Not that "new" anymore =P

The red colour visible inside is interesting. That's a rather high roof!

Wow the interior is massive! Very unusual style/material for the roof. Does anybody know if they will further hide the red metal beams that are still visible?

Aren't all international flights/foreign airlines switched to this new terminal? While the old T1 and T2 is purely domestic?

They are depends how you calculate it, but Beijing claims its airport terminal when completed to be the biggest in the world. BTW Beijing is also building a new airport after 2010 and I'm sure they're going to impress the world with that one.

The new terminal has more capacity than the 2 current terminals combined do. The most logical thing to do at this point, after T3 opens, is to demolish T1 and T2 completly and to build another mega terminal in that spot.

By the way, why aren't they connecting the T3 taxiways to the rest of the airport? That is like the last thing they have to do.

Yep. New York has 3 airports Beijing can also have more, for a country with the largest population it isn't surprising that they will built more. Beijing airport is afterall the busiest airport in China, and the numbers will just rise.

Heres the article, I can't find the detail one but this will do:

Actually, NY only has 2 airports- one domestic, one international. The third one is in New Jersey, a neighboring state. Plus, NY actually needs newer airports.

More updates :-)

This time, interior of T3B (by hdzhou, 1 Nov, '06):


People mover tracks between Southeast & Southwest Concourses. The way the concourses are named is the same as that of Hong Kong CLK:




Looking south from a passage above the tracks:




Inside the Southeast Concourse, with an autoline on the left covered up. Different theme colour from T3A....

I remember when Sir Norman Foster proposed this terminal design for the competition, an essential part of the colour scheme was the change in internal theme colour, from red on one end of the terminal (T3A) to yellow on the other end (T3B). So I suppose T3C to be in orange?

This likely answers zergcerebrates' question, that they seem not to hide the metal beams that are still visible, because the beams are there to display the colour change:




Fixed portion of the boarding bridge, double-decked:




Interior of the 'double-decker':




Inside the central area, part of which is the people mover platform:




On the people mover platform:
