New Chinese airport planned

A new airport is planned in Daxing, which will serve Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei. Construction is expected to start before July, with an estimate opening date of 2018.

The new airport will serve an annual passenger volume of 45 million in 2020, 72 million in 2025 and 100 million in the longer term. The aim is to ease pressure on Beijing Capital Airport (PEK), which is suffering from severe slot shortages.

China Southern Airlines is mooted to have signed a cooperation agreement with the Beijing government to allocate 200 aircraft—A330s and A380s—from PEK to the new airport in Daxing.
