IGP Ingenieur GmbH commissioned with the project supervision of the extension of Terminal 1 at Munich Airport

  • IGP takes over the project supervision for the interior construction of the 340 m long new building with 90,000 m² gross floor area at Terminal 1 of Munich Airport
  • The aim is to adapt the non-Schengen area in line with requirements and to increase the quality of service and the quality of the stay
  • Commissioning planned for 2nd quarter 2026

IGP Ingenieur GmbH was awarded the contract for project supervision by Flughafen München GmbH in an EU-wide public tender. The expansion of Terminal 1 serves to increase the quality of service and the quality of stay as well as a demand-oriented production of the non-Schengen area, taking into account the Five-Star claim of Munich Airport. “We are happy to now be able to bring our expertise in airport construction to Munich,” says Christian Werner, managing director of IGP Ingenieur GmbH. IGP’s team is now managing the interior construction of the new building at Terminal 1 following completion of the shell and façade, with commissioning expected to take place on an as-needed basis in the 2nd quarter of 2026.

The 340 m long pier connects at right angles to the existing Terminal 1 and includes the area with the departure gates, as well as the core of the building with its retail stores and catering areas with a gross floor area of around 90,000 m² distributed over 5 levels.

“The expansion of Terminal 1, which opened in 1992, is being carried out during ongoing operations,” explains Christian Werner, adding, “Air traffic requirements are subject to constant change, with new demands on airports and the associated new construction and conversion measures. We see this as a challenging project with strong partners and look forward to working together.”

The project team is led by Mario Iliades and handled by the Munich branch staff, reinforced by Robert Pohling, Jürgen Franz and Marina Sänger.
