Getting to and from the new Beijing Daxing Airport
British Airways will move its operations from Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK) to the newly developed Beijing Daxing Airport (PKX). The new service will begin flights from London Heathrow to Beijing Daxing Airport from Saturday 26 October 2019 and flights from Daxing Airport to London Heathrow will commence from Sunday 27 October 2019. The new airport is approximately 50km from both Beijing city centre and the Xiong'an New Area and only 80km from Tianjin. Transport connections to and from Beijing Daxing include four new highways and both a new high-speed subway and railway line, which will carry customers to Caoqiao or Beijing West stations in around 20 minutes. Bus and taxi services will also be available. Customers transferring to other flights will also benefit from its status as the only through check-in airport in China.
