Development of EuroAirport’s Zone 4

First stone laid for the new Cargo Terminal

Wednesday 19 June 2013, the first stone of the new Cargo Terminal, an air freight logistics centre with adjoining buildings, has been laid at an official ceremony.

Covering an area of 27 hectares, Zone 4 is located in the southeast of EuroAirports’s South Zones (60 hectares in all). When the new Cargo Terminal goes into operation, all-cargo flight activities will be shifted around 750 metres to the southeast of the platform. One of the main improvements offered by the new infrastructure is the continuous regulation of a temperature range from 15 to 25°C inside the terminal. The new building will thus be ideal for handling pharmaceutical products. Apart from efficient delivery and dispatching processes, an unbroken cold chain is an essential requirement for partners of a cargo airport.

The new Cargo Terminal represents an investment of more than 40 million euros, wholly financed by EuroAirport. The new building is based on a low-energy construction method, and will have a total surface area of 21,000 m2. EuroAirport is thus building on a vital sector of business while at the same time strengthening its position as a logistics platform for the region’s export business. As is the case at the moment, the new Cargo Terminal will have a French and Swiss sector.
