv airport with similar characteristics took about the same amount. However, the investor will be able to put the new building into operation only after the new airfield is put into operation. The government has pledged to build a new runway, taxiway and apron with airplane parking in front of the new terminals.
Infrastructure Minister Vladislav Krykliy previously assured that his department is working with the Ministry of Finance to provide funding for the construction of a state-owned airfield at Dnipro airport in the 2021 budget in the amount of UAH 2 billion.
The construction site, where the future new terminals will be located, in the center of the airfield, is located between the old terminal and the apron, and the operating runway. This will allow creating a new airport without stopping the reception and departure of passengers through the old terminals of the air terminal.
