China’s (STM) Alliance members (including China Southern Airlines (GUN), China Eastern Airlines (CEA) and Xiamen Airlines (XIA)) currently operate in Beijing Capital Airport’s Terminal 2. (STM) Alliance Managing Director, Michael Wisbrun has reportedly discussed the plan to move to the new airport with the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) (CAC).
The new airport, which was approved at the end of last year, will have 6 runways for civilian use and will be located in southern Beijing’s Daxing district. It has not officially been given a name yet.
Once the airport is operational, the Beijing Nanyuan Airport (which serves as a military and civilian base for (CUL) in the southern Fengtai district) will be closed. China United Airlines (CUL), a wholly owned subsidiary of China Eastern Airlines (CEA), is also expected to move to the new airport.
The new airport, which has been in the planning stage for years, will shoulder part of the traffic at Beijing Capital Airport. Last year, Beijing Capital handled 80 million passengers, exceeding its planned capacity of 76 million passengers by 2015. The planned capacity for the Beijing Daxing airport is 70 million passengers a year, but will initially handle 45 million passengers a year after the 1st stage is completed.

The subsidiary operates >50 domestic routes; passenger boardings are expected to exceed >5 million this year, up +43% compared to 3.5 million last year.
More and more (LCC)s are springing up in China after the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) (CAC) adopted more favorable policies to lower standards and simply procedures to take advantage of China’s domestic market potential and continuous economic growth.
