Top 3 Beautiful Yachting Airports

Madrid (MAD) Barajas Airport Terminal

Flight delays are tedious, but waiting to head off on a luxury sailing charter holiday is a bit more bearable while waiting inside a beautiful, well-designed airport terminal.

 

FAVORITE AIRPORT TERMINALS

While most airports are merely utilitarian in layout and many travelers too harried to pay attention to the design, more and more cities are spending lavishly to build artistic, captivating terminals to serve as their city’s gateway.

Here are our three favorite airport terminals in the world

First, Terminal 4, Barajas Airport, Madrid

What makes it special?  Terminal 4 features colorful pylons supporting a bamboo-lined roof.  The design creates a series of daylight-filled canyons.  Both arriving and departing passengers pass through one spectacular space.

BALEARIC YACHT CHARTER GUESTS

This airport is designed to handle 35 million passengers a year.  Barajas Airport is one of Europe’s dominant air-hubs. It is an excellent gateway for Balearic Island yacht charters

Second, TWA Terminal, John F. Kennedy Airport, New York City

The use of classic architecture is timeless.  TWA terminal at JFK is 60’s era, yet still sets a standard for today’s designers. The poured-concrete swoops and curves express the excitement of air travel and the romance of flight.

THIRD, TERMINAL 3, BEIJING INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

The 2-mile long Terminal 3 in Beijing is of the largest buildings in the world.  It is designed to represent a dragon.  The architects color-coded the ceiling to filter in red and yellow zones of sunlight.

The traditionally Chinese color scheme heighten the building’s dramatic effect. It also helps passengers navigate through the building.

HONORABLE MENTION AIRPORTS

  • The light tunnel at Chicago O’Hare’s United Airlines terminal
  • Artist Michele Oka Doner’s sea life-embedded floor at Miami international Airport, Concourse A,.  This earned a cameo in the George Clooney movie, Up in the Air.
