Thanks! It is huge.

Barcelona new terminal building is 525,000 square metres, the biggest single terminal building in Europe.

Check its construction here:

I believe this title will be handed back to HKG considering Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International Airport will more than likely be partly closed down due to bad construction work and the taxi-ways sinking due to the airport being built on swamp land.....

Awesome photos. I love the glass bridges. Bangkok made a MASSIVE mistake by not using them.

Beijing-Capital's T3 has higher ceiling height than I thought it had.

The height of the ceiling is higher than I thought it was.

This is the first time that I realized that those glass-walled aero-bridges were actually really tall in height by themselves (I've always known they were two-storeys tall but I never knew that each storey had high ceilings.).

@ celestar0

Celestar0, what do you suppose those things above the roof are? Are those trees on the far end of the runway?

Those are trees beyond the airport boundary...a matter of angle.

I'm flying back this May. It's too bad it will not be finished that time.
