British Airways moves Beijing flights to new state-of-the-art Daxing airport

British Airways has revealed that all direct flights to and from Heathrow and Beijing will move to new state-of-the-art Daxing airport from 27 October. 

With the move, British Airways has become first international airline to confirm it will move all operations to Beijing Daxing.

The new airport is approximately 50km from both Beijing city centre and the Xiong’an New Area and only 80km from Tianjin. Transport connections to and from Beijing Daxing include four new highways, two new subway lines and a high-speed railway, which will carry customers to Beijing West Station in under 20 minutes.

Beijing Daxing, which is due to open in September 2019, will initially house four runways and one terminal building.

The London to Beijing route will continue as a daily service, operated by a Boeing 787-9 in the winter and a Boeing 777-300 in the summer.
