    You cant really say "Best Airport" because most the airports are unique and yet they serve the same purpose. Pero ky nastoryaan naman jud ni.. For me ang Airport sa Hong Kong.. Usa sa pinakadako na airport if not.. ang pinakadako jud.. plus advance technology..

    The new airport in Bangkok has just opened.. Judging from the pics that I saw, I guess it is for now the best airport in the world.

    The terminal is also the largest in asia.

    HERE ARE THE PICTURES:

    SUVARNABHUMI AIRPORT
    Thailand

    - Seven floors and a basement will give the terminal a total floor area of over 563,000m², (six million ft²) making it the largest in the world. An innovative roof trellis (one of the largest in the world) designed to shade the building against intense tropical sun and reduce the cost of air conditioning, will also be the largest of its kind.
    - The control tower is the tallest in Asia (or the world?)
    - The airport is now envisioned to become the passenger and logistics hub of the region alongside with the established ones like Singapore and Hongkong.
    - The airport features an underground highspeed rail.
    - The airport will be able to cope with 120 million passengers per year.


    Istorya.Net automatically resizes the pictures to 500 on the longest side, to view the original pictures, right-click on it, copy the image location and open it in another window.

    MORE INFO ABOUT Suvarnabhumi airport:



    Quoted from AIRPORT TECHNOLOGY
    NEW AIRPORT FACILITIES AND CAPACITY

    Suvarnabhumi Airport will operate as many as 76 flights per hour on two simultaneous runways; it will have 51 aircraft stands and 69 remote parking bays for wide-bodied aircraft and handle over three million tons of cargo annually. Facilities to be completed in the first phase include:

    A 563,000m² passenger terminal
    Two parallel runways, each 60m wide, one 3,700m long and the other 4,000m long with a runway separation distance of 2,200m
    Two parallel taxiways to facilitate simultaneous departures and arrivals
    120 parking bays (51 with contact gates and 69 remote gates) and five of these capable of accommodating the Airbus A380
    132m air traffic control tower (the tallest in Asia)
    Two five-storey parking garages with a capacity for 5,000 cars
    A 190,000m² cargo terminal
    Aircraft maintenance facilities: four fully equipped aircraft hangars to service up to 12 aircraft simultaneously
    Three separate catering facilities to cater for 65,000 airlines meals per day
    Landside road system: two two-lane roads inside the airport with a total length of 36km
    Utility system: 40,000m³ water tank; water treatment system for 12,000m³ of water per day; main transformer station for transforming electricity from 115kV to 24kV; eight garbage collection stations; seven telephone exchanges and two main exchanges
    Electrical railway system: a future extension will swiftly transport passengers to and from central Bangkok
    First-class hotel with 600 rooms operated by Accor Group under the Novotel brand
    Express freight facilities: one warehouse, one office building and12 aircraft stands
    PASSENGER TERMINAL COMPLEX

    Designed by the MJTA group of consultants, comprising Murphy Jahn Architecture and TAMS consultant (USA) and ACT Engineering consultant (Thailand), the passenger terminal complex (comprising the terminal itself as well as the concourse) covers an area of 182,000m².

    Seven floors and a basement will give the terminal a total floor area of over 563,000m², (six million ft²) making it the largest in the world. An innovative roof trellis (one of the largest in the world) designed to shade the building against intense tropical sun and reduce the cost of air conditioning, will also be the largest of its kind.

    There will be 360 check-in counters on ten check-in islands, all with connected baggage belts, and another 100 check-in counters not connected to the baggage belt system.

    The domestic and international halls are clearly separated with the second floor as a dedicated arrival hall and the fourth floor as a departure hall. The structure's main materials are steel and glass.

    MJTA's original design for the new terminal was criticised by Thai architects over a lack of 'Thai characteristics'. The government responded by forming a special committee to ensure that these concerns were addressed and that the building displayed evidence of the local cultural and artistic heritage.

    The contract for construction of the Suvarnabhumi Airport's passenger terminal complex was awarded to Italian-Thai Development (Ital-Thai) after a lengthy bidding period. Other companies involved include Obayashi Corp, Takenaka Corp, CM Kamchang and Freyssinet International.

    The concourse, with an area of 381,000m² is 40m wide, 3,213m long and 25m high. Its main structure is made of steel. Enclosure materials are locally manufactured glass and Teflon-coated fabric.

    The construction of the City Airport Terminal in Makkasan and a 28.6km high-speed rail link to the new airport started in July 2005 and are planned for completion in November 2007, although this deadline, too, seems unlikely to be met.

    The airport express, informally known as the Pink Line and operated jointly with SRT's planned Red Line commuter service, will connect with the BTS Sukhumvit Line and MRT Blue Line at Phaya Thai and Phetchaburi stations respectively, offering airport-bound passengers a fast 15-minute limited stop journey from the city.

    The entrance is very similar to Hongkong's -- a bridge exposes the arrival area below.






    Very tall control tower
