Neat yes?

Beijing Capital International Airport's Relatively Small...

For a terminal its size, Beijing-Capital International Airport's Terminal 3 sure has a small pre-departure hall/baggage claim area. I mean, even Hong Kong International Airport's terminal (which is only roughly half as big as T3) has a bigger pre-departure area/baggage claim area.

I think it's the terminal's shape that makes it look "small", despite the fact that its total floor area (main terminal + attached concourse) amounts to 496,000m2!

Anyway, Incheon is expanding too!

@ celestar0

Yup, I saw that new concourse being constructed (still in its excavation stage) when I was in Seoul last Summer. I'm already wondering, though, whether Seoul actually really needs as massive an expansion as this when, in fact, it is not a very busy international hub (23 million pax).

I don't see it that way. I think Incheon's new Remote Concourse basically looks like a "straightened" version of its own existing structures: the larger middle part resembles the existing main terminal, & the wings resemble the existing concourse, but without those poles & cables on top...or will they be added later?! Anyhow it's still u/c, so let's see how it's gonna be after sometime...

Main terminal + concourse:

Hey...

How does a domestic and international airport in the same terminal work?
Is it all separated.???

I reckon the old T1 and T2 should be destroyed and another built in its place for domestic flights.

So T3 = International
T1 & T2 = Domestic or something.

Now that'd be real impressive.

But awesome airport. I absolutely love it...

I agree. If Beijing can afford to build T3, it definitely should raze the older ones and impress the world again.

T3 ( 0>---< )

T3A ( >- )

- Domestic flights: all procedures
- Int'l flights: (arrivals) baggage claim, customs; (departures) check-in


T3B ( -< )

- Int'l flights only: the rest of procedures (passport control, security check, boarding/deplaning, etc.)

T3C ( - )

- Int'l flights only: boarding/deplaning; other info on procedures N/A (expected to be the same as T3B)

Look at That Sexy, Beautiful Monster!

Wow! That is simply amazing! It really looks well made! How in hell were they able to make such a beautiful roof for that monster!

If only [BCIA] would make yet another terminal as big and beautiful as this!

Btw, how many aero-bridges are to be installed at T3?

AFAIK, there will be 69 sets of aero-bridges, of which at least 14 sets are each to be shared by 2 boarding gates. Therefore the no. of boarding gates to be served by aero-bridges will be 83.

But why are the aerobridges double-leveled? Why can't they be more cost efficient and simpler by installing bridges like HKIA's? The ones there connect the plane (Arr & Dep) then separate into upper (Dep) and lower levels of terminal bldg via ramps.

Largest Terminal

Wow, I am surprised that this new largest terminal in Beijing will be more impressive than I thought. This is big amazing design to me because the terminal is too largest and futurist "STAR WAR" movie Concept. I believe this can handle more than 100 million passengers next near decade soon. Can't wait to visit this terminal when it will be done someday soon! This looks very nice!!
