German translation:(Flughafen)terminal / Flughafengebäude
Explanation:
I'd say that this is the whole building, so it's not the same as gate, which is called Flugsteig in German

thank you. We think of terminals as different buildings at the airport, and the terminals are divided into gates. So it must be flughafen and then flugsteig!?!
