The passenger terminal complex at Brussels Airport consists of one integrated building with four levels and Concourse A (with A & T gates) & Concourse B (with B gates). NOTE: The following projects have been completed:
- The Connector Building includes a baggage reclaim hall, security screening and new exit for border control, and enables passengers to reach A & B concourses /piers directly from check-in area with no floor change.
- The protocol building opened with a royal room, a number of lounges, meeting rooms & relax areas; and
- In 2016 the Departures Hall reopened and the Gatewa Project was completed, involving the redevelopment of the old terminal building (converting the U-shaped terminal into an enclosed office complex with meeting areas and conference facilities).
- Brussels Airport increases passenger comfort by gradually replacing the existing 10,000 seats with 'Meda Gate model, brand Vitra' chairs, using its basic model but suiting various passenger preferences. The chairs have integrated sockets for charging electronic devices.
The new Connector Building now links the Terminal above-ground to Concourses A & B.
