Bilbao Airport expands its remote boarding gates and changes its name
Bilbao Airport has put into service new spaces for remote boarding of passengers. These 1,400 square metres, previously used for offices and storage, will now make it more comfortable for users to wait before boarding the plane. With this extension on the ground floor of the terminal building, passengers boarding the aircraft in a remote parking area will have spacious, multi-purpose and bright lounges at their disposal. They will be equipped with desks for working, power sockets and USB sockets, as well as new vending machines and toilets.
Taking advantage of the commissioning of the new departure lounges, Bilbao Airport has increased the information provided to passengers, with clearer and more intuitive signs to guide them to the gates. The names of the gates have also been changed, and from now on they are named with a letter and a number.
Therefore, from now on, for example, the boarding gates through telescopic gangways (fingers) will no longer be called 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6, but A11, A12, A13, B14, B15 and B16. The colours of each zone will make it easier for both frequent flyers and those flying from Bilbao for the first time to find each zone. In the space where the remote boarding lounges 7, 8 and 9 used to be, there will now be gates C21, C22, C23 and C24. And on the opposite side, gates 10, 11 and 12 will give way to gates D31, D32, D33 and D3.
