Which Airports Are To Be Expanded?

Tue Sep 30, 2003 4:22 am

Of the airports I've been to this year, most are going to be expanded.

FRA - new runway
WAW - new terminal
PRG - expansion of terminal
VIE - new terminal
MAD- new terminal + runway.

AMS has a new runway added, LHR is set to have Terminal 5.

Anything else? (I'm sure of that)
How much A is there is Airliners Net ? 0 or nothing ?

ORD is attempting a major expansion. The six runways will be configured and two additional runways will be built. There has been talk of either building 2 new terminals in the current complex or one new terminal on the west side of the field, along with an interstate on the west side of the field with access into the airport.

ATL is building a fifth runway and a new international terminal on the east side of the field.

Plus the expansion of the international terminal begun a couple of months ago, it should be ready by December 31st 2003, it includes a whole new check-in area, parking lot, luggage claim area and immigration facilities.

A lot of talk of "modernization" at LAX. Mayor Hahn seems to have made this his legacy target. His plans call for a centralized check-in with above ground trains to the terminals. They will also be reconfiguring runways. This is all in an effort to bring capacity up to 80 million pax per year.

MUC just opened a 114-gate terminal in June, and apron 3 in August.

the 3rd runway is supposed to be built before 2010.

Berlin plans to expand (read: tear down and rebuild) SXF to a modern international airport.

TPA is going to expand through the demolition of the existing Airside C, and the construction of a new, larger facility for Southwest. Here's a link to an article about in the St. Petersburg Times:

http://pqasb.pqarchiver.com/sptimes/index.html?ts=1064875429

Airside C's previous tenants were Air Canada, Delta, and TWA. Delta and Air Canada have moved to the new Airside E. The TWA/American merger took place before the new facility was complete.

Expansion is underway at RSW. I believe the new terminal is to be completed in 2004 or 2005.

Philly is suppose to expand a bit. Either they plan on adding a new runway and expanding the 2 smaller runways. Or they just plane on changing up all the runways and making it look somewhat like ATL.
