Airport Angles

When we stopped over at the Charles de Gaulle airport from South Africa a few years ago, I noticed were a lot of metal angles in the new section of the airport.

The angles were evident when we looked outside to do a little plane watching.

We had not seen a view like this at another airport. It looked very modern with all the glass and metal that had been used.

Even the angles of the ceiling showcased the trusses. Though, of course, some were covered with billboards:

We did not enjoy our stopover in this French airport: there was not much to do except sit and wait. We read a little and ate a snack. Luckily the wait was only five hours – then we boarded the plane for the next stage of our journey.

Have you visited any interesting airports?

  1. the metal angles and loved the LINES – yeah.
    great shots – and my least favorite airport comes to mind – and that is the Atlanta one – it is way to big and crowded – but lots do on a layover – 🙂

  2. These photos really capture that feeling of dead time of being in transit – the second image is particular reflects the empty, almost soul-less feeling of international airports. This particular one looks even worse than most – though my personal pet hate is the airport at Abu Dhabi.

    1. I have not been to Abu Dhabi – we avoided it because the wait time was 12 hours! As you say, the airports have a soulless feeling to them and they are places I wish to spend as little time in as possible.
