At 28 me­tres above ground, it will al­low the largest A380 air­craft to taxi un­der­neath (func­tional, from an apron lo­gis­tics point of view), and will also be out­fit­ted with an ob­ser­va­tion deck, giv­ing plane spot­ters rare birds-eye views as the air­craft pass un­der­neath. F&B out­lets will also be in­stalled in the two tow­ers at ei­ther end of the 200-me­tre bridge to of­fer more life­style op­tions.

Ac­cord­ing to the Air­port Author­ity, sim­i­lar ex­pe­ri­en­tial re­vamps will be in­tro­duced to board­ing gates, with the pos­si­bil­ity of de­sign themes, smart tech­nol­ogy and green fea­tures.
