Somebody correct me if I;m wrong on this but neither of the Chinese built passenger planes the ARJ or C919 have entered service yet. So exactly which CHINESE passenger planes were you referring to?

He is referring to Chinese airlines and their old-fashioned liveries.

In that case he has a valid point though he could have expressed it a bit better.

If Daxing is taking forever even to be started and PEK traffic is growing under 5% because it can't absorb more traffic I can't understand where is the extra demand going. I mean, most first and secon tier airports are gaining 2-4 million passengers year after year while Beijing is barely stagnated. How's that possible?

The exact status of Daxing is uncertain and not having a forum user out there means that we haven't a clue about progress or lack of it.

New Beijing airport targets 2018 openingUpdated: 2013-04-11 01:40
( Xinhua) Comments Print Mail Large Medium SmallBEIJING - Construction of a new airport in south Beijing will start next year, and the facility is expected to be completed and put into use in 2018, local authorities announced on Wednesday.

Preliminary work prior to the construction of the airport, located in Daxing district, bordering Hebei province, is under way, sources with the Beijing Municipal Commission of Development and Reform said.

They added that the airport will be linked with three expressways, including one that will be newly built along the southern central axis of Beijing.

Under-way discussions over an urban rail transit to connect the airport are likely to be finished within the year.

The new airport project was approved at the end of 2012, as part of efforts to spur the development of Beijing's southern suburbs.

Meanwhile, an air transport-related economic zone is also planned, with an investment of 84 billion yuan ($13.39 billion).

Upon completion, the new airport is expected to ease traffic pressure on Beijing Capital International Airport, which remained the world's second-busiest airport in 2012 in terms of passenger throughput. Its passenger volume reach 81.8 million last year, according to a statement published by the airport in January.

Per analyst BCIA's low growth is due to,
  1. HSR competition
  2. Government budget cut (Xi's policy)
  3. Tension with Japan

Chinese airlines in it for the long haul
With the nation's outbound travel set to soar, Chinese airlines are banking on brand recognition to capitalize on the population's increasing appetite to work and travel abroad. As incomes enjoy steady growth, so too do foreign destinations hosting Chinese tourists.

China had the highest number of outbound tourists and amount of overseas spending in the world last year, according to a recent report released by the Tourist Research Center of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.

Ninety-seven million Chinese traveled abroad in 2013, beating the 2012 mark by roughly 14 million, according to the China National Tourism Administration. The number is expected to exceed 100 million this year.

The report said that China's tourists have had the world's strongest purchasing power since 2012. They overtook German and US tourists as the world's biggest-spending travelers in 2012, spending $102 billion overseas, a 40-percent increase from 2011.

Last year, international traffic for China's three big carriers — Air China, China Eastern and China Southern — saw the number of international passengers increase by an average of 20 percent.

To meet demand, Hainan Airlines announced it will start a new nonstop service from Beijing to Boston, Massachusetts, in June.

"Business, leisure and educational travel and trade between the United States and China have been growing dramatically," Liang Pubin, managing director of Hainan Airlines in North America, said at the time of the announcement. "This wonderful new link will stimulate this growth via the important Boston gateway."

The new flight offers access for US visitors to more than 32 Chinese cities via Hainan Airlines' hub in Beijing.

For Boston, it means adding to the 21 million annual tourists to the city — with Chinese the fastest-growing demographic in visitors — as well as bringing business travelers to stimulate the local economy.

Last year, 1.7 million Chinese traveled to the US, an increase of 40 percent on 2012, according to figures from the US Department of State.

The surge in growth of Chinese going to the US is attributed to the US easing its visa policy in 2012 to entice more foreign tourists.

"Boston is the sixth-largest airline passenger market in the US to China and the largest without a nonstop service," says Richard Davey, secretary and chief executive of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation.

These are not my photos. Please refer to the source link at the top of the post.

From the source, the photographer used Canon EOS-1D X, but no idea about the lens.

Beijing must really have very clear air to be able to make a photo like that.

Taxi-booking apps disrupt airport service
14 February 2014
China Daily

Taxi apps are causing turbulence at Beijing Capital International Airport with some passengers getting taxis quickly while others are left with a sense of being grounded, airport authorities said.

The airport witnessed a rising number of passengers using the apps as they returned to Beijing after the Spring Festival holiday.

Instead of waiting in the long line for taxis at the airport, many used the taxi-booking apps.

But this has disrupted normal service at the airport, said Li Xiaomei, a spokeswoman for the airport.

Li said the airport will discuss the situation with Beijing's traffic authorities, which supervise ground transport in the airport area.

According to a regulation released in 2012, taxi drivers have to receive passengers in a specific area and are not allowed to operate their business in a car park or the airport's departure area.

However, taxi drivers are allowed to enter the parking lot after their cars are reserved by passengers, according to the regulation.

The airport admitted that the regulation released in 2012 did not mention apps that have become increasingly popular in the last year.

Cao Haijun, a cab driver in Beijing, said he frequently relied on passengers using apps in the airport.

Passengers can reserve a taxi in advance, allowing drivers to enter the airport without violating regulations, he said.

Wang Jiansheng, a veteran taxi driver in Beijing, said sometimes drivers wait for hours at the airport only to get a fare for a short journey.

Wang, from Beifang Taxi Co, said the popularity of the apps was that both parties knew in advance the journey details before any deal was made.

Two waiting sections should be established, Wang suggested, one for long journeys and the other for shorter trips.

In January, Internet giants Tencent and Alibaba both launched similar promotion campaigns to encourage drivers and passengers to use the taxi-booking apps by giving both drivers and passengers subsidies for doing so.

Didi Dache, the taxi-hailing app in cooperation with Tencent, announced that from Jan 10 to Sunday, taxi trips booked via the mobile payment platform reached 21 million in 58 cities across the country.

Subsidies for passengers and drivers reached 400 million yuan ($66 million) during the campaign, according to a statement by Didi provided to China Daily.
