In addition to winning international design awards for its striking architecture, the new terminal has been constructed with sustainability as a core principle. The building boasts a fully integrated solar photovoltaic system on the car park roof currently powering a three-megawatt (MW) solar photovoltaic (PV) plant saving nearly 5,300t of CO2 annually.

As the product of cutting-edge technology, dedication to passenger experience, and commitment to sustainability, the new terminal will explore what can be achieved when innovation, customer-centricity, and sustainability converge.
