Not only was there another major terminal building (two actually as there’s also a smaller satellite terminal building, T4S), but another two runways were added. Now aircrafts take off and land during the day at an average rate of one every 30 seconds. Terminal 4 ranks as one of the world’s largest airport terminals, measured by building area. The airport as a whole is the 4th largest in Europe, and the 10th largest in the world.
