What are the chances that the new Daxing Airport serves Tianjin as well, in addition to Beijing? Or would that be a terrible idea because the distance from the new airport to Tianjin would be greater than to the center of Beijing (80 km > 45 km)?

The high speed railway servicing the airport will also serve parts of Hebei and Tianjin, integrated in a new 4 East-West & 4 North-South network of lines across the region. However Tianjin Airport will continue to operate, just as Beijing Capital Airport will continue to run too.

Yes, great pics! This behemoth is soon going to be in the spotlights all over the world.
As an aside... am I the only one, or does Tjrgx's last pic scream "Simcity" for others too?

The new Beijing Daxing Airport is due south of Beijing. The airport will replace the small domestic Beijing Nanyuan Airport and will compliment the exisiting Beijing Capital Airport which will continue to operate. So Beijing will then have two major airports, just like Shanghai with Hongqiao and Pudong Airports.

Mods, should we re-title the thread to include the new airport? Does it have an airport code yet?

Framework Construction for Main Structure of Beijing Daxing International Airport’s Transport Hub Wraps Up

https://www.yicaiglobal.com/news/fra...-transport-hub

(Yicai Global) Aug. 31 -- Workers completed framework construction for the main structure of the Beijing Daxing International Airport’s integrated transport center yesterday.

The transport center has three major parts -- a central hub, a parking facility and a service building -- and covers an area of 503,000 square meters on the North side of the main terminal, The Beijing News reported.

The hub links high-speed rails, subways, intercity rails and highways and will provide access for departing and arriving passengers.

The parking area is a four-story structure with 5,345 spots, including 600 spaces with charging stations for electric vehicles.

The center has a passenger service and commercial facilities that are directly connected to the rail stations and services building. The hotels offer more than 560 rooms, and airlines and supporting units can use the business offices.

Among airports of similar size, Beijing Daxing International Airport, whose name has not been made official yet, boasts hotels and offices closest to the terminal -- about 600 meters from its center.

Engineers used a concrete floor in their designs because it will be able to handle vibrations generated by the high-speed trains that will pass below the terminal at 250 kilometers per hour.

In the next phase of the transport center’s buildout, workers will put up steel structures, metal roofing and glass curtain walls.

The airport’s main project is scheduled to be completed by the end of next year and it is scheduled to open by 2019.

BJS is the current code for Beijing in general, covering PEK and NAY airport. NAY will still be a military airfield, so despite being closed for commercial flights, it's code would be unavailable. PKX is an available code...... so maybe? I'll be going to the IATA and ICAO headquarters in October, I might ask how it is assigned and what it possibly might be.

New Beijing Airport Taxis Closer to Takeoff

http://www.caixinglobal.com/2017-09-07/101142064.html

Beijing’s new international airport has spent about 40% of its budget so far, or 30.8 billion yuan ($4.7 billion), as the massive facility gets set to take flight in 2019.

The new airport, which will become the world’s largest by area, is located 46 kilometers (28.6 miles) south of Beijing’s city center.

It was designed to handle up to 72 million passengers and 2 million tons of cargo each year by 2025. With four runways, it will be able to accommodate 620,000 flights each year. Beijing’s current airport can handle 96 million passengers annually, but the facility is quickly approaching maximum capacity.

“The airport is taking shape with completion of the steel structure of its terminal buildings,” said Liu Xuesong, general manager of Capital Airport Holding Co., which will own the new airport. Liu spoke at an industry forum on Wednesday.

Construction started on the airport in late 2014. Upon completion, Beijing will become only the second Chinese city with two major airports after Shanghai, putting the Chinese capital in the company of major international hubs like New York and Tokyo.

Unlike Beijing, multiple airports in other world cities usually play complementary roles, such as one serving international routes and the other focusing domestic or regional flights. The new Beijing airport will make Beijing one of the world’s first to have two hubs of a similar size, each catering to domestic and international flyers.

According to the government’s plan, the new airport will mainly serve members of the SkyTeam alliance, a global airline alliance including two of China’s top three carriers, China Eastern and China Southern. In June, China Eastern started construction on a 13.2 billion yuan aviation facility at the new airport.

The existing Beijing Capital International Airport in the city’s northeast would become the hub for Air China, China’s other major carrier, as well as fellow airlines in its global Star Alliance.

Caixin has learned that, like in Shanghai, the new Beijing airport will have a different operator than the one that manages its first airport. It’s a move designed to create competition between the two facilities.

I wonder if Beijing will be the first city in the world to reach 200 million passengers at both airports...
