its definitely at capacity. i've been on four flights through there in the past month and 2 of those times we have had to get a bus to the already full terminal from the plane. also it might not always seem that full, but its slot constrained due to only 3 runways

400 million is definitely not a feasible near-term target. Even hitting 100 million is considered astronomical today. However, China's aviation industry is growing rapidly and 3 runways is probably not enough for the capital's main airport.

It's a small 300 people Chinese logistics company. Its air fleet consists of three 747-200F.

Here is the plan, the yellow shaded area is the city of Amsterdam in scale and the green area is Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. It's designed to have 8 runways with a max capacity of 130 million. Note two of the runways are dedicated for take offs.

Like this rendering, the new airport is going to be huge.. Will it be the same size as the new Dubai airport (Al Makhtoum) or a little bit smaller.????

Thanks for the answer about Uni-top Airlines..

Dubai World Central, as a whole, is still bigger than this. The entire surface area of that project is 140 kmē. Beijing-Daxing International Airport, meanwhile, only has 55 kmē of land to work with.

However, if the airport component of Dubai World Central , Al-Makhtoum International Airport, is the only one included in this size comparison, then the total surface area (that is dedicated for airport use) at Beijing-Daxing International Airport is, perhaps, slightly larger.

First domestic A380 and international 787 flights!

PEK is the destination of both the first domestic A380 flight and first international 787 flight!

The first domestic A380 flights shall be those of China Southern, Beijing-Guangzhou and Beijing-Shanghai, some time in September 2011, as disclosed some time ago.

The first international 787 flight was recently announced:

All Nippon Airways, Haneda - Beijing, some time in December 2011.

When comparing airport sizes, I believe, the main criteria should be passenger handling capacity. At the end that is why the are built for. Land area is, for me, meaningless. I bet there are some military air bases in middle of Siberia have much larger land than that of any civilian airports

I agree that passenger handling capacity should be the ultimate deciding factor, second by aircraft handling capacity (# of gates and runways). I don't think military airfields are any larger, for example a big ass AFB such as Nellis is still smaller than Vegas' McCarran airport.

@ foxmulder

I agree. But I believe that the total potential capacity of an aircraft-handling facility based on its total surface area is still another measuring standard. Although, it may not be a practical comparative exercise.

If we go with this measuring standard, then the Baikonur Cosmodrome (5,000 kmē) would be the largest. I mean, much of its land consists of cold flat desert (which has very conducive land contours for runway construction and, thereby, aircraft-handling capacity).

An air force base such as the Nevada Test and Training Range (formerly Nellis Air Force Range) holds the title as the world's largest overland aircraft-handling facility on the planet with a total surface area of 12,140 kmē. However, much of it consists of dry rocky mountainous ranges, which severely reduces N.T.T.R.'s potential aircraft-handling capacity. So, the Baikonur Cosmodrome is, by this measure still larger.

Heck. If we include its water ranges, the Eglin Complex (Eglin Air Force Base, Hurlburt Field, and Duke Field) would take that title from N.T.T.R.. But since much of its 340,000-kmē area is covered by the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, its potential aircraft-handling capacity is smaller than the other two with just 1,874.2 kmē of actual land to work with.
