Beijing new airport to be able to handle 100m passengers
Xinhua Excerpt
Updated: 2015-11-21

BEIJING - Beijing's new international airport, which is currently under construction, will eventually be able to handle 100 million passengers annually, authorities said Friday.

Before 2025, the airport will be able to handle 72 million passengers, 2 million tons of cargo and mail, and have 4 runways, according to a plan approved by government last year.

It is planned that the new airport will have seven runways.

**********************************************

Construction on the runway started late last year, and construction on the airport's terminal started in September 2015.

What's going to happen with Peking Capital International Airport when Daxing Airport is opened?

It will still be used. Beijing is really becoming a global hub on par with London or NY.

Finally got some updated satellite images of construction on the new airport. Less recent than Munwon's photos but still pretty interesting.
Coordinates: 39°30'37.53"N 116°24'40.85"E




Entire villages were razed in the space of a few months to make way for construction:

Bejing Capital Airlines announce Beijing-Birmingham UK Flights.

Birmingham Airport is delighted to announce two new scheduled services from Birmingham to Beijing and Birmingham to Shanghai (Hangzhou Airport) with Beijing Capital Airlines starting on the 19th July 2016.

The twice weekly departures will offer passengers the chance to visit China’s capital and the country’s largest city from Birmingham Airport.

It does appear to be a bit misleading however here in the UK it is quite normal for a destination to be classed as a totally different city for marketing reasons. No offense intended though.

A budget airline in Europe is famous for doing this. Ryanair for example do this all the time.

But now we are talking about a completely different megacity that is 170 km from each other. It's an insult to Hangzhou, it's not like Hangzhou is some obscure suburb outside Shanghai. We are talking about a city with a metro area of over 10 million people. However I wish people have fun traveling to London (Birmingham Airport). (It's 177 km from Shanghai to Hangzhou Airport and 183 km from London to Birmingham Airport.)
