its true...its not the design that makes a best airport..it is the quality and availability of services that it can offer to the passengers....if NAIA3 will be maintain like a hotel it will be one of the best airport in asia. I hope we will do well in this airport terminal this is our only chance to reverse the negative impressions of NAIA1 because I am not comfortable in the current impressions that naia1 gives to the passengers.

What I remembered in the north concourse there are two in departure and two in the arrival level. I would think that the remaining five are in the south concourse. My cousin told me that for the south concourse three are in the departure and two are in the arrival. He also told me that the length is about 40m. But my estimate of the ones in the north concourse are more like 60m to 80m.

Yes none of the bridges installed at Athens are double bridges, unlike NAIA3 where the 14 facing 13-31 are double bridges. BTW - for a double bridge at NAIA3, one is fixed and the other is a movable bridge. The fixed bridge can extend a limited distance, but not rotate while the movable type can both extend and rotate because it has a motor infront. Back to Athens, I was there about 18 months ago, and at that time, found the place somewhat dirty, and the check in a bit too crowded. The place actually looks like a warehouse wholesale center (like a Makro or Pricemart discount center).

Back to NAIA3, regarding the number of baggage carousels. Most postings indicate 7, but at first glance you will think there are nine because two of the carousels, are shaped like a U, whereas the remaining five are shaped like a I.

I think what you mean is that aside from the structure, the way the airport is operated makes a lot of difference. And this is very true.

thanks for clarifying everything and for giving us a ton of info on terminal 3, docz!! awesome!

umm... how many baggage carousels do international airports usually have in ratio to the number of gates/ac parking slots? is 7 carousels for 28 slots enough for terminal 3?

and, oh yeah... why do they name terminal concourses north and south? I always thought 13/31 at NAIA went east-west as the end of the runway does point towards Manila Ba... and, umm, how did the Centennial terminal get north and south wings when the two wings are perpendicular to each other?

Actualy I just used those terms because when I shown the place those were the terms the guide used.

Regarding the number of carousels, changi has 60+ gates and only has 16 carousels. But I guess the people arriving at Changi do not bring as much lagguage as the people arriving at NAIA. HKIA and KLIA only have 12 carousels but have more than twice as many gates as NAIA3.

The contractor (TAKENAKA) needs to finish some unfinished business. They need to make an access tunnel under secondary runway and lengthen the secondary runway to accomodate larger aircraft. The moved the July 21 opening to November 2005. The IATA inspected the facilities prior to its opening on July 21 and concluded that it should not be open not unless the Terminal and supporting infrastructure is totally completed.

Actually the terminal layout itself is not unique at all. The only unique is the interior of the terminal which is much very designed for the convenience of the passengers. We cannot use lots of see through Glass in here because the temperature in the philippines sometimes reaches 34 degree celcius during summer and it is very difficult to maintain the air-conditioning at constant temperature. so they use concerete for the walls.

Well what about places like Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore that have tropical environments with temperatures reaching into the mid 30's also (Note that Singapore is closer to the equator than Manila), yet their new airport terminals make use of lots of glass walls.

I'm just wandering what type or kind of Architecture design are these buildings? It is not a typical "classic design" nor a modern design and I believe they are only in the philippines i think, what are the inspiration of these design or their theme because you can see a lot of hard concrete square?
Leandro Locsins favourite architect is Frank Lloyd Wright and he drew inspiration from his work. FLW was a 1930's architect w/c had a modern vision in architecture during his time. U can see from the design of the Kauffman House (or Falling water), Guggenheim Museum in new york. Basically they are very masive & Graceful Concrete structures.

Yes Richard, they have it also here and the asia forums particularly the Philippines. This is how and where I actually discovered SSC forums when i was looking at different websites of various airports in the world. I'm also an afficionado or I guess enthusiast of airliners and airports...
