The never-built Hamburg Kaltenkirchen Airport was meant to be a major international hub serving northern Germany. The plan proposed an airport with two 13,000-foot (4,000-meter) parallel runways laid out in an east-west direction, with the passenger terminals located between the runways. If needed, the runways could be extended to an astonishing 19,291 feet (5,880 meters). Two more runways could be added in the future, providing a total of four parallel runways. In Europe today, only Paris de Gaulle Airport could would have matched its runway capacity. The master plan envisaged the construction of six semi-circular terminals, providing a total of 80 gates served by boarding bridge, and 40 remote stands. If required in the far future, there was even space provided for the construction of a seventh and eighth passenger terminal.
