Beijing T3 has A380 maintenance hangar (3.17.08)

BEIJING, March 18 (Xinhua) -- Construction of an A380 aircraft maintenance hangar, claimed to be the largest in Asia, was completed in Beijing on Tuesday.

The hangar, the first of its kind in the city, will be able to accommodate all Boeing and Airbus series aircraft including the A380 "superjumbo" aircraft after it is put into operation next month, according to the Aircraft Maintenance and Engineering Corporation (Ameco Beijing).

Located to the north of the new third terminal in the Beijing Capital International Airport, the hangar is expected to carry out maintenance services for 11,500 planes every year, according to the joint venture between Air China Ltd. and Lufthansa.

The hangar covers a floor area of more than 70,000 square meters, a part of the airport's expansion project marked by the launching of the No. 3 terminal last month.

Construction of the giant hangar, consisting of a maintenance hall and an attached building, was launched in September 2006, involving 700 million yuan (nearly 100 million U.S. dollars) in investment.

The hangar will be able to offer timely and high-quality maintenance services to all passenger flights during the Olympic Games, Chai Weixi, General Manager and CEO of Ameco Beijing, pledged at the ceremony marking the completion of the construction.

Beijing to build 2nd airport before 2010

BEIJING, March 18 (Xinhua) -- Chinese capital Beijing will start building a second airport before 2010, the General Administration of Civil Aviation (CAAC) said on Tuesday.

This goal was included in the national civil airport development plan, which covers the years up to 2020. Under the plan, the number of airports nationwide will rise to 190 or so by 2010, including 55 for both civilian and military purposes.

The location of the second Beijing airport, which will be for domestic services, is yet to be decided. However, CAAC officials said that it would probably be in the southern part of the capital, near the Yongding River.

Data from the agency show that last year, 148 airports on the mainland handled 387.59 million passengers and 8.61 million tons of cargo and mail, up 16.8 percent and 14.3 percent year-on-year, respectively.

Beijing Capital International Airport, the country's largest and busiest, handled 53.47 million passengers last year, putting it among the world's 10 busiest.

Its new Terminal 3, a major expansion project undertaken in preparation for an anticipated surge in passengers during the Olympics this summer, had its first commercial flight after opening on Feb. 29.
So BJ's second airport is for domestic service only?

thats weired. Today, you cannot seperate domestic and international flights any longer, as both usually depend on each other. Even in a large country like china.

And what happens, if you are on an international flight to Bejing, and then you have a connection to a domestic flight inside china. Do you have to Change the Airport then?

that's what happens in Tokyo and Shanghai I think.
PVG has a limited number of domestic flights though.
