I doubt maglev will be built as it is too costly. Conventional HSR up to 350 km/h will probably be more than sufficient to link the two airports within a reasonable time.

The bigger problem is compatibility and through running with the long distance network of rails, which maglev would break.

If all high speed trains Shijiazhuang-Beijing stop at Daxing airport terminal station before proceeding to central Beijing or the other airport - like most high speed trains into Shanghai now stop in Hongqiao airport - then passengers coming from Shijiazhuang, Taiyuan, Zhengzhou etc. could take high speed train to Daxing airport and travel through Daxing airport instead of flying from Shijiazhuang, Zhengzhou, Taiyuan etc. airports.

And those who do not get off in Daxing could continue via central Beijing to the other airport - and via that other airport continue to Chengde or Qinhuagdao, and then to Shenyang and rest of Manchuria.

The problem with the current Hongqiao-Pudong setup is that HSR passengers arriving at Hongqiao from, say, Nanjing don't really have any efficient means of transportation to Pudong. Line 2 or taxi cab to Longyang Rd then on the maglev is probably the quickest, but it still takes about an hour and half.
If Beijing builds Daxing as a domestic hub then they need to build a HSR (conventional or maglev) line connecting to PEK, otherwise international passengers arriving at PEK will have to get a cab to Daxing to catch a domestic connecting flight.

Beijing Nanyuan Airport opens new terminal

BEIJING, July 6 (Xinhua) -- Beijing Nanyuan Airport, the oldest airport in China, unveiled a new terminal on Friday, allowing it to serve significantly more passengers as the nation's aviation industry continues to boom.

The 10,000-square-meter terminal went into operation on Friday, along with a renovated parking lot, runway and tarmac, said a statement from China United Airlines, which operates the 102-year-old airport -- located just 13 km south of Tiananmen Square in downtown Beijing.

With the new terminal, the airport will be able to serve 6 million passengers a year, more than doubling its capacity in 2011, according to the statement.

The airport, which was primarily a military airfield, had only one terminal before. It handled 2.8 million passengers in 2011.

China United Airlines, the only commercial airline using Nanyuan Airport, operates passenger services to more than 50 Chinese cities.

FLIGHTS between Shanghai and Beijing returned to normal yesterday after Beijing added a total of 211 domestic and international flights to transport passengers stranded on Saturday.

Most of the delayed flights between Shanghai and Beijing, one of the busiest routes in China, took off yesterday morning, a Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport official said.

Do anyone have any photos of the terminal 2 of Beijing Nanyuan Airport?

I think Beijing Capital Airport should be rated a 5-star airport by Skytrax. I think Skytrax unfairly deals with an airport's size.

Angolan airliner resumes flights to Beijing

LUANDA, Sept. 18 (Xinhua) -- Angola's national airliner TAAG has resumed its weekly flights to Beijing, the capital of China, after a five-month stoppage due to operational reasons, Angola's official news agency reported on Tuesday.

The flights depart on Monday from the Angolan capital Luanda to Beijing and back from Beijing on Tuesday with a Boeing 777-220er, and the company planned to add one more weekly flight between the two capitals by October to meet the rising demand.

Currently there are at least 50,000 Chinese expatriates working in Angola, mostly involved in the post-war reconstruction process, which began when the civil war ended in the southern African country in 2002.

TAAG has operations in Portugal, Brazil, Dubai, Havana, South Africa, Sao Tome and Principe, Cape Verde, Zambia, Namibia and Zimbabwe.
