When the new international terminal at DFW is done, they'll be up to 150 gates....

Anyone know what ATL and ORD have?

The NW world gateway opened with 97, but will have 122 when construction is completed in the summer of '06.
When the north Terminal is bult there will be an additional 29.

I am not sure what the count is with the old Smith and Berry terminals, I am sure FRA or LHR is muuuuch bigger.

ORD has about 173 gates.

I'm not sure about ATL.

I'm thinking ORD has the most, just a hunch...if the full expansion goes through (the one including the two new terminals), ORD will have well over 200 gates. Then again, one mustn't forget that UA likes to park 3 RJs at one gate.  Big grin

It didn't have the most gates. but it SEEMED like it had the most gates.

Probably not many of you remember the terminal at MKC.

It was built in a straight line.

Gate 2 was what seemed like 2 miles away from gate 54.

If you remember the movie "Airplane"...when the airplane has finally come in for an emergency landing....and the person on the PA system is broadcasting "TransAmerican Flight , now arriving gate 34...35....36.... (as the plane careens down the runway).....

That is EXACTLY what MKC was like.

World-wide, or in the US? In one terminal, or all terminals combined?

According to ATL's website, ATL has roughly 154 gates, though that will increase with the new International Terminal Expansion and South Terminal.

I indeed DO remember the terminal at Kansas City downtown (MKC). Wasn't that a masterpiece of 1930's/40's design! I used to fly in on a CO 707 and connect to a BN BAC-111 to SHV many times. It was quite a walk from one part of the terminal to another. They didn't even have piers, the gates were right next to the ticket counters.
I am glad that at least they didn't tear the building down. Maybe in the future it could be restored.

T5 will bring another 50 or so gates to LHR, some of which are coming online already in use for remote parking. That will take LHR to somewhere between 180 and 200. Infact the gate numbering goes well beyond that due to all T1 gates being 1**, T2 2** etc.

Sirawat,

SIN has way more gates than BKK. I am not sure of the exact numbers, but from being in each, I am nearly 100% certain that SIN has more gates. I am assuming by gates that you mean jetway gates....or do we want to include remote parking stands too? I still think that SIN has more with remote parking stands.

Not sure what FRA has, but unless you count the remote parking stands, it is way below some of the other airports listed here. My three guesses would be: ORD or ATL. I would also consider LHR upon completion of T5.

Here is another related topic. What airport has the most gates per runways?

At the moment LHR has an total of 180 gates, not including remotes stands:

T1:90
T2:15
T3:42
T4:23

However, when T5 arrives, there will be an extra 50 or so gates bringing the total number to around 230, I'm sure LHR will have the most number of jetbridge gates and possibly even the most gates at all.

Although, I'm sure you'd be able to fit a lot more gates in at Incheon and Denver!

At MKC the last gate which was furthest north, was gate 25 used by DL in the late 60's.

just a small correction, T4 only has 22 gates with jetways. Gates 15/16 are actually just one jetway, but the stand position (415/416) is different depending on aircraft size and hence the double numbering. Also gates 1A and 1B are used to as coaching departures for the remote stands.

DALfanNYC...At DTW, the G(Mesaba), F, D, and E along with eight or nine gates of the C have been bulldozed. The entire terminal Northwest used is to be leveled soon and a new 27 or 29 gate terminal will be built for all other carriers at DTW. DL is suppose to join Continental in the B concourse of the new Northwest building this year. The B and C are being expended as I type.

I would guess, MIA would be right up there on the Multiple number of Gates.
And, I believe MIA is the largest single building facility. With the acception of the E concourse satellite, all of MIA's Gates are divided into 8 finger like concourses. Now, Gates will take a drastic upswing when the new super sized American airlines world port is completed. And, J concourse will house the Star Alliance carriers. This state of the art addition should be up and operating in the near future. And to think, back in the 70's MIA was going to be dwarfed and overshadowed by a giant super airport in the Everglades.

IAH now has 130 numbered gates. However, there are several that have A and B type set ups (i.e., gate 6A and 6B). Additionally, Terminal B has tons of remote stands for the Continental Express setup.

Terminal A: 26 gates
Terminal B: 32 gates plus remote stands
Terminal C: 34 gates
Terminal D: 12 gates
Terminal E: 24 gates

I, too, am curious about the number of gates at JFK.

Sounds like Heathrow is #1 with O'Hare being #2.

In the future, it seems to be the new Jebel Ali Airport in Dubai. There is a news item on Yahoo! this morning (in German, I post the link below for those that can read German):

- six parallel runways
- 370 gates able to dock A380
- capacity of 120 million pax p.a.
- first phase of project to enter service in 2007
- originally planned only for next decade, but growth of cargo traffic of between 20% and 30% per year makes current DXB crowded
