That's why the other runways will be fixed and more will be added once they make DMIA as the main international airport

Don't think we should put too much expectations on these low-cost terminals. I don't consider no-air conditioning and boarding a plane from the tarmac in the driving rain to be 'best' even if it's 'best' among the worst.

That being said, there are airports catering to low-cost airlines that offer a much more humane and typical flying experience - Stansted being one of them.

Adelaide uses its main terminal for Low Cost carriers

Virgin Blue used to use the old international airport and had a very disgusting temporary structure section where you would board. The luggage reclaim was outside!

First of all, this thread has been reopened and revived so that members who love airport designs (like yours truly) can discuss what it takes to have a "good" (if not acceptable) low-cost terminal at an airport. And second, this is an aspect of airport development I am interested in looking deeper into because whenever I think of low-cost terminals, I immediately think that these are located far away from city centers and only serve low-cost carriers... nowadays, however, some airports like Kuala Lumpur, Osaka, and Hong Kong, have built such terminals next to (or close to) their main terminals. And I believe this trend of having low-cost terminals will continue, especially with the increasing popularity of LCCs all over the world.

Schiphol Pier H (lowcostpier)

Since 2005 Schiphol has a lowcostterminal for airlines BMIbaby, Flybe, EasyJet, Jet-2, and Air Berlin. The pier is extremely basic without an airbridge, bars, shops, toilets and seats.

The gate numbers are announced 40 minutes prior to departure, together with the status ‘boarding’. The plane only stays 26 min on the tarmac for making a turn for the next flight.



Basic lowcostpier

Yes that's right no toilets. The whole pier is very cheap for maintenance and cleaning. So the slots are way cheaper then the other regular slots at Schiphol. But the terminal is connected to the main airport. Before going to Pier H, the passengers can go to the toilets at the main piers.
