The airport now has only one terminal for the moment:
– Terminal 1; with a total surface area of 5,600 m² and a capacity of 500,000 passengers / year.
– Terminal 2; Under construction.
This new terminal (26,000 m2) which required an investment of 620 million Dhs, will thus make it possible to increase the overall annual capacity of the Fès-Saîs airport to three million passengers. It should be noted that the new terminal, with an area of 26,000 m2, will bring the overall area of the airport to 31,500 ha. It should allow the extension of aircraft parking lots (8 medium-haul and 2 jumbo jets) and have a new link with the runway and a vehicle parking lot on the city side, with a capacity of 800 places.
The new terminal will be equipped with state-of-the-art equipment: baggage handling system, access control and video surveillance, remote display and CUTE system, information system, new signage and exterior signs. The various networks are for their part made up of luminous markings, lighting on the runway side and on the city side, power plant, sanitation, green spaces and plantations. The first steps of the new terminal will be given in September 2010 for a period of 24 months.
