Located in the south of Beijing, the capital city of China, it is approximately 46 kilometres from the city center and 67 kilometres from Beijing Capital International Airport.
Beijing Daxing International Airport was formally declared opened on 25 September 2019.
The phoenix-shaped airport features the world’s biggest single terminal building measuring over 1.4 million square metres. Emerging as the world’s largest integrated transportation hub, the airport boasts a sprawling network of high-speed and inter-city trains, subways and public buses.
Notably, it combines new technologies including infrared temperature gauge, facial recognition and sensors to provide passengers with safe, smooth, convenient and pleasant transportation service.
The new airport can not only help to relieve the current transportation pressure on Beijing Capital International Airport, but also accommodate the increasing number of inbound and outbound travellers.
Going forward, the new airport is expected to handle approximately 45 million and 72 million passengers per year by 2020 and 2025, respectively, eventually reaching 100 million in the long term.
