Read more about it here: Beijing is building hundreds of airports as millions of Chinese take to the skies
An excerpt from CNN Travel:
Handling more than 100 million passengers in 2018, Beijing's existing Capital International Airport is now the second busiest airport in the world after Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and is hitting full capacity.
At present an average of eight new airports are opening in the country every year.
New airports will also be built in China's west, where there are currently fewer facilities. This will aid the development of this region both for business and tourism but also further Beijing's push to exert its influence over far-flung regions.
"The mainland government has a very clear development strategy to promote the economic development in the less developed areas and locations like the western and northeastern parts of China," says Cheung Kwok Law, director of policy at the Chinese University of Hong Kong's Aviation Policy and Research Centre.
