Spanair has begun preparations to move to Barcelona Airport’s new Terminal 1, which is due to open on June 16th.
This comes after Spanish national airport company AENA confirmed that Star Alliance Members would be the first airlines to operate from the new terminal.
Ferran Soriano, Spanair’s president, said the airline was "pleased" to be moving into Terminal 1 alongside other Star Alliance members.
"We want to be the leading company in the T1, offering our clients a new flying experience, an excellent service and a wide choice of domestic and international destinations in conjunction with other Star Alliance airlines," he commented.
Passengers will benefit from a large number of check-in and auto check-in desks at the new terminal, which will also feature upgraded boarding areas and a new VIP lounge.
Spanair operates 740 weekly international flights from Barcelona in addition to 756 weekly domestic flights.
Barcelona is Spain’s second-largest airport behind Madrid’s Barajas Airport, with just over 30 million passengers flying from the airport last year.
