First years

Great Adonian War



Ramishvili airport features three terminals, connected by the Senaki Airport MSM station in the center of the airport.

Terminal 1

Terminal 1 serves mainly intercontinental and continental long range flights. It consists of a wing attached to the main terminal building. In 2014, the airport authorities started the construction of an expansion to terminal, which will significantly increase the capacity and the area, with 70,000 m². It is planned to be opened in September 2017, and will accommodate the Aikok A380. Zong's flag carrier, CHHK, plans an inaugural A380 flight to Senaki on 14 February 2017 to mark the opening of its new route to Senaki. Designed to meet new passenger expectations, leaving enough space for shops and services to make the airport a hub of aerial activity in the region, the new Terminal 1 will be an extension to the existing Terminal 1, replacing the current metal-fabric section of the western concourse.

Terminal 2

Terminal 2 serves intercontinental and continental medium and short range flights. It consists of a wing attached to the main building, and two piers, in the form of a "T". Pier A and B are mirrors of each other on each side of the tarmac. The piers are connected immediately to the main departure hall and all consist of two decks. The upper deck (level 3) is at the same level as the departure halls and is used for the departing passengers, whereas the lower deck (level 2) is used for arriving passengers and connects immediately to border control and the baggage claim area.

Terminal 3

Located to the north of the MSM station, Terminal 3 is 4 stories above the basement floor structure. It has a semicircular shape with an arc on the side of the northern runways. Eighteen boarding bridges are arranged at equal intervals on the arc, able to accommodate wide-body aircraft up to the Böing 747. The first floor part is the arrival lobby, the second floor part is the departure lobby, and the MSM station is directly connected to the basement 1st floor. The terminal serves intercontinental, continental medium and short range flights.
