The new Sea Prime terminal features state-of-the-art facilities for both passengers and crew. The building has been designed as a single-floor building to offer guests a positive customer experience through freedom and assistance from arrival through to departure. The ultimate objective, shared with the client, is to welcome customers into a state of- the-art building that was in line with some of the world best terminals, by offering a highly functional environment that provides traveler’s and crew with the opportunity to feel both relaxed and comfortable.
The building entrance is covered in panels of painted aluminium sheets with a mother-of-pearl grey to provide a unique glossy and mirroring effect. This also provides a contrast with the dark colour of the external covering to give more light to the entrances for welcoming passengers.
From the lobby, passengers enter the security checkpoint through a glass wall with sliding doors. Located here are also the state authority offices responsible for the control of departing and arriving passengers.
The terminal will host five exclusive lounges to meet the needs of different passenger demographics and each one will be characterized by SEA Prime Partners soon to be announced.
A new exclusive car park will also be introduced to provide facilities for 110 parking spaces.
Airside facilities will include a dedicated apron, as well as a newly renovated 5,000m2 hanger adjacent to the terminal to host customers’ executive jets.
Finally, in order to provide a unique and lasting impression on the airport’s landscape, great attention have been given to the view of the building from above. The buildings shape, color and coating materials have been chosen considering the perspective of both the pilots and passengers on board incoming or departing planes.
“When developing the terminal building, the well-being of passengers and the crews was the main focal point of the design. The terminal is a single-floor building designed to offer guests maximum freedom and assistance from arrival to departure. Great attention was also given to the view of the building from above, with the shape, color and coating material created with consideration of the perspective of both the pilots and passengers on board an incoming or departing airplane.”
