That's one long terminal! I wouldn't want to catch a connecting flight leaving from a gate on the other side of that terminal, but I'm sure there are "speedy" ways of getting from one end to the other.

这是我国目前投资建设的最大机场。工程总投资250亿元,超过了浦东机场和新白云机场的投资规模。3号航站楼建筑面积90多万平方米,新增机位99个;新建一条长3800米,宽60米的跑道,届时,世界上最大的飞机空客A380能够顺利起降。此外,新建北货运区,相应配套建设场内交通系统,以及供水、供电、供气、供油、通导、航空公司基地等设施。根据设计能力,到2015年,首都机场将实现满足年旅客吞吐量6000万人次的目标,比现有能力增加1倍。

这是一场浩大的工程。为了建设新机场,征用了2.22多万亩土地,搬迁了9个村庄,共涉及1.2万人。工程必须于2007年底前建成,确保2008年奥运会之前投入正常运营。

Having a huge long terminal like that is reminiscent of DTW here in the states, only on crack.

Looking to the construction pics, it seems that Beijing T3 is divided to 3 terminals?
If so I guess Suvarnbhumi airport is larger because it has more than 530,000m^2 for one single terminal.

What do you think?

Judging from both pictures, comparing to the length of runways, the constructure area of BKK airport can't be 530,000m^2, if beijing T3 is 900,000m2. It looks BKK terminal is only 1/3 or 1/4 to Beijing one. It may due to different references to the sizes quoted above.

Well the new BKK would still be smaller than HKIA according to some sources because HKIA has currently increased the terminal size.

Well.. maybe the HKIA has currently increased the terminal size, but it will no longer count as a single terminal. Also that giant terminal of the new Beijing's is divided into 3 buildings(including 2 satellite buildings), therefor the new BKK airport will still hold the title of the world's largest single terminal, besides, they are now going to start the process of constructing the 2nd terminal right after the completion of the 1st terminal, so all together the BKK airport will still be the biggest in the world even bigger than that of Beijing's or any other airport(including their future expansion).

so please stop claimming to hold the world's single largest terminal, because it will not be - not the terminal and not the the whole size of the terminals put together. This thread is not a VS thread, it's pure measurement and figures here.
