AIRPORT OF THE WEEK:ATC now features an airport each week! This airport will remain open throughout the entire week except for during the FNF. Each airport featured is one of 2017's busiest airports.
This week’s featured airport is:
Beijing Capital International Airport [ZBAA]
The Beijing Airport is the 2nd busiest airport in the world and has risen to the top of the ranks in every category possible since the early 2000’s. ZBAA has a seemingly unlimited capacity with it’s massive ramps, 3 parallel runways, and expansive layout.
