Finally a mainland airline with a good livery. The "Big 3" (CA,MU,CZ) really need better liveries.

Do we have a discussion about the proposed new Beijing airport? There are some discussions at airliners.net last week showing a Dutch design of eight runways.

That project has its own dedicated thread in this section : XXX | Beijing Daxing International Airport

Beijing's new airport approved: airlines to be split by alliance
http://www.ausbt.com.au/beijing-s-ne...es-by-alliance
By John Walton
PUBLISHED 21 JUL, 2011



Beijing's new airport has been given the go-ahead for construction to begin, with a reported eight runways, 55 square kilometres of space and capacity to take an astounding 400 million passengers a year.

The airport will be nearly 50 km to the south of Beijing, and will cover two towns in the Daxing area of the Beijing city municipality.

According to the head of the China Civil Airport Association, quoted in China's official English language newspaper China Daily, flights will be split between the new "Beijing South" airport and the current Beijing Capital airport according to airline alliance.

With the Star Alliance well-established at member airline Air China's base at the enormous Terminal 3 at the current Capital airport, look for oneworld airlines like Qantas and Cathay Pacific, plus potentially SkyTeam airlines including China Southern and China Eastern to be shifted south.

Alliance co-location is an interesting idea, and has previously been limited to airlines sharing terminals at a single airport. For example, at London Heathrow, the Star Alliance has most of Terminal 1 and SkyTeam has most of Terminal 4. But there are still spillovers to other terminals.

Beijing Capital is running to capacity, as we reported in January: authorities have said "it is now impossible to add even one more flight to the tight daily schedule of the capital airport".

The current Capital airport takes an already-impressive 74 million passengers across nearly 500,000 flights a year, but has only three runways.

Compare that with 400 million planned passengers at Beijing South and you see why it's going to need eight runways. That's one more than the previous record-holders, Chicago O'Hare and Dallas/Fort Worth in the USA.

A further ninth runway will be for military and official use.

And that's just the "first phase" of the Beijing South project, which will also have an airport rail link into the city to whizz passengers into Beijing in under half an hour.

How shall Daxing airport be located relative to high speed railways?

Splitting it by alliances will be interesting to implement when Cathay Pacific and subsidiary Dragonair have codesharing with Air China, unless of course, Air China is allowed to use both airports.

So only Air China would be at PEK, while all the other mainland carriers shift south? That's quite a death sentence for them. There are so many small Chinese carriers that are not part of any global alliances.

400 million passengers per annum? You're gonna need around 7 terminals the size of Beijing Capital's Terminal 3 to achieve numbers like those. Should have been at the more modest 130 million, but why 400 million? Told you it was on steroids, and I hope it doesn't end up a potential white elephant. Plus, it would cost over US$10,000,000,000. How about the whole thing is built in phases?

Somehow I think only the first phase of three runways and one terminal for 50 million passengers will be built, before the super-massive master plan is quietly put away for good.

Perhaps in 50 years we'll still be here laughing at how absurd this master plan was.

Wait...wait. So, this means that this 400-million-pax monster is just the first phase and so it could get even bigger?! Now that's just insane!

Apparently its already run to capacity, although I don't really believe it. 400million is more than the population of USA. That's a bit crazy for the city of Beijing's size. Can anyone provide a render for the master plan? 400million is even crazier than dubai's masterplan airport. Let's be more realistic here.. 200 million max!
