Airport World - Joe Bates
Hong Kong International Airport’s impressive Sky Bridge opened today, allowing passengers to conveniently travel between Terminal 1 and its Satellite Concourse (T1S).
The latest addition to the airport’s infrastructure is 200-metres long and 28-metres high and equipped with escalators and automated walkways.
Spanning a taxiway at the airport, Sky Bridge is the world’s longest airside bridge that allows Code F aircraft such as the A380 to pass under it.
With the exterior glazing and glass floor installed on the bridge, the airport notes that “passengers can enjoy the extraordinary experience of an aircraft passing beneath their feet”.
With the unique panoramic view across the airport, Sky Bridge offers the highest view point of the airport for passengers. An observation deck, a catering outlet and a shop on the Sky Bridge will open in phases.
