Here is a link that shows the new Baiyun International Airport in Guangzhou (CAN). Notice the pix were taken on the opening day (Aug 5). Now how do you guys like it?

Very impressive. I really didn't expect anything less. The openess and architecture is what I've come to expect from new Asian airports.

The control tower is quite interesting too.

Very nice. . .and very nice, large "windowed" walks.

Thanks for the link.

P.S. -- What was all the hoopla concerning the China Southern 735 in one of the pics?

That was the last the flight out of the 72 year-old airport, with people waving farewell to the flight and the airport; the one below it was the last arriving flight into the old airport from Shanghai.

Beautiful. Looks like a fantastic facility, just what an airport should be.

Very nice looking terminal. It looks like its set to be one of the best in Asia. Is it just me or does it seem to have a striking resemblance to Incheon?

I agree with Hz747300... I wish I had a reason to go there. That looks like one of the most beautiful airports I've ever seen. It almost beats the snot out of HKG, but not quite. Hopefully I'll pass through there one day soon  Smile!

Nice to see new construction in a part of the world where, Narita notwithstanding, new airports can still be built with limited public opposition. I'd like to see a project of this caliber get underway in the United States today. The closest thing to a new airport we've got is the O'Hare expansion, and that's not even a for-sure thing yet.

(Sighs and longs for the days where a new US airport could be proposed and built in just ten years.)

Kudos to Guangzhou. Looks like a facility to be proud of.

It seems that my earlier post was deleted due to an image error and I am still having that problem, so, simply: "It is very nice, and I love those glass jetways."

At first glance, I thought I was looking at picture of PVG (Pudong Apt in Shanghai)... but realised that it wasn't after closer scrutiny.

It definitely is light years ahead of the old Baiyun International Terminal, which was dingy, old and badly laid out.

Anyone knows what is going to happen to the old terminal? How close is this new terminal from the old terminal?




There's always a better way to fly...

Amazing. Looks great!!!! So open. Must be the pride of Southern China.

Well done!!

PS: I guess planespotting or photographing in the airport is not a huge problem. Am I right?

Best,

Quite an impressive structure indeed. I also thought it resembled a bit like Incheon too, beautiful nevertheless.

Cheers,

Hey it looks a lot like DXB too. Maybe even more one T3 comes up.
Anyone knows how many bays are there? And what is the MCT?
Thanks
