Wow! The Coolest Looking Airports in the World

Posted by Cirrus Aviation on Jul 13, 2015 1:32:00 PM

Sometimes the most fun you’ll have flying is checking out the most eye-popping airports across the globe. Not even the classic urban railroad stations of the early 20th century can compare to these exhibits of architecture.

Beijing Capital International Airport

Completed for the 2008 Summer Olympics, Terminal 3 is a work of art while remaining efficient and functional. The enormous curving roof is designed to flood the interior with natural light, and the overall design of the building is modeled after the shape of a dragon.


Raleigh-Durham International Airport

This North Carolina airport also employs natural light with a “glass curtain” wall. Wooden trusses offer large, column-free open areas so the terminal doesn’t feel crowded.

JFK International Airport

The bending, curving facade of the former TWA terminal dates back to the vintage style of the early 1960s, although it has to be admired from the outside. The main hall is closed and may be renovated into a hotel.


Changi International

This airport may be one of Singapore’s best amusement parks. With a four-story spiral slide, 18-foot waterfall, indoor playground and a combination of indoor and outdoor space, Changi one of the most fun and entertaining places to catch a flight.


Madrid Barajas Airport

A corrugated roof and colors that change subtly from one area to the next make walking through this Spanish airport a treat.


Kansai International Airport

This Japanese airport was built on a man-made island in the Bay of Osaka. Designed with flowing curves and stainless steel panels, the structure is said to be visible from outer space.

The irony of having all of this impressive architecture is that travelers on-the-go and in a rush rarely have time to stop and appreciate their surroundings, no matter how brilliant. If you happen to find yourself in one of these airports, take a moment to soak in the atmosphere. Call (702)-472-9714 to book your private jet charter.
