Beijing’s new mega-airport begins first test flights
On Monday, 13th May, Chinese airlines took test flights at a new mega airport in Peking, which will become one of the biggest airports in the world after it closes later this year.
According to the formal Xinhua news organization, the testing at the Daxing International Airport (with eight tracks) engaged four wide-body aircraft, including a super-jumbo Airbus A380.
CCTV images show that big airplanes from China Airlines and other national airlines land and taxi on the grounds of the airport.
The aircraft was designed to evaluate the overall supportability of the airport, CCTV said, with additional tests planned for August and September.
The airport is due to operate by Sep 30, stated by Xinhua.
To reduce the passenger burden of the two other airports in Beijing, Daxing is anticipated to function fully by 2025 and carry 72 million passengers a year.
As increasing wealth drives transport among an enormous workforce, China now has the highest expanding aerospace industry in the world, which has fought for fundamental necessities for a century.
