Increasing operational efficiency and creating a positive impact on revenues by reconfiguring space to better suit passengers

The Quito International Airport (AIMS) wanted to create a more modern image and for its passenger terminal building’s public hall to improve the experience of passengers, their companions, and airport staff. Stantec provided design and operational planning including architecture, engineering, and interior design services for the public hall reconfiguration.

We transformed the space, opening views to the different areas of the hall and drawing attention to an iconic center piece—the information desk. Our sculptural design of this 7.2-meter-high piece called El Origen (The Origin) was inspired by the concept of the connectivity of Quito to the world. To achieve an efficient, inviting, and high-quality traveler experience, we also carefully reconfigured retail spaces and seating areas by adding built in green areas and custom furniture. The result is an improved overall passenger flow and a more open and efficient check-in processing space. Our refreshing design greets airport visitors with renovated entry doors and sidewalks and embraces sustainability by introducing largescale indoor green walls.

Creating a unified and visually open area transformed the AIMS public hall into a modern space with an identity that enhances the passenger experience and meets the airport’s evolving needs.
