Skift Take

Wild & futuristic enough that someone with lots of money like Qatar or Abu Dhabi may just bet on this design, or adopt some version of this.

Amsterdam based design studio Büro für MEHR has created a drive through concept for an airport passenger terminal that could change the way airports process traffic. The concept offers a significant reduction of the size of an airport’s layout to simplify ground traffic and significantly reduce its environmental impact.

The new concept sends aircrafts through a mandatory pathway, much a like a carwash but separated into three divisions: arrival, servicing and departure. The eight-lane Drive Through Airport prototype has the capability to process a maximum of 48 airplanes every 15 minutes.
