World’s Biggest Airport to Open in 2019

You won’t want to be caught in an insane flight delay at this airport! 

Welcome to Beijing New Airport, which experts say will eventually be the world’s largest—and for good reason. With four runways and a two million-square-foot terminal, the city’s second major airport will serve 45 million passengers annually once it opens. And thanks to two more additions in the works, that number could eventually reach 100 million passengers a year, Reuters reports. 

The Beijing New Airport, opening in the southern Daxing district in 2019, will serve as a way to meet the growing needs of air transport in Beijing and enhance the country’s civil aviation presence.



It will become the new base for China Southern Airlines and China Eastern Airlines, according to China’s National Development and Reform Commission. 

This will put the SkyTeam alliance members under one roof, allowing for easy flight connections for passengers.

According to BuroHappold Engineering, part of a consortium team that won the competition to help design elements of the space, visitors will find an array of open and expansive interiors.

The late architect Zaha Hadid designed the Beijing New Airport Terminal Building with two specific purposes in mind: to create a more compact building and reduce travel times. But he also wanted to pay tribute to the airport’s native country.



“The overall symmetry of the airport terminal design, together with its flowing, interconnected forms, create a fluid composition which evokes the harmony and balance evidence in Chinese landscapes, while its colors and materials are an expression of visual language within traditional Chinese culture,” Zaha Hadid Architecture’s website said.

The new airport will help ease travel times, with Beijing's Capital International Airport currently recognized as the second busiest in the world.
