I was thinking of the same thing. I wonder how they are going to fit the aero bridges there? The bridge must be short? Hmm

I think double deck aero bridges are for new Airbus A380s, they are double decked too. They are fast to load/unload passengers at both levels




See there are gates at both decks in A380, just use lower gate like Boeing 747 are surely too slow for A380.

AFAIK there will be 1 set of aerobridges specifically for A380 in T3A, 3 sets of such in T3B. No data for T3C. I expect there to be advantage(s) / appropriate reason(s) for using these "double-deckers" (not counting A380's case), probably related to the layout / pax flow design.

There is escalator installed inside the "double-decker", similar to those in Incheon (photos by DFKJB, early-Nov.):







Anyway, look closely & one will notice that not all sets of aerobridges are double-decked" (photo by FORONE2006)!

Nice updates.

BTW that control tower seems kinda close to where the planes park doesn't it? Is it intended for small planes? Its seems that if a 747 parked there another 747 cannot go through.

T3 is really large...

...and the ceiling height is higher than I thought!

Btw, I find the check-in/baggage claim hall is not as big as Hong Kong International Airport! Why?! This is suppose to be a terminal that is considered to be a lot bigger than Hong Kong International Airport's terminal.

They could be narrowbody gates, but more likely, the scale of the terminal makes the gap between the control tower and the building look small. This is one massive terminal...

It was said there is check-in/baggage claim center in Dongzhimen, located on the NE corner of the city, which is linked by direct rail to the airport (T1, T2 and T3). Passenger can check-in in Dongzhimen and take aiport railtrain directly for boarding. Dongzhimen center is very huge as I heard.

Beijing-Capital International Airport's Area

Btw, I've been surfing the net for ages and I still can't find the total land area for Beijing Capital International Airport. Do any of you guys know?
