A unique building, with high aesthetics and ergonomically thought. The new Passenger Hall completed in September 2016, has an area of 10.000 sq.m and construction cost of EUR13.5 million. It consists of seven shells, which, like huge portholes, are framing the view of anchored cruise ships and harbour.
The numbering of the shells and the transition from one shell to the next via the connecting areas, whose topography and alternation of light colors to dark tones, signal the exit from a shell and entrance to another, oﬀer ongoing guidance to the visitor.
The shells 01, 02 and 03 house the Arrival halls, customs, immigration and police departments. The shell 04 on the ground ﬂoor serves as the luggage collection for the transport area, while the ﬁrst ﬂoor houses a restaurant which is open to the public, all year round. In the restaurant’s top ﬂoor there is a skybar with uninterrupted panoramic views of the city of Limassol, the port and the Mediterranean.
The shell 05 houses the Arrival hall and includes a cafeteria, Travel Agent oﬃces and information oﬃce. The shells 06 and 07 house the Departure halls, immigration department, as well as a café and several shops.
