13:25, March 15, 2013

Dongzhimen subway station is considering offering airport check-in service, where passengers can check in their luggage and get a boarding pass, Beijing Morning Post reported on Friday, citing a source at Beijing airport express.

Construction of an airport check-in hall inside the subway station would involve multiple parties, and the subway company would be mainly responsible for organizing the traffic flow of passengers, said Chen Youjun, a station director of Beijing airport express.

Beijing airport express handles daily traffic of around 32,000 passengers, and 50,800 at peak times such as national holidays, and summer and winter school breaks.

Trains leave Dongzhimen station, the starting point of a 26.1-kilometer line, every 10 minutes and run through four stops before arriving at Beijing Capital International Airport in Shunyi district, in northeast Beijing.

At present, in-town check-in service is available in Abu Dhabi, Seoul, Hong Kong and other cities, where passengers can avoid queuing at the airport and reduce check-in time by checking luggage in designated places within the city but outside the airport.
