Abstract: Fire safety strategy for airport terminals will be proposed in this paper. The local airport terminal is taken as an example. Special features of airport terminals will be outlined. The retail areas are identified as places with higher fire risk. Standards, codes and design guidelines used overseas are reviewed and compared with the local codes. Based on the study, fire safety strategy is suggested to have four parts: passive building construction for fire safety; active fire protection systems or fire services installation; fire safety management; control of risk factors. All four parts will be discussed in this paper. Suggestions are made to give a fire safe airport terminal.
