It was announced last week that The Peel Group has committed to a major investment programme in Liverpool John Lennon through a new long-term agreement with the airport’s lenders. Following the completion of £1 million (€1.4m) departure lounge improvement works, a bigger investment programme is underway, as Andrew Cornish, CEO Liverpool John Lennon Airport, explained to Airport Business.
The three-month renovation of runway 25L/07R at Brussels Airport has been completed 18 days ahead of schedule. Implementing a number of key changes, the improved runway highlights another effort from the airport to reduce its carbon footprint.
Modernisation of the old part of Warsaw Chopin’s Terminal A has effectively given the airport a brand new, state-of-the-art facility. This has created new opportunities for the growing airport, in terms of facilitating further route development and continuing to enhance the passenger experience. Michał Kaczmarzyk, Director, Warsaw Chopin Airport, shared his vision with Ross Falconer.
Phase 2 of the investment programme to transform Sydney Airport’s T1 is now underway, marking the start of the next stage in its strategy to deliver a world-class experience for passengers, visitors and staff. The renovation addresses the need for more direct paths through the terminal, clearer sight lines, better wayfinding, more passenger seating closer to gates, and an overall superior customer experience.
After three years of extensive consultation, evidence gathering and analysis, the Airports Commission has finally delivered its recommendation that a new runway at London Heathrow is the best option for expanded airport capacity. While the UK Government has announced that it will make its final decision by the end of the year, Airport Business reports on UK airports’ initial reactions to yesterday’s announcement.
