Beijing, China: Daxing International Airport To Open PDF Print E-mail

Scheduled to begin service in September, Beijing's Daxing is expected to become the largest and busiest in the world. It will boast seven runways, and move 100 million passengers and four million tons of cargo annually.

A suburb of the city, Daxing will provide high-speed rail and downtown-to-airport express trains. In less than an hour, they’ll all take passengers directly into the central terminal dome and check-in counters. The Chinese government is scheduled to build or expand 74 airports in the next several years, to serve 720 million passengers annually.
