Event description
China's capital Beijing announced its plan to build the world's largest airport that can accommodate up to 100 million passengers by 2040.

China is set to build the world's largest international airport that can cater to 100 million passengers at a cost of $13.1 billion.

SIA City Holdings Co. Ltd. Deputy Director Wang Baoling gave the timetable for the planned airport during the China Design Festival in Beijing.

"The new airport will experience two phases of construction and will have an annual throughput capacity of 100 million passengers by 2040, becoming the world's largest airport," Wang said.

Chinese officials confirmed that in five years, the airport will start operating with four runways, accommodating some 45 million passengers annually.

By 2025, the airport will have reached partial completion, and could cater to almost three quarters, or 72 million of the expected target. It is also expected to carry two tons of cargo and mail, and will have four airstrips by then.

Xinhua reports that all in all, they plan to create seven runways and a freight capacity of 4 million tons.

The new airport will be situated in the Beijing's Daxing District, and is set to be fully functional by 2040.
