The main construction of the China aviation oil storage tank has been completed and water tests and pressure tests have been completed. The main structure of airline staff apartment, air food catering center and the supporting business rooms have been completed or are to be completed. The construction of supporting transportation projects within the airport has been accelerated, and the viaducts to and from the airports and the comprehensive rail transit within it have been connected.
In order to scientifically balance the construction, acceptance, handover, operational preparation and other work, CAAC formulated a comprehensive management plan according to the overall timeline of construction and operational preparation of Beijing Daxing International Airport. The management plan defines a roadmap, timeline, assignment and a responsibility sheet regarding the construction and operational preparation of the airport. In the next step, on the basis of supervising all units to truly implement the comprehensive management plan according to the overall timeline, the focus of CAAC will be shifted from project construction to operational preparation, from major projects to supporting projects, from internal to external coordination, and from ground to air construction, so as to ensure that the new airport will be put into operation as scheduled.
