Reply To: Which airports should be completely demolished and rebuilt?Back to Forum
I agree with the the sentiments about airports being turned into shopping centres. But that doesn’t mean the airport has to be demolished, it just means the layout within the building has to be changed which is not difficult to do most of the time.
Of the airports mentioned so far, I would second LTN, CDG T1 and IAD.
As to LHR, I don’t have the problem with the terminals and general layout which generally works quite well. The issue is one of capacity and knocking and rebuilding doesn’t deal with the lack of space. Any new version will have the same capacity issue.
