Bucharest international airport facilities consist of a single terminal with two main buildings (occasionally considered to be separate terminals). These two buildings are the Departures Hall (formerly known as International Departures Hall) and the Arrivals Hall (formerly known as International Arrivals / Domestic Hall). A walkway with several shops connects the buildings. The airport has one concourse (the so-called finger terminal) with 24 gates (of which 14 equipped with jetways as its shown in Bucharest international airport map) and passengers transit organized in two separate, Schengen / non-Schengen, flows. The International Departure area hosts a variety of shops, cafes, lounges, Internet cafes and many more. There is also a chapel at the first level of the International Departures Hall. The facilities inside the airport are easily accessible for the persons with disabilities. Airlines distribute Romanian- and English-language newspapers at the departure gates.
Bucharest international airport is currently undertaking Phase III of its development program, a € 150 million investment, which consist of the expansion of Departure Hall, Arrivals Hall and the concourse. At the end of this phase (2012), the terminal will have a processing capacity of 4,500 passengers per hour as its mentioned in Bucharest international airport map. Thus the airport capacity is expected to raise to a total of 6 mil. passengers annually on both domestic and international routes. Beyond Phase III, a new terminal building ( Henri Coandă 2), located at the Eastern end of the current location is envisioned. Henri Coandă 2 will be of a modular design, consisting of 4 separate buildings, each capable of individually handling 5 million passengers annually. Each module will be built as traffic demands will dictate. Thus, by 2023, Terminal 2 alone should be able to handle the 20 million passengers per year indicated by estimates. The terminal will be connected to the future A3 motorway , to the railway system and to the Bucharest Metro system as Bucharest Metro Line M6 .
