Is it possible to add something more to the Title such as WLA (World's Largest Airport), WBA (World's Biggest Airport) or WLAT (World's Largest Airport Terminal), WBAT (World's Biggest Airport Terminal) just like the title of Burj Dubai (WTB - World's Tallest Building)?

Such a wonderful airport, just wish people using the facility take care of it, like that father and son eating burgers.

I hope they keep up maintenance so that it won't look all worn in in a couple of years...

@ Sen

Why? 'Cause there are no Japanese or South Korean airline company currently using Beijing-Capital International Airport's Terminal 3?

quite disappointing since this is just a bigger version of HKIA
Even the signs and the "Int'l/Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan" stickers are kind of identical to HKIA's

I think its quite appropirate to have Japanese and Korean language signs at a major airport like BCIA. Japan and Korea are our closest neighbours and a large proportion (if I'm not mistaken) of people using the airport will be Japanese and Koreans.

Uh...how, in the hell, is that "dissapointing"?

I mean, Hong Kong International Airport is always within the top three at all best-airports-in-the-world-list since it opened in 1996-97.

is it just me, or does this look like a scenery from the 70`s ?

I am just waiting for Austin Powers to come around the corner.
Nevertheless... the airport itself is awesome.

I just wonder why they keep those unrepresantative Terminals 1 and 2 in operation, and dont tear them down.

I agree to City Architect's observation.

I can't deny that i'st HUGE and also looks grand, but it fails to surprise me. Indeed it's just another typical example of current generation of airport terminals that has evolved since the nineties of the last century. The pioneers of this so-called "big shed" concept of airport terminal are Stansted (London) and Kansai (Japan). The concept matures when HKIA was completed in 1998. After than all major new airport terminals are more or less a development or variation of the same concept, which have been well received by the public.

Therefore Beijing T3 is no exception, another big shed. The similarities with HKIA can be explained partly by the fact that both are designed by the same world-renowned architect, Lord Norman Foster. Another explanation is that T3 had a tight time schedule from design to completion and has to be ready for operation before the 2008 Olympic. Therefore Beijing authority chose a design that has been already been proven successful in Hong Kong.

I'm examining the photos posted in this thread to see if T3 has addressed a few deficiencies of the HKIA design or not.

Judging from the first set of pics, is the inter-terminal shuttle rubber tired?

bombardier's automated people mover technology. Yes, rubber tires.


And to those who are disappointed, well, I disagree. And many people are jealous because their airport isn't the best in the world anymore. You know who you are. =-))
