What's wrong with this airport?

Perhaps I should have posted this elsewhere, but they were rather dead, and you guys are the experts.



So I have this drawing of an airport terminal. The anticipated capacity is 35 million passengers a year. What's wrong with the design? I can tell you I'm pretty sure the airbridges are too close, but I'm not sure how to deal with this, and other things.

Are you an architect...?

Your design certainly would work only down fall would be any future expansion of aprons is limited... I've always liked SIN,HKG and DXB for example with plenty of ample space for expansion...
When designing an airport "expansion" is the key... How flexible is the design to expanding when the market exceeds the capacity...

The basic design resembles ICN a bit.

The lack of horizontal stabilizers on the airliners is worrisome. j/k

The basic design is similar to SEA, the problem is you can't expend it in the future without building satellite terminals.

Yeah, my original inspiration was BKK, but I think ICN, HKG and SZX are similiar. Here's what I mean, ignore the reference to ADD.

The runways are too short and way too close to each other. I would eliminate two runways and make them taxiways and make Runway 4 possible. And the domestic terminal is too far away from the main terminal. For a domestic terminal that size, I would slightly increase the size of the main terminal. More convenient. C1 and C2, C4(left) and C4(right) are pretty close to each other. But on general looks like a very possible airport. Nice drawing.

Maybe have more terminals in the middle rather than at the sides of the runways to reduce the amount of planes that need to cross the runways, which will allow for a higher frequency of planes to land.

It reminds me very much of Schiphol close to Amsterdam in the Netherlands.
