L[i/o]ving cities

In this post set about the size of the size of the largest airports in the world, I have already published the size of the European airports and the size of the North American airports. I will also publish the South American, African and Middle East airports in the next post (lately I have posted a resume about the efficiency of airports’ land use). Now it is the time for the Asian and Australian airports.

Here you have the information!

Tokyo Haneda International Airport (Japan): 1445 Ha

Hong Kong Chek Lap Kok International Airport (China): 1285 Ha

Shanghai Pudong International Airport (China): 3350 Ha

Beijing Internacional Airport (China): 2330 Ha

Mumbai Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (India): 575 Ha

New Delhi Indira Gandhi International Airport (India): 1770 Ha

Bangkok New International Airport (Thailand): 2980 Ha

Sydney International Airport (Australia): 820 Ha



  1. Hello ,
    I really liked your blog. The only thing is that Mexico is not part of South America, but North America, so you have it in the wrong category.

    Just saw the Shanghai Pudong Terminal 1 on a trip. I was impressed with the main hall especially, so huge and spacious. Standing in about the center, I could not see the end in either direction. Is it longer than 1000 meters?
    The lighting was just right, the air was clean and just the right temperature, and the acoustics were very good. An engineering marvel.
