MAD | Madrid Barajas Airport

I put some pics from the new terminal in madrid-barajas airport, wich i think is gonna be one of the greatest in the future, but not well known, just in 2006.
the new terminal has a main buildind 1.140 m long and a satellite building 930m. long. both are comunicated by an underground train.
the total size is 940.000 m2, with 21.000 parking places and 104 fingers.
the different colors in each area, like a rainbow, are just to make it easier to move yourself to the right place
i hope you enjoy the pics, i really love this airport
















































also visit this website http://www.airliners.net/open.file/836552/L/
the architects are 'estudio lamela' (spanish) the author of the bernabeu stadium in madrid,and 'richard rogers' (u.k)
thanks to the spanish forumers, as ROTES who posted some of the pics in another thread.

I hope they have a plan to replace the existing terminals here, they'll be unacceptable after this opens.

it's planed to make a new airport in southeast metropolitan area 'campo real', because the previsions are that 'barajas' will be collapsed in 2015.
anyway, think that this new terminal is ready for 70 million passengers, and i don't expect more that those figures in 2015.

I think they're already unacceptable, but these new terminals will really make them look bad. I'd say the real problem in Barajas is that people smoke all over the place (even if it's a non-smoking airport), hope that changes.

But I'm very impressed with the work they've done.

What puzzles me is, the new terminal is going to have a TON more gates and parking spots than the current three terminals combined, which from aerial shots I've seen only have maybe 10 or 15 gates at the most. Wouldn't it make sense to move everyone to the new "T4" till they can build a new home for non-Skyteam members?

It is impossible to move everyone into th new T4 because there is no room for all the airlines. The old terminals might look very old but half of the T1 and the T3 are prety new and functionnal. The number of gates of the old terminals are 70 more or less so the old terminals are not so small (even if it looks like). BTW the airlines going to T4 are Oneworld alliance airlines + most of non-alliance airlines. Star alliance, sky team, low costs and most charter airlines will stay at the old terminals.

boring and awfull? ok, it's your opinion, but i think this building can be anything but boring.
most of airports use to be build in glass, steel, and concrete, making it so cold. i think this one is quite warm and comfortable, with all this wood roof and using the different colors.

Not really, the old terminals have almost the same amount of fingers (40) than the new (45) so it is imposible the closing of the old buildings. They look awful, old and boring, but unfortunately they are still necessary to take all the airport traficc

Thanks so much for this info! It was really difficult for me to see from aerials how big Terminals 1 - 3 are, now I understand why they'll continue to operate!
