Bejing Nanjiao airbase at 3929'10"N 11622'08"E [39.486N, 116.368E] is located in the southern suburbs of Beijing (Nanjiao means "southern suburbs" in Chinese). This PLAAF facility has 11 large (97mX65m), 8 small (50mX55m) & 2 repair hangars, ammo barracks, and a huge admin complex. Could possibly be an AEW C2 center. There are 2 UG ops rooms, and 1 UG C4ISR center. With a single 10,000 foot runway, it should not be confused with Mianyang Nanjiao Airport (IATA: MIG, ICAO: ZUMY), an airport serving the city of Mianyang in Sichuan Province, China.

Bejing Nanjiao airbase is a military satellite facility adjacent to but not evidently connected with Beijing Daxing Airport 3930'36"N 11624'39"E [39.51N, 116.41E], located in the north of Yongding River among the three areas of Yufa Township and Lixian Township in south of Daxing District in the southern Beijing and Guangyang District of Langfang City, along the Hebei border. Daxing Airport lies approx.46km to the south of Tiananmen square, 68km to the south of Beijing Capital International Airport; 85km to the west of Tianjin; Shijiazhuang 225km, Chengde 218km and Qinhuangdao 276km. It not only serves Beijing but also Tianjin and Hebei Province, linking Beijing airports, Tianjin Binhai International Airport and Shijiazhuang Airport, creating the largest airport cluster in the northern China.

Beijing Daxing International Airport is also known as Beijing Capital (Second) International Airport, Beijings second International airport. The construction of Beijings new airport starts in 2014 and plans to be finished in 2018. Beijing capital airport was already at its design capacity with some 74 million passengers per year. The new airport was planned to have the ability to handle a reported 45 million in 2020, 72 million in 2025, and 100 million passengers per year in a long run more than Londons Heathrow and New Yorks JFK airports put together.

Upon completion, Daxing Airport replaced Nanyuan Airport in Beijings south, and became the Beijing hub for China Eastern, China Southern and their Skyteam alliance partners. It became the largest airport in the world when it opened in 2018.

The idea of the Beijing Capitals second international airport was proposed back to the year of 2006. The two year later in 2008, China Development Reform Committee set up the team for selecting the new airport location. Tianjin Wuqing, Hebei Langfang and Beijing Daxing contended for the new airport. At last Daxing District made it.

In the 2011, the construction of Daxing Airport kicked off. The construction of Daxing Airprot has been involved with total investment of 80.3 Billion Yuan. In December, 2016, Daxing Airports main terminal building was finished and on test operation in April, 2017. It was put into full operation in October, 2017. The Beijing Municipal Government has selected a consortium led by NACO Netherlands Airport Consultants as the designers of the Beijings second international airport at Daxing.
