Beijing Daxing International Airport (PKX)

After more than four years of construction, Beijing Daxing International Airport has opened for operation in September 2019. As Beijing's second international airport, the official operation of Daxing Airport also marks the ushering of Beijing in the era of "one city, dual hubs".

The construction and operation of Daxing Airport has also set several world records, including the world's largest single airport terminal, the world's first terminal with high-speed rail underpass, Asia's largest aircraft hangar and so forth. With the opening of Daxing Airport, the overloaded operation of the Beijing Capital International Airport is also expected to ease. As the transportation hub and aviation center of the entire Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, the new Daxing Airport, will have a tremendous driving effect on the development of this region. In an era when the airside economy has become a hotspot for all countries, this airport, which has set more than 40 international and domestic firsts, is even more significant as a new national gate.
