Wow, I can't wait to see the serious design proposals for the new airport. These plans sure look ugly as hell.

These aren't plans, they are blocks giving you and idea the shape and size of the airport.
Of course the new airport wouldn't consist of red blocks...

Perhaps it's because you built yours a long time ago and then you expand and add when the need comes along.

China can build big from the beginning, you couldn't. Stop bashing your own culture.

How will this airport compare to Dubai World Central in the future ? I see this airport will have the capacity to handle 130 million pax compared to 160 million pax for DWC.


Both cities will leave they're existing airports aswel. We do live in interesting times.

And I wonder how many terminals the new Beijing Airport will be... will it be able to accommodate domestic flights operating with a B747 or A380 too, similar to what CZ and CA are doing?

I don't know how accurate this is but apparently Air China is looking at starting up non-stop service from Beijing-Capital to Houston sometime in July.

Air China Comes to Houston

So far there have been no official announcements yet, so I am still kind of skeptical but given the number of Star Alliance connections and the sizable Chinese community in Houston, not to mention business ties, I can see why Air China is looking at serving Houston.

I was skeptical at first but it appears the flights will go forward 4x per week on a 77W. Even though the flights are not bookable at this time, it is showing in GPS. Look for the flights to be bookable 5-6 mths before start.

China Eastern did the same with their proposed flight from PVG-SFO. Announced the flight in GPS, no press announcement, not bookable but now is bookable 4 mths out.

China is booming fast and they are investing in Serbia a lot. Take a look at the prime Asia bound hubs from Belgrade such as IST and SVO. TK is going to BEG double daily, and SU is going double daily with a A321, two daily flights with JAT as well. Add FlyDubai and Qatar, we are talking about some decent numbers. I am sure some EU airline get a slack as well, but it involves backtracking.

Interesting. Hopefully, EK and EY will join in the party as well. And I'm thinking that Beijing could also benefit with even more nonstop flights from the Middle East by other carriers, including Saudia Airlines.

Well, Belgrade was linked with PEK back in the late 1990s and early 2000. The flights did not do too well because the trade with China was very minimal at that time, but it picked up later on. Here is the picture of JU's DC10 @ PEK in 2000.
