Beijing’s New Airport Open For Business

Sep 26, 2019 | News

Beijing’s new $11bn mega airport opened its doors yesterday, just a few days before China’s 70th anniversary celebrations.

President Xi Jinping formally opened Daxing International Airport (PKX) in the capital yesterday, which spans 700,000 square metres, or 98 football pitches.

Beijing’s existing airport is the world’s second busiest behind Atlanta and the new additional was needed to relieve overcapacity.

Daxing International is reported to be the world’s largest terminal in a single building and is expected to share a high percentage of the 170m passengers, which the city hopes to welcome by 2025.

Seven airlines began operations from the new airport yesterday, with the first flight being a China Southern Airlines A380 that took off at 16:23 local time.
