Eindhoven Airport in the Netherlands is planning a revamp of its terminal facilities which will include a facelift of the security area, new check-in and bag-tag kiosks alongside a new landside catering establishment.
The security area is currently being redesigned with the aim of improving both its functionality and appearance, with the airport noting that this will see passenger routing to the area optimized. Before travelers enter the security area, they will be guided through the pre-scans that have been brought forward for better routing. The airport claims these interventions create a more relaxed journey for passengers and employees in the area. The new security area will be ready in mid-March 2021.
The improvements will also see the addition of six check-in kiosks and five bag-tag kiosks in the terminal. Initially, the check-in kiosks will only be available for Transavia and TUI passengers and manned check-in counters will remain available for the handling of complex bookings. However, the bag tag kiosks will be available for all airlines. The kiosks are expected to be gradually available for passengers from January and if deemed necessary, more kiosks will be added later in 2021.
The airside service point for passengers with reduced mobility has also been recently optimized. The space has been expanded to provide more room for wheelchairs and companions. In addition, the appearance has been modernized and two flight information screens installed. The signage has also been adjusted and a new service desk near gate 6 has been added.
