The new terminal at Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Airport (SRR), the main international airport in Mauritius, has been officially inaugurated following three years of work.

Mauritius International Airport is located 48 km southeast of the capital Port Louis. The new terminal extends over three levels and covers an area of 56,900 m². It is the biggest infrastructure construction project in the history of Mauritius.

Jacques Follain, CEO of Aéroports de Paris Management, said, “This new terminal, which doubles the airport’s capacity, will play a key role in the economic development of Mauritius. The island wanted a world-class airport site in order to better fulfil the demands of its growing tourist industry. […]” The interior fit-out specialist company Lindner largely contributed to completing the interior design by supplying high quality metal ceilings and partitions for the interior of especially the arrival and baggage claim area. The baggage hall”s appearance is dominated by a natural and vivid mixture of curved, plain and transparent surfaces.

The ceiling comes up with curved plain elements creating waves throughout the entire room bordered by specially designed baffles that set the frame to the adjacent ceilings made of expanded metal. Lindner supplied more than 5,000 m² of this expanded metal ceiling which has, thanks to its mesh size, a filigree appearance and allows for some views to the technical side of the airport above the ceiling. Their openness is often an important criterion in airports when it comes to quickly locating the position or finding the cause of fire or smoke in the ceiling cavity.

Furthermore, expanded metal ceilings are produced in an environmentally-friendly way by stamping and drawing processes. They save on raw materials and are simple and straightforward to handle. This manufacturing process gives expanded metal ceilings from Lindner their unique character.

The decision to have the airport fitted out with high quality products from Lindner is without doubt in line with the terminal being built in accordance with the Mauritius Sustainable Island concept, which is a national priority of the country’s government. Moreover, the harmonious use of Lindner timber and glass partitions also contributes to the idea of Green and Sustainable Building. The partitions have besides their appearance also perfect sound insulating characteristics.

The airport was inaugurated on Friday 30 August, attendants at the event included members of the government, including Mauritius” prime minister, foreign delegations, distinguished guests and airport stakeholders who could convince themselves of the excellent appearance and quality.
