Beijing’s New International Airport Set to Open in 2019
Beijing’s new airport is set to begin operations in 2019. The airport which can handle 100 million passengers and 2 million tons of cargo annually will become the world’s largest airport. Engineering projects will be finished in July 2019, and the test operation will begin three months later. Located 46 kilometers south to the center of Beijing, the airport will relieve some pressure on the over-crowded Beijing Capital International Airport to ease traffic congestion.
