World class airport terminal building for Gibraltar

3D-Reid HM Government of Gibraltar


Due to the tripartite arrangement between Gibraltar, the UK and Spain, known as the Cordoba agreement, there are more flights to and from Gibraltar. The Rock's 40-year-old terminal had exceeded its design purpose, requiring significant modernisation to increase its annual passenger capacity from 300,000 up to one million.

To enable the development of a terminal building which could respond to the country’s economic and tourism objectives, Engain worked with HM Government of Gibraltar and project partners to produce a compelling Environmental Statement for regulatory consent.

Our environmental management of the design and build minimised the disruption and effects to adjacent neighbours and users of the site during the new terminal’s construction period. As part of this, an aeronautical study was conducted and agreed with the airport authorities, providing specific measures to regulate on-site construction activities.

The terminal was inaugurated by the Earl of Wessex, as part of Gibraltar’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations. HRH Prince Edward, officially opened the €84 million new frontier building on the 13th June, 2012.
