Beijing has plans to open a mammoth new airport in 2017.
News.com.au reports that the Beijing Daxing International Airport will be "so large, it's capacity will be larger than New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport and London's Heathrow Airport combined, reports The Huffington Post.
The Huffington Post reported that the airport would be able to accommodate 23 million more passengers than JFK and Heahthrow annually with a whopping 130 million a year.
News.com.au reported that the airport will be 55 square kilometers and will feature eight commercial runways.
"Passengers will be able to jump onto a high-speed train that will take them to Beijing in less than 30 minutes." Adds news.com.au
Despite the airports size, The Daily Mail reported that it's not the biggest in the world. "That title goes to King Fahd International Airport in Damman, Saudi Arabia, which measures a massive 780 square kilometres," said The Daily Mail
Other new airports recently in the works around the world include, the recently proposed floating island airport in London, England named, London Brittania Airport that would involve four floating runways, attached to a sea bed.
Project director, Ian Mulcahey told the BBC, "The airport can be quickly manufactured in the ship yards and steel works across the UK and can be floated by sea and positioned in the Estuary. This isn't a London airport, it is a global airport, designed, manufactured and built in the UK."
The airport designed by architects at Gensler would connect to the city by high speed rail while passengers would be able to check in and arrive at the terminals on land.
