Tianjin branch and the tianjin binhai international airport co., LTD. Signed a strategic cooperation agreement, promote the tianjin binhai international airport email turn the scale, expand international mail import function, for the tianjin binhai international airport Beijing freight function organization, China international aviation logistics center construction.
“Since the coordinated development of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region has become a major national strategy, the airports of the three regions, in accordance with the unified national deployment, are striving to build a world-class group of airports with division of labor and cooperation, complementary advantages and coordinated development.” Tianjin Binhai International Airport Co., Ltd. Chairman, General Manager Lv Zhinong said.
The Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region is where China first “took off”. More than a century ago, in 1910, the first airport in China’s history was built in the south of Beijing. It was later named Nanyuan Airport, the birthplace of China’s civil aviation industry. In 1950, the first civil air route of New China started from Tianjin, so Tianjin Binhai International Airport was named as the “Cradle of Civil Aviation of New China”. In 1958, the Capital Airport was officially put into operation, becoming the first civilian airport in New China…
Since the 1990s, airport construction in Hebei Province has entered a stage of rapid development. Shijiazhuang, Zhangjiakou, Qinhuangdao, Chengde, Xingtai and other airports have been completed and put into operation one after another, making the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region a dense area of airports.
Since 2014, the integration of transport has become one of the first three breakthrough areas in the coordinated development strategy of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, and the airports of the three regions have started closer cooperation at a higher level.
First of all, the combined transport between ground, air and railway has been further promoted. After shijiazhuang airport by “high iron + shuttle buses” realize “1 hour + 5 minutes” with Beijing traffic after stroke, in August 2014, tianjin binhai international airport T2 terminal building and ground transportation center put into use synchronization, tianjin metro line 2 access tianjin binhai international airport, the tianjin binhai international airport in Beijing railway traffic circle “” 1 hour.
Secondly, the three airport management system straighten out. As early as 2002, Tianjin Binhai International Airport has joined the Capital Airport Group Corporation, realizing the true sense of enterprise restructuring; In May 2015, Hebei Airport Group, which owns a large number of airports, was formally incorporated into the management of the Capital Airport Group Company, marking a new historical stage of unified management and integrated operation of the three major airports in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region.
Third, the layout of the three airports took on a new look. In December 2014, the National Development and Reform Commission announced the approval of the feasibility study report on Beijing’s new airport project, and immediately started construction. The design target is to handle 72 million passengers, 2 million tons of cargo and mail, and 620,000 flights in 2025…
In 2017, the National Development and Reform Commission, the Civil Aviation Administration of China jointly issued the national civil transport airport layout plan, clearly put forward to build world-class airport group of the beijing-tianjin-hebei region, the end of the year, the two departments and issued by the implementation opinion “to promote the coordinated development of beijing-tianjin-hebei civil aviation”, a clear division of beijing-tianjin-hebei world-class airport group of the construction of formation of internationally competitive positioning – Beijing “double hub airport, tianjin, shijiazhuang airport will markedly enhance its capability of regional aviation hub radiation, tianjin built international aviation logistics center in our country.
On September 25, 2019, the last plane from Beijing Nanyuan Airport flew to Beijing Daxing International Airport, the former was officially closed, while the latter was officially put into operation. CAAC Beijing Terminal Control Center has also begun to coordinate and direct the operation of medium and low altitude flights at Beijing Capital, Beijing Daxing and Tianjin Binhai, and Shijiazhuang Airport will also be under its command in the long run.
“At present, the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei world-class airport group has formed a three-tier airport echelon of ‘double core’ (Capital Airport + Daxing Airport), ‘double auxiliary’ (Tianjin Binhai Airport + Shijiazhuang Airport), and ‘multi-node’ (regional airport + general aviation airport).” Meng Xianwei, Deputy General Manager of the Strategic Development Department of Capital Airport Group Corporation, said that the aviation hub is not only a transportation hub, but also a product of the integration of “Hong Kong-produced cities”. The construction of airport clusters has a comprehensive significance for serving the development of world-class city clusters in Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei.
