NACO designed the winning master plan for the world’s largest airport. The Beijing New International Airport (BNIA) will be built near the Chinese capital of Beijing in the Daxing District. With a capacity to handle up to 130 million annual passengers, the airport will have a total of eight runways. The current airport, Beijing Capital International Airport, will be reaching its design capacity within a few years, making the need for a new airport imminent.
NACO paid special attention to sustainability when designing the master plan for the new airport. Incorporated into the design are all modes of public transport (including high speed trains, metro and inter-airport trains) which will be processed in a Ground Transportation Center in front of the new terminals. The layout of the runways, taxiways and aprons have been carefully designed to keep taxi distances as short as possible, thereby lessening fuel burn and CO2 emissions.
