XXX | Beijing Daxing International Airport

Dutch design world's biggest airport

The Dutch engineering firm NACO (Netherlands Airport Consultants), the winning master plan for the newly built airport in the Chinese capital Beijing.

New Beijing International Airport, the largest airport in the world, with eight runways and an ultimate capacity of 130 million passengers per year. The airport will be in area roughly as large as the area within the ring road of Amsterdam.

The existing Beijing airport, Beijing Capital International Airport is the busiest one in the world with 74 million passengers in 2010. By comparison airport processed 45 million passengers last year. The coming years, the Beijing airport reach its maximum capacity and will require an airport to be built.
Terminal 3

NACO, part of engineering consultancy DHV, has been active in China since 1984. The company was involved in the development of more than twenty airports in the country.

NACO has designed the massive Terminal 3 at Beijing Airport today. That terminal was just before the Olympics opened.

The new airport is south of downtown Beijing in the Daxing district, to lie.
Sustainable

NACO says they have won partly by the design of infrastructure around the airport.

"A dense network of public transport, with an HSL line, metro and train to the other airports. There were the Chinese people very happy," said Rik Krabbendam, Director of NACO.

The design also has a durable aspect: the distance the aircraft must taxi is as short as possible, reducing CO2 emissions. In 2017 New Beijing International Airport to be operational.

A moment to be proud to be Dutch.

Impressive project.

By the way, ATL is still the busiest airport in the world, even if PEK is growing very fast.

The main terminals kind of look like ICN - Korea.

Shows the sheer size of the project!

Just as an aside, the master plan for Denver Airport calls for 12 runways at ultimate buildout.

The bottom image shows the entrance hall to Beijing Capital Airport Terminal 3, also planned by NACO and designed by Lord Foster.

As far as I can tell, NACO is an airport consultancy only, not an architectural practice.
(Example, their "home airport" Schiphol was planned by them, but the architects for the original terminal were Duintjer and de Weger, the extension was designed by Benthem Crouwel)

The only further images if this master plan I could find in a hurry are on the site of NACO's mother company, DHV Group. Unter www.dhv.com - Newsroom, you can find the images that were so extensively flown over in the OPs video.
There, they're marked "artists impression". Therefore my guess is that an architectural practice has yet to flesh out the building outlines.
And after that's accomplished, we may hope for more renders.

The question is, does Beijing really need two large airports?

It's smart to think big with a masterplan, but I hope they don't built it all in one go. PEK is handling the traffic well-enough now, so the Daxing airport will be built to handle all the growth. I know Beijing is expected to grow as more people more to it and it residents become wealthier, but they should use American cities as an upperbound in projecting flyership. On any given day in New York City, what percentage of people fly? Include JFK, La Guardia, and Newark airports in that. America has the largest aviation market in the world, and with few practical alternatives like rail or road for long distance travel, it represents a saturated aviation market. Beijing will at least have the world's best high-speed rail network.

Beijing anticipates becoming an international hub, but it's competing with Incheon and Tokyo for northeast Asian flights, and Shanghai, Incheon, and Tokyo for Asian and trans-Pacific flights. In other words, growth will occur, but not at a rate of 15 percent every year for the next two decades. I always thought the Daxing airport would be smaller than PEK, to supplement it and handle mostly domestic flights. This masterplan looks like they intend to relegate PEK to the secondary domestic role.

Are we sure this is the masterplan, or just a preliminary drawing?

Let's hope this second airport doesn't end up like Mirabel. If it did, everyone would think we're on steroids.

There have been comments in the media that the new airport will be a hub for SkyTeam airlines while the existing one will be for Air China and Star Alliance. In this case the airports will be both major hubs.

Unfortunately there is a bad habit in China to make super-wild projections which are never close to ever being achieved. Personally I think only the first phase (four runways, 40 million passenger capacity, one terminal built) will ever be built, since further expansion will either be unnecessary due to the high speed rail expansion or very politically difficult as the society continues to open up.
