Renowned by its modern, spacious and functional structure, the terminal can comfortably accommodate over 4 million passengers per year according to the ICAO standards B class, combining the distinctive features of the major international airports with the familiarity and comfort of medium size airports.
From an architectural point of view, the terminal building blends in perfectly with the surrounding environment reflecting the local landscape’s colors on both its large glass surfaces and its metallic cover. The use of white limestone, typical of the local constructions, confers to the terminal building a familiar appearance to those who know Cagliari’s buildings and monuments, and as a result offers a first taste of the city to the arriving passengers.
The profusion of the glass surfaces create great luminosity and comfort to the terminal, allowing an external view on aircrafts, gardens, salt marshes and the sky-line of Cagliari. Inside, the soft colors of stones, steel and other materials reflect the typical colors of the island creating a comfortable environment
