Beijing Daxing International Airport, nicknamed “Starfish”, is Beijing’s second super airport and was just brought to life a month ago as it’s first commercial flight touched down. Right behind Istanbul, this is the second largest single-building terminal in the world. Massive thanks to our Airport Editing team for the great work on this massively complex airport!
Quote from Tylor
There are four massive runways in this airport, capable of landing A380. This airport serves as the hub for Skyteam.
It is going to serve all Beijing, Tianjin, and Hebei. Currently, the Beijing Capital Int’l (PEK, or ZBAA) is running with extreme over-capacity. The ZBAA is designed to serve 80 million passengers per year but it is currently serving more than 100 million passengers a year in 2018.
That is where the Daxing Int’l (PKX, or ZBAD) come into play.
East 1 Runway: 3400 * 60m(11155 * 197ft)
North 1 Runway: 3800 * 60m(12467 * 197ft)
West 1 Runway: 3800 * 60m
West 2 Runway: 3800 * 45m(12467 *148ft)
West 2 Runway: 3800 *45m
It is expected that in 2040, the annual passenger traffic will be 100 million. In 2050, the traffic will be 130 million at least. There will be 4 runways for civil and 1 runway for military and the terminal building will be 70,0000 square meters. It is the first airport in China to accept intersection runways. As showed in the picture:
This airport was also built for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, so people from the world can came easily. The cool feature about this design is that it only takes 10 minutes to arrive at any gates for departure thanks to the “five-finger” shape where passenger walk to different gates from the center of this huge building.
