Daxing International Airport which will become the world’s largest airport has been finished in Beijing. The complex construction has been created and the full capacity of this building wonder will be 100 million people.
The size of the airport’s terminal is correspondent to 25 football fields, and the airport covers the territory of 1.4 million square meters. The work has finished a few days ago, and the precise location is 46km south of downtown Beijing.
If it all goes well, the airport will be open its doors before the end of September and will work a full schedule. The cost of the investment was around $60 billion Li Jianhua, a project manager said RIA.
The main function of this airport is to reduce pressure on the overcrowded Beijing Capital International Airport. The Chine want to become the largest civil aviation in the world on the market, and this airport is the first step of achieving that.

The terminal building is also the world’s largest built with seamless steel structure, boasting the world’s first design of double-deck departure and double-deck arrival platforms,’’ explained Bai Henghong, director of the Beijing Daxing International Airport project command of Beijing Construction Group.
This is the most expensive airport ever built, and the maiden flight will be Airbus A380.
