Post Time:Aug 05,2009Classify:Company NewsView:447

Vitro Cristalglass, an affiliate of Vitro Europe, supplied 85,000 square meters of architectural glass for the new Terminal 1 (T1) in the El Prat Airport in Barcelona, inaugurated this past June 16th.
Among the authorities present for the opening of the largest infrastructure project in Cataluña to be constructed in last two decades were Spain’s President José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, the Development Minister, José Blanco and the President of Generalitat de Cataluña, José Montilla.
The new terminal practically doubles the previous capacity and traffic volume and is now considered the second most important airport in Spain covering more than 544,000 square meters with 166 ticket counters and nearly 12,000 vehicle parking spaces.
It will process 8,000 pieces of luggage per hour and will generate 3,000 new permanent direct jobs.
The concept of the new airport is that of a “hub for air communication” of an international stature; its objective is to satisfy the growing needs of an increasing number of passengers in the region.
According to information from the Minister of Development, thanks to the new Terminal, El Prat can handle 55 million travelers per year versus 31 million last year.
“The leap forward is very impressive and we’re doing it because it was necessary, as we didn’t want Cataluña to be limited in its future opportunities”, said Rodríguez Zapatero.
