Is someone able to post the correct google earth coordinates of the planned new airport?

Is there already resettlement of the current residnets going on?

Their intention is to close the almost VIP exclusive Nanyuan Airport and dedicate one runway of the Daxing Airport to military/VIP use. Besides CUA, the bulk of the Chinese government transport fleet (10 x 737, 12 x CRJ, 4-6 Tu154M) will also move to Daxing, leaving Xijiao Airport as the sole VVIP / emergency evac base that's close to the city center, possibly with underground access.

This change means a number of flights out of Daxing will be government in nature and cause disruptions of the regular departure order or landing pattern. But it also means the uncertainty of those flights are less so the airspace restriction will likely to be shorter. There have been many talks about opening up low altitude airspace to foster general aviation growth, but I very much doubt the opening of commercial airspace will happen any time soon.

No PEK will remain as PEK, the new airport in Daxing District will be a brand new second international airport at Beijing, and its eventual size will be quite a bit larger than PEK. Pretty much Star Alliance will remain at PEK while Skyteam will be moved to the new airport.

looks like that's a wise step to do before any new construction begins. I would do that for any airport construction myself.

Ah. It looks pretty similar to the 747-8F. But yea, with a closer inspection, it is indeed a 744F. I was too excited to think that it is the brand new 748F model.

Beijing's visa-free transit policy to benefit foreign visitors

BEIJING, Dec. 6 (Xinhua) -- Air travelers, including U.S. businessman David Brockman, are set to benefit from the announcement that Beijing will start a 72-hour visa-free stay policy for citizens of 45 countries in 2013.

The move will bring much convenience to the likes of Brockman, who frequently flies to China, as getting a visa can currently take upto two weeks.

"As soon as the policy takes effect, I can take advantage of the chance of traveling to other Asian countries and spend three days in China where I can take time to talk with Chinese companies," he said.

From Jan. 1, 2013, tourists holding third country visas and plane tickets can apply for a transit without visa (TWOV) in the capital city at Beijing Capital International Airport, the Beijing municipal government announced on Wednesday.

The 45 countries were listed in accordance with the numbers of inbound overnight visitors in Beijing from 2009 to 2011.

Foreign visitors are not permitted to leave Beijing to other Chinese cities during the 72 hours, and have to depart from Beijing.

Visitors have to register at a police station with their visas within 24 hours of their arrival, according to the government.

The 72 hours will be calculated starting from the moment visitors get their transit stay permits, said Gao Dahua, deputy director of the exit and entry administrative corps of Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau.

Beijing Capital International Airport is the only entry-exit port applicable for the policy, Gao stressed.

The policy may enhance the status of Beijing Capital International Airport as an international air hub, said Gao Lijia, a general deputy manager with the airport.

The airport has seen about 7.6 million inbound and outbound foreign passengers during the first nine months in 2012 and 521,600 out of them are transit passengers, Gao said

He predicted that the policy will bring 600,000 to 800,000 transit visitors to China in 2013.

To help with the transit visitors, the airport will improve service facilities in the airport including special visa-free channels, said Li Chunfang, manager with the planning and development department of the airport.

"We will set up a special service zone for transit visitors in our terminals, offering drinking water and reading materials," Li elaborated, "Moreover, services including foreign currency exchange, mobile phone rental service, and left-luggage office will be provided for the convenience of tourists."

Xu Jianqiang, chief economist of Air China, said the transit policy will also boost development of the air-travel market, creating more jobs.

"A relaxed visa policy is common practice to boost the inbound tourist market," said Wang Yue, deputy director with Beijing Municipal Commission of Tourism Development.

The current number of foreign visitors to Beijing is 5 million per year. The number is expected to double in three years after the TWOV policy comes into effect, the commission predicted.

Travel agencies are also rushing to offer one to three-day personalized tour packages with cheaper prices to cater for the potential tourists, said Sun Lianqin, vice general manager of the BTG International Travel & Tours.

"As more than one third of the flights make a stopover in Beijing Capital International Airport during the night, our travel agencies will develop some night entertainment programs for the tourists," Sun added.

New tax-free shops in the airport and in downtown Beijing are planned to be built to attract more foreign consumers.

However, transit visitors will not be allowed to bring their pets or other animals with them within the 72 hours in China. Instead, pets will be temporarily kept at an appointed place for quarantine, according to a Beijing Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau spokesman.

However, they can bring their guide dogs along with them under certain conditions.

World’s biggest airport set to open in Beijing in 2017
AFP
October 15, 2012
Quote:
Master plans for the new mega airport in Beijing were released Thursday by Dutch Airport Consultancy firm NACO. Located just outside Beijing, it will have capacity for 130 million passengers per year, 23 million more than JFK and London Heathrow combined.

The new airport will
provide a second hub for the city, whose current airport handles almost 75 million passengers a year. The current airport, Beijing Capital International Airport, will be reaching its capacity within a few years.

The new airport, to be called Beijing Daxing International Airport, is scheduled to open in 2017. The recently released plans show a new hub that will cover 55 square kilometers (about 21 square miles) and include eight runways.

Plans also show an integrated ground transportation hub, which will shuttle passengers into Beijing with a journey time of 30 minutes on a high-speed railway. A slower route on the city's underground will also be available.

Atlanta is currently the busiest airport in the world, transporting more than 89 million passengers per year, followed by Beijing's current airport which transports more than 73 million passengers and Heathrow which transports around 65 million passengers.

NACO is one of the world's leading independent airport consultancy and engineering firms. In recent years the firm has been involved with over 550 airports of all sizes in more than 100 countries.

Recently NACO has collaborated with Viracopos-Campinas International Airport in Brazil which processed 7.5 million passengers in 2011 and is expected to grow to 15 million.

Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, another of the firm's projects, is frequently named as "the best airport in the world." NACO has been working on its development since 1960. Recently the firm assisted the airport expand its capacity from 18 million to 48 million passengers annually.

The new Beijing airport is larger than the island of Bermuda
