Where Is Beijing Daxing Airport?
Beijing Daxing International Airport (PKX/ZBAD), a civil airport, has a flight area grade of 4F (the highest level). It is positioned as a super-large international aviation integrated transportation hub, and four runways are currently planned.
Today, the name of the airport is “Beijing Daxing International Airport”, but its area is not limited to Daxing District of Beijing, but spans two provinces and cities, and also occupies land in Guangyang District, Langfang City, Hebei Province. Guangyang District is one of the central municipal districts of Langfang. Langfang people’s Government, Langfang North Station and a large part of the old city of Langfang are located in this area.
Of course, the land of Daxing Airport is on the edge of Guangyang District, which is the suburb of Langfang. The suburbs belong to the suburbs, and Langfang is not big after all, and this location is only about 25 kilometers away from the main city of Langfang. It is only a little more than the straight line distance from Tiananmen Square to Tongzhou.
It is worth noting that although the new airport is named “Beijing”, it actually uses a lot of land in Hebei Province. The land under the jurisdiction of Tuancheng, Tuancheng Xinzhuang and Bigezhuang three administrative villages under the jurisdiction of Jiuzhou Town, Guangyang District, Langfang City, Hebei Province is the main area of the terminal. While some other airport facilities are each occupied by Hebei and Beijing, most of them are occupied by Beijing.
Who Is near Beijing Daxing Airport?
Daxing Airport is close to Daxing and Langfang, so it will be convenient for residents of the two places to travel. However, it is too bad for the state to invest on such a large scale to build such a world-class airport, which only serves Daxing and Langfang. The real purpose of Daxing Airport is to provide support for the coordinated development of traffic and economy in Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei.
First of all, there are two civil aviation airports in Beijing (Beijing Capital International Airport and Beijing Nanyuan Airport), but according to the plan, on the day when the new airport is put into operation, the civil aviation function of Nanyuan Airport will also be closed. So at that time, Beijing will still have only two civil aviation airports.
Which Airlines Are the First to Enter Beijing Daxing Airport?
Before October 26 (inclusive), China United Airlines will become the only airline to make an overall transition and operate at Daxing Airport.

Domestic airlines include China Southern Airlines, China Eastern Airlines, Air China, China United Airlines, Hebei Airlines, Capital Airlines and auspicious Airlines. Foreign airlines include British Airways, Polish Airlines, Finnish Airlines, Malaysia Airlines, Royal Moroccan Airlines, Royal Brunei Airlines, Russian Airways and Himalayan Airlines.
In order to ensure the safe, smooth and orderly operation of the transition, only a small number of flights will be arranged at the initial airport, and the relevant domestic airlines will transfer gradually in stages and complete the transition before the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympic Games.
In the winter and spring season of 2019, Daxing International Airport is expected to open 116 routes, including 101 domestic routes and 15 international routes, covering 112 destinations around the world, including 97 domestic destinations and 15 international destinations.
