Where would a third runway be built? There seems to be only enough space for one more in the island, parallel to rwy 10/28 (or even another short one parallel to 15/33 crossing 10/28), but right where it should go there is RG's GIG VEM maintenance facility.
There seems to be enough space for a terminal on that corner where rwy 10/28 passes near the terminals, but that would take the space from where I imagine a third runway would begin/end.
Reclaiming land from the Guanabara bay for a rwy would be an environmentalists nightmare and I doubt it would ever happen.
I'm interest in hearing any inputs,
