The first international flights to Beijing Daxing Airport take off



(CNN) – Beijing, far beyond the Daxine International Airport (PKX), has come to its name with the first flights departing abroad.

Zaha Hadid Airport, opened right in front of the country by the widely celebrated commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China on October 1.

The first outbound international flight at the airport, a China Airways route to Bangkok, departed at 7:50 local time on 27 October.

The first inbound international arrival, British Airways flight 39 landed at the airport about an hour and a half later at 9:1

3.

The airport, which was already named "star" because of its multidisciplinary look, was officially opened for business by Chinese President Xi Jinping.

China Southern and China Eastern airlines will make Daxing their main base, while Air China will be mainly based at Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK).

According to state broadcaster CCTV, there are currently 12 flights a day from Daxing that go to Macau, Hong Kong and Taiwan, which represents about 3% of total airport traffic.

The goal is to increase this number to 22 flights a day by March 2020.

Daxing has more than just planes. It is also home to Aerotel Beijing, the largest airport hotel in the country.

Currently, PEK Airport is the second busiest in the world, after only Hartsfield Jackson Airport in Atlanta, United States. Shanghai Pudong Airport (PVG) ranks number nine.

According to current forecasts, China will cross the US to become the best aviation market in the world by 2023.

In addition to adding a brand new airport, China has other plans to stimulate tourism in the country,

Earlier this month, several other cities, including Xi'an and Chengdu, were added to the list of cities with a 144-hour (six-day) residency visa, which means tourists can now get a simpler visa for departures in those cities, if they can prove that they are moving to another country.
