The Beijing Capital International Airport reminded passengers to arrive early for flights during the 40-day Spring Festival travel rush, which started on Jan 26.

The travel peak at the airport will be on Jan 29 and Feb 1, 2 and 15, said Wang Hanlin, assistant general manager of the airport’s operation control center.

The airport will handle an average of 220,000 passengers per day during the busy period, with the peak days seeing some 244,000 passengers daily, Wang estimated.

Passengers whose flights depart between 7 am and 10 am in the morning, or between 2 pm and 4 pm in the afternoon, should arrive at the airport earlier than usual and allow time for check-in and security checks, he said.

The airport is expected to see a passenger throughput of 8.8 million during the 40 days, up 4.86 percent from the same period last year, he said.
