BCN/GRO/REU | Airports in Catalonia (Barcelona)

Well, it is not one of the biggest but I had not seen anything about it in skyscrapercity.com. Here it is...

Here you have the new terminal building currently under development:











Now, some general views of the airport after completion of current project:





Some figures:

Aeropuerto actual* -> Aeropuerto futuro

Superficie aeroportuaria 845 hectáreas -> 1.533 hectáreas
Superficie de los terminales 103.125m2 -> 580.000 m2
Operaciones por hora 52 -> 90
Operaciones al día 800 -> 1.200
Pasajeros al año 25 millones -> 40 millones
Posiciones de contacto 24 -> 85
Mostradores de facturación 113 -> 300
Cintas de equipajes 14 -> 33
Plataformas de aeronaves 70 posiciones -> 168 posiciones
Terminal de carga 35.000 metros -> 160.000 metros

* Antes de aprobarse el Plan Director y ponerse en marcha el Plan de Infraestructuras 2000-2007.


And, beyond that ?

Well, let's see what AENA (spanish airports authority) say about further enlargements of Barcelona airport capacity:

"Beyond Barcelona Plan

El proceso de transformación del aeropuerto no se acaba con la puesta en servicio de la nueva pista de vuelos, la nueva área terminal y los nuevos accesos viarios y ferroviarios.

Más allá del año 2008, y más allá de la operación estrictamente aeroportuaria, veremos cómo se van haciendo realidad el Parque Industrial, el Centro de Carga y la City, desarrollando una auténtica ciudad de servicios a los pasajeros y los agentes relacionados con la industria aeroportuaria, aeronáutica y logística.

También veremos cómo más allá del año 2015 se construye un satélite para procesar unos 15-20 millones de pasajeros más.

Todo ello podrá ser posible porque existe una planificación y se está realizando un diseño para que en Barcelona puedan aterrizar y despegar, en un año, más de 55 millones de pasajeros."


And an image of that possible development:

Hello from Barcelona Airport!

I opened a thread about this enlargement some months ago, you can find a lot of info & pics:

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...=232350&page=1

BTW, the name that we use commonly for the new terminal is "la espada": "the sword".

New terminal must open in 2008-9.
The 3rd runway is working since October 2005.

The new control tower (3r one of BCN airport) is already finished and will be working very soon!
