Tianjin Binhai International Airport
Tianjin Binhai Authority
3 Master Plan Targets were defined for the long term development of Tianjin Binhai Airport in China: short-term 6 mppa (2015), long-term 20 mppa (2035) and an ultimate capacity of 40 mppa. The development of a suitable master plan is a sensitive balance between preserving the long-term potential of the airport and responding efficiently to the short-term requirements of the airport and airline industry. The initial phase of development was the creation of a 6 mppa terminal with a frontal concourse, located perpendicular to the runways, capable of extension sideways to provide additional capacity in later phases. For development phases beyond 20 mppa, a central satellite with automated people mover (APM) linked to the expanded terminal was recommended.
Following the success of the original submission we were requested by Tianjin Binhai International Airport Authority to design an additional terminal to provide 60,000 m2, capable of future expansion to 100,000 m2 to meet the anticipated forecast passenger demands.
