New airport will reflect flow of history
13 February 2015
China Daily Excerpt

The proposed design of Beijing's new airport reflects the country's rich cultural history and the remarkable future predicted for the country, according to the architects working on the project.

"The overall symmetry of the project and the flowing, curving forms integrate the design into a harmonious composition which evokes Chinese culture - its colors and materials are also emblematic of Chinese traditional visual language," said a spokesman for British company Zaha Hadid Architects.

The design sketch for the new airport was released on Monday. The star-shaped terminal will include "an integrated multimodal transport center featuring direct links to local and national rail services including the high-speed rail", the spokesman said.

The airport is designed to be "a key transport hub within Beijing's growing infrastructure development and a catalyst for the region's economic development, including the city of Tianjin and Hebei province".

The terminal has been designed by Zaha Hadid Architects and the French architectural firm ADP Ingenierie.

Airport specialist ADPI won an international design competition for the project that was launched in 2011. The Beijing New Airport Headquarters brought ADPI and the British firm together in October 2014 to develop the design.

The airport will be located in the capital's southern Daxing district. The terminal will initially accommodate 45 million passengers per year, and when complete will be the world's largest airport passenger terminal.

so I arrived at BCIA a few weeks ago from HK around 4pm and the immigration lines for the foreigner is just awesome

the line reaches the airbridge entrance

in the end , queued for around 45min just to stamp the passport

is this experience part of the over-capacity ?

When do they expect to begin construction of this new airport at Daixing? Or have they started already?

My flights always go to Terminal 2. Short wait, minimal lines from overseas locations.

It is a trade off. Terminal 3 is the most badass airport terminal in the world. At least architecturally speaking, however the lines for security and for the tram are ridiculous. Also the line for taxi's at T3 last time I was there was about 90 minutes, and sure I can take the airport express, but good luck getting a taxi at dongzhimen.

Terminal 2 looks like a train station in rural China and has some of the worst F&B options of any airport on earth (worse than Taiyuan, Fuzhou, Tangshan, Dalian etc.) but the security lines are relatively quick and the taxi wait is 15 minutes at the longest. Even T1 is better and has cold cheap booze, and a Starbucks.

I would say if you are an architecture buff and it is your first time to China fly to T3 and just endure it once. For me since I have seen T3 like 10 times I just fly out of T2. Also I usually fly China Eastern and China Southern which go through T2.

I take the shuttle bus from T2 over to T3 just to look at the building. I had an 8 hour layover there last year and spent 7 hours of it in T3!

did both T2 and T3 and most of your comment are spot on

but... as for the taxi instead of going down in dongzhimen , stop at sanyuanqiao ... less crowded = more taxi and even more black taxi across the street

I agree with you. The architecture is beautiful but the utilization is not so good. Since all the passengers have to pass though the same narrow channel, the trams. So they get congested all the time. They should design to have different ways to access to other terminal

Beijing airport runway repair to affect flights
Excerpt

BEIJING, May 10 (Xinhua) -- Beijing Capital International Airport will repair one of its runways from May 23 to 28 with some flights to be affected.

The runway, the central one of the three, has been in service for 19 years after the previous maintenance in 1996.

The move will affect 11 airline companies, which will have to cut or combine flights.

Magnanimous Beijing's Capital International Airport Terminal 3. I took some pictures starting from my arrival in a remote position from a local flight of Air China. Remote positions in such an advanced and important airport can only mean there is already saturation, and considering the airport already handles more than 80 million passenger per year that is indeed impressive.

Next to the A321 I arrived, an A330 from Air China.



I always find it complicated to distinguish between A320 family and Boeing 737, but I'm gonna guess this is a 737?





I arrived to sub-terminal C. Funny I have actually use the prefix "sub" isn't? The terminal is enormous!



Selfie in the bathroom's mirror ha.





Heading to the commuter rail. One would feel odd arriving at the most important "communist" gateway and finding all the top fashion brands propaganda right? Ok, sorry for the off-topic! >_>





Already in sub-terminal E, Air Canada's 777.



Another 777 from Air Canada.



Speaking of saturation, waiting rooms didn't really seemed with much activity.



T3 is the main hub for Air China, next another A330.



American Airlines 777.



The "dragon's butt" designed by Norman Foster, Asiana from Korea, Mahan Air from Iran and Air China's jumbo jets standing one after other. Asiana's plane seems like a 777 from the distance.



Will continue with more another day, I would appreciate comments or corrections.

I observe that Air China likes to park at remote stands even if T3D and E are virtually empty if they intend to reposition the aircraft between domestic and international.
