China’s new $11bn mega airport has opened its doors.
The Daxing International Airport in the capital Beijing was formally opened by President Xi Jinping on Wednesday.
The airport spans 700,000 square metres, or 98 football fields.
Beijing’s current airport is the world’s second busiest behind Atlanta which is the US.
The new airport was needed to take the pressure off the overcrowded Beijing Capital International Airport.
The first airline to operate out of the new terminal will be China Southern Airlines and China Eastern Airlines.
