Here's the video (in German) detailing the construction: https://vbvisual.ch/projektfilme/neues-dock-a/
- New Terminal is being built right next to the old one
- once it's been built, the old one will be demolished
- the freed up space is used for new stands connected to the new terminal
- the extra space between Terminal A and B is used for 5 extra stands to compensate for the 7 that are going to be decommissioned
- it will take several years to finish (including a couple of years to prepare foundations)
Great video, do I understand right that there will be a passport control area allowing non-schengen intercontinental flights, like terminal E? Also how many extra gates overall will be added? (Entschuldigung, mein Schweizer Deutsch ist nicht so gut)
dodoma wrote:Yes there will be an extension to the passport control area which will lead into an extra non-schengen floor on terminal A. So basically it will be: 1st floor for Schengen flights, 2nd floor for transit / arriving passengers and 3rd floor for non-schengen flights.
As for the extra gates I counted 2 extra gates on the north side and another one on the south side, so that's 3 more jet bridges. Counting the reduced number of outside stands (minus 2) that's a net total of +1.
