Airport Terminals

Fast design and build, sustainable and cost-effective

Temporary Airport Terminals

Additional buildings are often needed at airports. From temporary aircraft hangars to full airport terminals, there are various applications for interim structures on an airfield.

For instance, the airport may be particularly busy, with more people than usual flying during the peak season. Here, a new temporary airport terminal might be needed to accommodate passengers. So, if you’re searching for suitable temporary airport buildings, we can provide a solution that meets your needs.

At Neptunus, we provide building technology that delivers instant solutions for airports where there is an urgent need for additional space or facilities. Whatever the reason, whether the airport is being refurbished or new areas are being added, we offer short-term structures that are tailored to your needs.

We’ve successfully worked with international airports in The Netherlands, Germany, Hungary and Malta, and can adapt to suit the needs of each task. Additionally, structures can be provided as a turnkey solution from an empty car park to a fully operating temporary airport terminal. We’ll make sure that your additional building is up and running in no time.


Run functioning airport facilities when you choose Neptunus

The flexibility of Neptunus’ temporary structure technology means buildings can be fitted out as terminal facilities. They can be adapted to form baggage handling operations, temporary aircraft hangars, or warehouses and storage areas. Whatever you need them for, you can keep these temporary structures in place for as long as you need them.

Like conventional terminal buildings, the structures of these new temporary airport terminals can be equipped to your specification and can accommodate check-in desks, luggage handling carousels, customs desks, and spacious and comfortable passenger lounges.

For total peace of mind, all structures meet the very latest health, safety, and fire standards, and incorporate emergency escape routes. Additionally, the buildings are fully demountable and can be relocated after use, as well as benefitting from air conditioning and heating. They can be hired or purchased and be built on most sites and surfaces.

Reasons to add a semi-permanent terminal

When is a temporary new airport terminal a useful addition?

  • The existing airport has insufficient capacity
  • For expansion projects without the need to build permanent terminals
  • To bridge a gap for a specific period, such as during renovation works or the construction of new terminals
  • For extra temporary space during peak seasons or during major events such as the Olympics
  • To replace or extend existing facilities
  • In the event of serious damage, such as a fire in airport terminals or hangars
  • The existing airport requires a temporary test facility

These are just some examples and there are many reasons why a temporary terminal might be beneficial. For information or advice about adding a semi-permanent airport structure, contact a Neptunus representative.
