Wow nice updates. Seems like they're starting to work at the middle section of T3 already? BTW are they gonna add another layer to the roof? It doesn't seem to be in its final stage. The gate section before the aerobridge seems rather big it seems as if they're for A380's?

Yes. They recently began to construct what's to be called T3C:

I thought so too until a few days ago, when I came across an aviation forumer who had unexpectedly witnessed some "extra" construction activities at the T3C site & wondered if they'd already started....

So I browsed for the news to see what's really happening.

(in Simplified Chinese, sorry I can't find any news of such in English)

Extracts from the news (about T3C):
- originally planned for construction after 2015, but in order to ease off traffic pressure from increase in int'l flights in 2008 --> construction ahead of schedule
- covers land area of approx.92000m2
- to be completed along with T3AB, operational before the Olympics
- exclusively for int'l flights, just as T3B will be --> greatly increase the airport's capacity of handling int'l traffic

Cool, they should built the entire terminal to begin with, theres no point of waiting for future expansion since Beijing is going to get an entire new airport in 2010

I'm sure many of these workers are more than willing to work abroad if they get good pays!

There has been a couple articles from the China Daily about the possibility of a second international airport for Beijing. The first stated that air traffic figures will be examined once Terminal 3 and third runway enter service to determine if there is a need for a second airport. The other mentioned a site 50km South of the city as a potential location for it.

heres the article:

Beijing To Build Second International Airport
March 8, 2006
Beijing is expected to build a second international airport in the next five years, a state newspaper said on Wednesday, to help it cope with soaring demand for air travel.

China's capital is home to the country's busiest airport -- handling 41 million passengers in 2005 -- and is spending at least CNY25 billion yuan (USD$3.11 billion) to build a new terminal and third runway in preparation for the 2008 Olympic Games.

"In the long term, Beijing will certainly need a second or even third airport," the Beijing News quoted vice head of the civil aviation regulator, Wang Changshun, as saying on the sidelines of the annual meeting of parliament.

The second airport is likely to be built within the next five years, he said, although a location has not been chosen.

Beijing already has a small second airport to the south of the city that handles a limited number of civil flights by China United Airlines, once military owned and now part of Shanghai Airlines.

But state media has said a site further out of the city, closer to the port city of Tianjin, was a more likely contender for a fully developed second airport.

The existing main airport will be able to handle 70 million passengers by 2007 under its current expansion plan.

China is spending billions of dollars to upgrade facilities and build new airports to meet booming demand for travel in one of the world's five largest economies. It opened a USD$2.4 billion airport in the southern city of Guangzhou in 2004.

The sector has attracted foreign investors, including Germany's Fraport, Denmark's Copenhagen Airports and Singapore and Hong Kong's airport authorities.
