The new Beijing International Airport is now under construction. According to a report in Jinghua Times, travelers will soon enjoy more convenient channels for arriving at and departing the new airport.

Domestic arrivals and departures, as well as international arrivals and departures, are all planned to be on separate floors of the airport, which will help to ease traffic congestion in front of the terminal.

Each floor will also feature a direct street entrance. At the same time, a high-speed rail will run directly underneath the airport, which will be the first time such a setup has been employed in any airport around the world.

The new airport will be in Daxing district, 46 kilometers south of Tian'anmen Square. It will be 67 kilometers from Beijing Capital International Airport.

The airport will feature a six-pier radial concept that has been designed to increase connectivity and reflect the Chinese landscape and culture.

The new structure will also include four runways, 150 parking aprons for passenger jets, 24 parking aprons for cargo aircraft, 14 maintenance areas and a terminal building with a surface area of 700,000 square meters.

As for the subterranean high-speed rail, a station of the Beijing-Kowloon high-speed railway will be set up in the terminal's underground.
