The Future of Air Hubs Lies with Seoul and Dubai

I think the future of air hub lies with Seoul and Dubai. The kind of planning that these two cities made for their future airports are astounding. Seoul's The Winged City (Incheon International Airport and Environs) is HUGE! Dubai's Jebel Ali Airport City is OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD!!!

*Seoul-Incheon International Airport, The Winged City: 5,610 hectares

*Jebel Ali Airport City: 14,000 hectares

Note, too:
*Kuala Lumpur International Airport: 10,000 hectares (planned for 5 runways)
*Singapore Changi International Airport: 1,600 hectares (with 3 runways)
*Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International Airport: 3,200 hectares (planned for 4 runways)
*Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport: 1,500 hectares (with 2 runways)
*Beijing-Capital International Airport: 2,600 hectares (with 3 runways)
*Shanghai-Pudong International Airport: 4,000 hectares (planned for 4 runways)

In fact, the third runnway for Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport is already underway. The total number of runnways planned is 4 not 2.

Beijing Capital spotting

Hi!
Few days ago i used to visit Chinese capital Beijing. Very beautiful, colorful, interesting city. And of course i just had to make some spotting at PEK. It is my favourite airport in Asia because of its nice traffic and the taxiway bridges over a highway.

So, it was a day off...
ZBAA/PEK, morning

Air China Boeing 737


Vikings on A340


Philippines A320


The same "Triple 7" brought me to this beautiful city..


VIP


Just simple life of the airport


Jumbo


China Eastern


And again Jumbo


And again VIP


My favourite American-built aircraft, doubtless


Going somewhere


Ready to taxi


And here is my favourite site hehe


More...


Giant!


Americans, from SFO i guess


Final - first class passengers


Thanks fot watching that, and thanks to all people of Beijing and China for their hospitality
