BCIA Annouces 4th Runway Plans


Huang Gang, Vice General Manager of Beijing Capital International Airport, announced that BCIA plans to build a fourth runway to increase the passenger output of China’s busiest airport. The fourth runway announcement makes BCIA the first facility in China using more than two runways. Currently, BCIA is set to handle 150-160 million passengers annually, with a runway capacity of 110m. The new runway will increase the efficiency of the airport, which currently faces extended taxi times during peak operation hours. BCIA is planning to construct the fourth runway to the east of the airport, approximately 300 meters. When the fourth runway is completed, it is believed that these capacity issues will be resolved.
