Beijing’s Crazy Big Airport – and Terminal 3

May 9, 2017 — Leave a comment

In other blogs I have written about the Beijing’s Capital Airport — more specifically, terminal 3. Terminal 3 is the new section built for the 2008 Olympic Games, and it is as impressive as the Olympic Games were that were held in Beijing.

Today I want to focus on the massive size of terminal 3. It has 3 main sections, with the terminal itself being the area for ticketing, checking in, exchanging money, restaurants, shops, and an area for claiming your luggage. Then there is one area for domestic flights, and another one for international flights. Would you like to know how they are all connected?

Farther than you can see, the train runs between the different areas of the terminal. As you can see in the top section of the photo above, there are also buses that service the areas.

There are bridges going over the train, and these are for motorized vehicles as well as pedestrians. By the way, the trains run on electricity, so they don’t produce any exhaust. This is wise, because when they pull into the terminal, nobody wants to inhale exhaust fumes.

Many things are large at terminal 3. Even the murals are huge, as you can see in the photo below!

If you ever have the opportunity to use terminal 3 at this airport, I think you will be impressed by it!

Have you ever flown into Beijing?
