Not developed and constructed, planned (and if the above report is true re-planned at a new location). Reason? The current Beijing capital airport greatly expanded capacity in 2008 with the T3 terminal building and direct airport express link. Now, only four years later, it is at capacity. Supposedly it will be hard to expand it much further, nothing compared with projected traffic growth.

High-speed rail can take some pressure off, but not all.

Or put pressure on.

Which high speed rail line is the Langfang airport on?
Beijing-Tianjin?
Beijing-Tianjin South-Shanghai?
Beijing-Shijiazhuang?

Can this visionary-looking airport become reality in some way or another? I mean, it's supposed to complement the existing Beijing Capital Airport, but I'm worried because it looks like at full buildout (w/ its 8 runways) it may end up replacing the Capital Airport altogether, which will never happen in real life.

I only have the above press clip to go on. Maybe some knows more? But based on that I assume Beijing-Tianjin. The Shijiazhuang line would in principle lose on a transfer from Daxing to Landfang, but according to the Dear Passengers it wouldn't be connected to it anyway.

How it is supposed to be connected in further details I would like to know as well. Apart from the HSR there are other connections as well. The S6 is to go from Shunyi north of the current airport through Tongzhou, connected to the CBD with the Batong and 6 line, to Yizhuang on the HSR and Yizhuang line.

None of these have showed any plans for extensions to Langfang. But in principle the two airports could be connected to Beijing through the North-East (current Airport Express), the East (the somewhat slower 6 and Batong lines to Tongzhou), and the South-East (the faster HSR and the much slower Yizhuang). If the connections go at metro speeds it will be slow, but not unbearably so (any possible connection from major East Beijing points within an hour). At sustained medium-speed rail, or car without traffic, that would be within 30 minutes. High-speed direct lines would be even faster, but quite expensive.

I've tried the transit hotel. The rooms are very small but comfortable enough with a wash basin. The bathroom and shower are outside in the corridor and are horrible.

Expensive, but less expensive and more convenient than connecting flights.

Of course the airport can also be connected by commuter rail.

Thanks for that. I will try either the transit hotel or the BGS lounge, see how I feel when I arrive.

Or not so big, it is probably a matter of perspective rather than relocation. Daxing is big, the original location was Daxing district bordering Langfang, the "new" location Langfang bordering Daxing. In other words close to Langfang town, not close to Daxing town.

Fog grounds flights in N. China







BEIJING, March 17 (Xinhua) -- A widespread fog effecting the north China region including Beijing and Tianjin has grounded hundreds of flights Saturday morning.

The Beijing Capital International Airport said by 9 a.m., 199 flights were canceled, as the visibility at the airport was less than 200 meters.

Meanwhile, airports in Tianjin, Shijiazhuang, Zhengzhou in north China were all enveloped in dense fog Saturday morning, with the visibility in Tianjin's airport less than 50 meters.

The fog has stagnated air pollutants. The averaged PM2.5 air quality reading in Beijing from Friday night to Saturday morning hit 144 micrograms of fine particles in per cubic meter of air.

The Municipal Meteorological Station said a gale following a drizzle Saturday evening would help dissipate the smog, but bring down the temperature by 10 degrees Celsius.
