"I used to be very frustrated when traveling by air since I need to spend over 1.5 hours on the subway to get to the Capital airport. But once the Daxing airport is in operation, it will be cut to 40 minutes," he said.

"I have bought tickets to my hometown Guangzhou from the new airport for the National Day holiday, and I'm thrilled to explore the cutting-edge technologies and the interesting design of the terminal," he added.

The new airport, constructed to meet China's surging air service demand and take the pressure off Beijing Capital International Airport, will serve as the second international airport for Beijing.

With four runways, 268 parking bays and a vast terminal building covering 700,000 square meters, the new airport is expected to handle 45 million passengers a year by 2021 and 72 million by 2025.
