complex will be directly between the two terminals.
It is close to the airport's transportation hub, where buses,
taxis and the S-Bahn surface rail line converge.

but also businesses, since it will provide about five acres of
office space, as well as conference rooms, product showrooms and
business support services on site.
The Center's retail area accommodates some 45 stores, shops and
restaurants, from fast-food to fine dining, and the Center even
includes a supermarket and a medical facility.
Another part of the Center is a "travel market," hosting some 40
travel agency and tour operator offices.
