The Xiamen Livery looks great in the picture. Especially on the 757. Can't wait to see it on a 787 soon.

Azerbaijan Airlines to open Baku-Beijing route in September

BAKU, July 12 (Xinhua) -- Azerbaijan's national flag carrier, Azerbaijan Airlines (AZAL), said Friday it would launch a direct flight route linking Baku to Beijing in September. "All matters have already been agreed on and the flight will be opened in September," a AZAL spokesman said.

Flights will be operated by Airbus A-340 and Boeing 767 aircraft, twice a week, on Tuesdays and Fridays, the spokesman said.

AZAL originally planned to launch the direct flight in May, but it was delayed for some reasons.

Together with Chinese partner-airlines, AZAL would also offer transfer service on Chinese domestic routes as from Beijing to Guangzhou, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Hangzhou, as well as to several cities in East and Southeast Asia, the spokesman said.

Hong Kong media is reporting a man in a wheelchair was handing out leaflets at the international arrivals area. He was confronted by security personnel and he detonated the bomb. He is alive but one of his arms will be amputated.

Ah ... the design of the terminals and runway of the Daxing airport are shown on the map above. I think it should be correct given that the terminals and runways shown for T3 and T2 of BCIA is correct.

Flights diverted to ease Beijing congestion
25 August 2013
Shanghai Daily

MORE flights between Shanghai and Beijing should be on time from next week, as China’s civil aviation authority is freeing up airspace over the capital.

From Wednesday, some 60 flights that would normally pass over Beijing are being rerouted to avoid the capital’s airspace.

This will help relieve air traffic congestion around Beijing and benefit aircraft using Beijing Capital International Airport, according to national air traffic management officials.

Congestion has been cited as a major reason for delays to flights between Shanghai and Beijing — China’s busiest flight route.

“The on-time rate for flights to Beijing will be improved with this latest measure,” an official with the air traffic management bureau with the Civil Aviation Administration of China said.

More than 60 flights that would have passed over Beijing every day will change their routes to give way to the 1,200 daily flights to and from Beijing Capital International Airport, bureau officials said.

However, the change of routes will impact fuel consumption, with diverted jets expected to require 10 percent more.

For instance, flights between Shenyang, capital of the northeastern Liaoning Province, to Xi’an, capital of Shaanxi Province in the northwest previously flew over Beijing as its shortest route, but now face a longer journey.

If effective in Beijing, the policy may be rolled out in cities such as Shanghai and Guangzhou, the official added.

This is not the only recent effort to improve punctuality.

Earlier this month on a trial basis, eight major Chinese airports — including Shanghai’s Pudong and Hongqiao airports and Beijing’s airport — were made free of all air traffic restrictions for takeoffs before 10am.

Air traffic restrictions, often due to military exercises or if the destination airports are simply too busy, are major causes of flight delays in China.

However, under the trial, aircraft coming in to land still face delays, “stacking up” and circling until given a landing slot.

Some critics said that policy will see neighboring airports hit by more flight delays, as the eight airports will receive priority over them.

I have 2 questions, #1 is about what time is the new Daxing airport starts construction. #2 Capital is still going to be used by the public more in the first few years then Daxing because people will need to get use to that right, but Daxing would catch up and beat it right?

Kind of hard to believe that the solution is so simple and requires just the rerouting of 5% (60 of 1200) flights over the BJS airspace.

Yes, that's right. Daxing will be built to handle a capacity of 120-200 million passengers per year. PEK's max capacity is 80 million. Not only will Daxing eventually surpass PEK, it will also surpass ATL as the busiest airport in the world.

However, having said that, I find that the reason that PEK is busy is because many flights into China are hubbed at this airport. i.e. there are barely any flights that go from Europe to XIY (Xian) and almost everyone transit via PEK. Over the years this will change as more and more airlines establish direct routes to the 2nd and 3rd tier Chinese cities.

Well, liberalizing the military's grip on China's airspace is the ultimate long-term solution.

The 120-200 million pax capacity is still an estimate at this point. According to the general director of construction Yao Yabo the Daxing airport will have a capacity of 45 million when it's opened in 2018, and grow to 70 million by 2025. That's the only confirmed number so far, there is no solid number on how large the airport will eventually become.
