A second recreation area for use by Schengen passengers has opened in Terminal 2 (T2) at Munich Airport in Germany. The new area is located next to Gates 43/44 and is free of charge to travelers. A similar facility has been available for non-Schengen passengers on Departure Level H for the past 18 months.
The new recreation area is furnished with plants and ambient lighting throughout, helping passengers to rest and relax prior to departure. There are 28 comfortable seats and 16 business stations equipped with their own power outlets for laptops, phones and tablets. Passengers also have access to an exclusive reading area, supplied with 600 books courtesy of Weltbild bookshops.
Each waiting area has been developed by T2BG, T2’s operating company held jointly by Munich Airport (60%)and Lufthansa (40%), in cooperation with furniture manufacturer Vitra and Munich-based design firms Studio PS and ZTR.
Christian Wallner, managing director, T2BG, said, “In March we became the first European airport to be designated a “Five-star Airport” by the London-based Skytrax aviation research institute. Facilities like these recreation areas that enhance the comfort of waiting passengers are a major factor behind the outstanding reputation enjoyed by our airport around the world.”
Marc Stadtlander, managing director, T2BG, said, “Our passengers not only enjoy fast and smooth transfers to connecting flights here in Munich. Thanks to the attractive surroundings, they also find that their waiting time just flies by.”
