DAL | Dalian Jinzhouwan International Airport

Dalian Jinzhouwan International Airport is an airport being built to serve the city of Dalian in Liaoning Province, northeast China. Once open it will replace the existing Dalian Zhoushuizi International Airport as the city's main airport. It is being built on 21 square kilometres (8.1 sq mi) of reclaimed land off the coast of Dalian. Expected to open in 2018, it is set to become the world's largest offshore airport.

The airport is being built in two stages. The first stage comprises a 400,000-square-metre (4,300,000 sq ft) terminal building and two runways, and is designed to handle 31 million passengers and 650,000 tons of cargo per year. Two more runways will be built in the second phase (class 4F), and once completed the airport will have the capacity to handle 70 million passengers a year, as well as 1 million tons of cargo each year.

This new airport is seriously delayed I believe mainly due to political reason. It almost halts to no progress. Qingdao city, its arch rival city will have a brand new giant airport soon in 2019, and Xiamen new airport, probably Chengdu new airport may be built sooner.

Which terminal design will be used? Like Chengdu, Qingdao and Xiamen, there have been renderings that show several different layouts for the terminal. The same thing happened when Chongqing and Shenzhen were building new terminals in the past decade - there were lots of renderings release with different layouts, and we had to wait until construction began to see which one was selected.

Disappointing to hear that construction has slowed down. I flew through the existing Zhoushuizi airport last month, and while the terminal buildings are modern and still rather spacious (at least the gate areas - the ticket lobby was rather crowded), it's obvious a replacement airport is needed. Zhoushuizi is right in the middle of the city and planes fly very low over residential areas on landing and takeoff.

If my machine translated info is correct, neither of the two will be built, if the airport eventually does get completed.

The one with the long finger piers is by an architecture firm from Texas called
GSaaN - see http://www.g-saan.com/index.php?c=article&id=189;
the cross-shaped one is by an architecture firm from Texas called Corgan, see
https://www.corgan.com/projects/new-airport/

The winning entry is one with six piers, depicted in the top two images here:

In any event, the code wouldn't be DAL, even if the old city code DLC doesn't move to the new airport, because DAL stands for Dallas Love Field, in Texas.

The new airport will get built. There is no question about it. The problem is when. It won't be as early as it planned 5 years ago. It may start resume real construction in 2018, or in another 2-3 years.

In the photo it look like they have begun the piling, the terminal will take 2+ years to build so the airport will not open before 2020.

I was curious about this too. I was able to visit the IATA headquarters in October and asked about this then to the staff there. It is all decided by a computer algorithm now, with no choices in letter combinations allowed or for horse-trading with existing Airport Code holders. However the interesting this was the future inclusion of numbers into new airport code, just as some airlines have alphanumeric combinations, eg. Sichuan Airlines is 3U. Maybe it will not be DAL but it could be DA1 or D8L, as an example. I asked this because I was curious about the designations for the new airports at Beijing and Chengdu and the obvious codes for those cities are already taken too.
