@ macgyver

That is true, if it ever gets built.

And besides, Beijing-Capital International Airport ain't the largest aircraft-handling capacity in land area anyway. They only got the largest single airport terminal complex.

@ foxmulder

Well, duh! What am I supposed to say? Just: "They only got the largest single airport terminal complex." What's so wrong with saying ONLY!

Well, anyway, I really do LOVE this airport terminal, okay.

Aesthetically, it's more appealing as well.
haha really don't think the shop doors should pose such a big concern. PEK T1 and T2 are using the roll-up screens and nothing will change in such a brand new terminal. What u see in the picture are some isolated cases where they still use such traditional glass doors (maybe for certain small VIP lounges for some premium customers of a bank, for example).

New Beijing airport terminal holds last and largest drill


BEIJING -- Beijing Capital International Airport (BCIA) on Saturday held its last and largest drill before the trial operation of its newly-built No. 3 terminal in preparation for a passenger surge during the upcoming Olympics.

The trial operation is set for February 29.

More than 8,000 "passengers" participated in the three-hour drill, checking in more than 7,000 pieces of luggage on 146 domestic and international "flights".

The main purpose of the drill was to test procedures of departure, arrival and transfer, as well as VIP security maintenance, organizers said.

Most participants were university students and other volunteers selected by an online survey. The number of flights involved was nearly double that in the previous drill and was close to the estimated daily average expected when the terminal goes into operation.

Six airlines will use Terminal 3 (T3), including Sichuan Airlines, Shandong Airlines, Qatar Airways, Qantas Airways, British Airways and El Al Israel Airlines.

With the opening, airport shuttles will stop at all three of the airport's terminals. For passengers who drive private cars or take a taxi, the southern lane of the airport expressway leads directly to T3.

A new metro line will also be completed and put into operation pre-Olympics to provide better convenience for travelers.

BCIA will arrange transfer busses connecting each terminal.

Upon T3's operation, the airport will have the capacity to carry 82 million passengers annually, against the present 35 million.

The new terminal, which started construction in March 2004, covers a floor space of 1 million square meters.

The expansion includes a third runway that can be used for jumbo jets, 125 more plane parking bays, as well as affiliated buildings, a new cargo zone and areas for special planes and private planes.

The expansion, which cost 27 billion yuan (3.65 billion US dollars), covers 1,467 hectares, 1.6 times larger than the former space.

The third runway became operational in October and greatly eased the traffic volume at the country's busiest airport.

China is also upgrading several standby airports near Beijing for the August Olympics by renovating terminals, enlarging tarmacs, lengthening runways and improving services.

So the airport will accommodate 82,000,000 passengers a year. And what are the standby airports being upgraded near Beijing for the Olympic Games?

Foster's Beijing airport opens


By Martin Spring


The largest building in the world opens ahead of schedule and in time for the 2008 Olympics

Terminal 3 at Beijing Capital International Airport, the world's largest building, has opened after four years of design and construction work.

Completed ahead of schedule for the 2008 Olympics, it is designed to be the gateway to Beijing for participating athletes. Its aerodynamic roof and dragon-like form celebrate the flight.

The red, orange and yellow interior palatte evokes traditional Chinese colours.

Located between the existing eastern runway and the future third runway, Terminal 3 and the Ground Transportation Centre enclose a floor area of about 1.3 million square metres, mostly under one roof.

The first building to break the one million square meter barrier, it will accommodate an estimated 50 million passengers a year by 2020.
Norman Foster said:"This new terminal is the largest and most advanced airport building in the world – a celebration of the thrill and poetry of flight.

"A gateway to Beijing, it communicates a unique sense of place, its dragon-like form evoking traditional Chinese colours and symbols."

Mouzhan Majidi, chief executive of Foster + Partners and lead achitect for the project and said: "The new terminal at Beijing Capital has been designed, built and commissioned, within a mere four year period at a scale and quality which is awesome.

"It is a true gateway to the 2008 Olympics – and we are delighted that it has opened in good time for this world event."
