Airports

overcast 75 °F

International airports grow bigger and better with each trip I take. Here are a few pictures of the airports I visited:

Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport is the largest I have ever seen and has ceilings that must be 100 feet high. Last year it serviced 37 million visitors.

Hong Kong Chek Lap Kok International Airport is fairly new and is built on an island that was flattened and the surrounding sea filled-in to build the runway. It features a multi-story control tower and operates 24-hrs a day.

Delhi Indira Gandhi International Airport currently handles 25 million travelers each year and is currently expanding to handle 100 million by 2030.
