WORLD'S MOST EXPENSIVE AIRPORT
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What is the most expensive airport in the world?
Airports today are far more than
just places to catch a flight or connect to one. These vast structures today
take up acres and acres of land and within them you can find not only passenger
gates and check-in areas but restaurants, spas, gyms, and just about any other
amenity you could hope to find in some of the nicest hotels around the world!
The degree of luxury and number of features of course varies from airport to
airport but it’s no secret that some of these traveler-friendly places have gone
the extra mile both in providing amenities and with just having the space and
the capacity to fly such a huge amount of people to all four corners of the
world. And because they’re such grand spaces, they are also expensive places. So
just what is the most expensive airport in the world?
Because of the $20 billion dollars it cost to
construct, the Hong Kong International Airport, located in Hong Kong, was the
most expensive airport to ever be built. In addition to this title, which landed
this magnificent air space in the Guinness Book of World Records, it is also the
world’s busiest airport with 47 million passengers in 2007 alone. But the HKIA
will only enjoy the title of world’s most expensive airport for a limited time.
Put the words ‘most expensive’ before anything and
you’ll soon find that the city of Dubai is itching to get their hands on it to
top whatever it is and make it bigger and better. The world’s most expensive
airport is no different. Dubai is currently in the planning stages of creating
the world’s most expensive airport which when completed, will have an
unbelievable number of features including: an airfield that has the capacity to
fit the world’s largest jumbo-jets, hotels of course, shopping malls, two
18-hole golf courses, and an entire residential city where 750,000 people will
be able to call home. Talk about taking the phrase ‘living at the airport’ to a
whole new meaning! The project is to be called the Dubai World Center
International and is estimated to cost a whopping $33 billion. However, until
the year 2017, Hong Kong International has nothing to worry about as it’s not
until then that DWCI is expected to open.
