Air China, Beijing airport join hands for world-class air hub
30 November 2009

BEIJING, Nov. 30 (Xinhua) -- With the landing of Air China's CA 912 flight from Stockholm to Beijing at 9:50 AM, Nov. 30, the passenger throughput at Beijing Capital International Airport, the capitals largest airport, has exceeded 60 million this year.

Air China will work with the Beijing Capital International Airport to build the latter into an international air hub and make traveling more convenient for passengers, said Zhang Lan, vice president of Air China, on Monday, marking a breakthrough in the airport's passenger transportations.

Air China is the largest air carrier based in the Beijing Capital International Airport. It accounts for over 70 percent of the throughput at the airport's newest third terminal.

The air carrier transferred to Terminal 3 in March of last year. Since then, it has improved its service procedures, developed network-based service platforms, and raised its transit efficiency.

Beijing Capital International Airport is located in northeastern Beijing, and is one of the business air hubs in China.

BCIA's passenger Throughput

Wow! At the rate that PEK is growing, it would definitely be number one in five years time.

In 2008 PEK handled 56 million passengers. In 11 months of 2009 it got 60 million so it's probably safe to say that 2009 total will stand at about 64 million. That's more than 13% growth. Not too bad I guess. It's just a matter of few (2-3?) years before PEK becomes No.1 in the world in terms of passenger volume.

What a beauty. Are there any pics from the departures area? Normally it's THE sexiest bit of any airport. I wonder how it would compare to say Hong Kong airport (in terms of shopping, eating options, resting areas, etc.)?

The restaurants were a bit more spacious, but I thought the terminal was very dark, even during the day. This is because the skylights aren't too big, and they weren't too keen to turn on the lights in the afternoon.

Once I got to the farther reaches of the terminal, we were freezing in the cold as there was no heat and it was not even 10C outside.

It's amazing that 5 of the world's top ten busiest airport are in the US. The amount of air traffic over the continental US must be incredible.

I think the US stats are artificially inflated by their hub system. To get to the smaller cities, passengers need to change planes at the airline's hub. For example, Delta has a hub in Atlanta. Continental has one at Newark. So a transit passenger will be counted as 2 at the transit airport even if the passenger does not leave the terminal.

Does that mean that you can't go direct from some smaller city "x" to another smaller city "y" if neither of them is an airline hub and have to go via one of the hubs?

What is truly amazing is how quickly the old biggies are getting replaced in the top 30 or 50 (or say 100) lists of world's busiest airports.

In the top 30, the number of US airports would come down to 15 or 16 this year from a high of 19 in 2000. While the Asian representation in that list would be growing to 8 or 9 from 4 in 2000. The changes would be much more glaring, if one were to glance through the top 100 list. And you expand the canvas and go back in time to say the 90s or 80s, the picture will become even more amazing.
