Prepare for takeoff.

Beijing’s much-anticipated new Daxing International Airport will begin flight tests for passenger planes on Monday, according to an official statement.

Air China, China Eastern Airlines and China Southern Airlines will send their flagship Boeing and Airbus planes on tests for what will become the capital’s third airport.

Built to take stress off Beijing Capital International Airport, one of the busiest in the world, the Daxing airport is expected to eventually handle 100 million passengers a year.
