China conducts largest-ever scale airspace adjustment due to opening of Daxing

Mon Oct 21, 2019 2:32 pm

Key points:

:arrow: The airspace adjustment triggered by Daxing Airport represented the largest-ever scale of airspace adjustment between China's military and civilian authorities according to the CAAC Air Traffic Management Bureau.

:arrow: The available civilian airspace for Beijing expands to 34,500 square kilometers, twice the previous area.

:arrow: Nationwide, more than 200 airways and 4,000 flight routes were optimized to form a new airspace operating environment.

:arrow: The adjustments began at the China-Mongolia border in the north down 2,200 km to Guangxi in the south, and spread 1,350 km from western Inner Mongolia to Liaoning in Northeast China


Will this “largest-ever” adjustment in Chinese airspace noticeably lessen the notorious congestions and delays in air traffic in China? Probably not given the dire paucity of airspace reserved for civilian use relative to the exponential growth of air travel in the country. We’ll see :stirthepot:

I wish there were maps that showed the before and after.

They need to do something. I always fear the phrase ‘military is doing exercises’ because you know there will be delays.

Given that this new space is now twice the size it should help reduce delays, it should but don't hold your breath.
you don't get a second chance to make a first impression!
Growing older, but not up.
