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.

From tunisian forum Syphax Airlines | Official Thread

Syphax is an ambitious company, which entend to shake the historic Tunisair. The base in in Sfax (2nd largest city) but intercontinental flights will part from Tunis.

1 weekly flight between Tunis and Beijing

This is a network for the next 5 years. The 1st A330 has been received. The company habs been founded in 2011. So this is maybe for 2014 or 2015.

Strange that nobody notice this information.

Syphax Airlines

23 April 2013, 12:10 GMT | By Rebecca Spong

The new Tunisian airline is targeting capital markets to fund its expansion

Structure

Syphax Airlines was launched in March 2012 as Tunisia’s first privately owned airline, and its first flight took place on 29 April 2012. The carrier was set up by Mohamed Frikha, an entrepreneur, who established Tunisian software engineering company Telnet in 1994.

Frikha used money raised from Telnet’s initial public offering in April 2011, along with an approximate 20 per cent stake from Telnet to set up the airline. It was launched with TD10m ($6.3m) of capital.

Syphax Airlines’ main base is at the airport of Sfax Thyna in the south of Tunisia. It also operates flights from Djerba and Tunis. Currently, it flies to Paris and Marseille in France, Tripoli and Sebha in Libya, Istanbul in Turkey, and a newly launched destination of Casablanca in Morocco. The airline was permitted to fly from Djerba and Sfax from April 2012, but had to wait until October of that year for an operating licence to fly from Tunis-Carthage airport, when it launched its Paris service, landing at Charles de Gaulle airport.

The delay in the Tunis airport licence was in part due to resistance from national carrier Tunisair and its reluctance to compete with the new airline over the same routes.

Operations

Syphax Airlines was established with a fleet of just two Airbus 319s purchased for $55m. The aircraft were named Karama and Hurriya, meaning dignity and freedom, in reference to the country’s 2011 revolution.

In January 2013, the airline placed a further order with Airbus for three A320NEOs (new engine option) and three A320CEOs (current engine option). This agreement will bring the airline’s fleet up to eight aircraft. The A320NEO family of aircraft will come into service from 2015 and incorporate latest-generation engines and large ‘sharklet’ wing-tip devices, which aim to deliver up to 15 per cent in fuel savings.

Syphax Airlines positions itself as a hybrid between the low-cost airline model and a conventional carrier. It aims to offer reduced ticket prices, but also the services found on regular airlines. The airline provides charter services, but most of its business is focused on regular commercial traffic.

At the end of 2012, non-charter passenger traffic accounted for 57.6 per cent of passenger revenues, with 72,248 passengers transported by the airline that year. Charter activity represented 42.4 per cent of passenger revenues, with 45,323 passengers transported.

In the first half of 2012, the airline recorded a turnover of TD3.2m and a loss of TD9.4m. The company’s capital stood at TD601,000.

The carrier runs three flights a week between Sfax and Paris, as well as a daily service between Tunis and Paris. Its Sfax-Tripoli route is serviced four times a week and there is a twice-weekly flight from Sfax to Sebha. It also operates two flights a week to Istanbul from Sfax.

Ambitions

Syphax Airlines is aiming to carve out a greater market share and challenge the dominance of national carrier, Tunisair. The airline was established in 1948, and in 2011, it transported 3.2 million passengers. By contrast, Syphax Airlines has about 1.2 per cent of the market.

One of Frikha’s aims is to use the airline to boost the Sfax region’s economy by generating new employment opportunities.

This year, Syphax Airlines is looking to increase the number of destinations it services. It has recently announced new flights to Casablanca in Morocco and Jeddah in Saudi Arabia. It also aims to launch twice-weekly flights to the Ivory Coast and Burkina Faso, as well as a weekly service to Beijing, and flights to Montreal, New York and [B]Rio de Janeiro.

The airline is also looking to list on the Tunis bourse to raise funds for its expansion. On 18 April, it secured approval from the Financial Market Council to be admitted to the Alternative Investment Market on the Tunis Stock Exchange.

Il est à rappeler que Syphax Airlines a été créée en septembre 2011. Son premier vol commercial a été effectué le 29 avril 2012 avec l’inauguration de la ligne Sfax/Paris, marquant ainsi le démarrage officiel de l’activité opérationnelle de la société en mode régulier, suivie des vols Tunis-Paris, Djerba-Paris et Sfax-Istanbul.
Translation summary: Syphax Airlines will launch its new route to Beijing from Tunis on january 11th 2014.
