China is ready now to open a new mega-airport, south of Beijing, already home to the world’s second-busiest aviation hub, according to CNN.
Beijing Daxing International Airport (PKX) will see its first commercial flight take off around September 20.
The existing Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK) is hitting full capacity, making it nearly impossible for airlines to add flights at desirable times.
In 2018, more than 100 million travelers passed through its three terminals — making it only the second airport in the world to cross that passenger traffic milestone, after Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta. China is projected to overtake the United States as the world’s biggest air travel market by 2022.
