By Agence France-Presse | China Daily | Updated: 2014-10-29 07:52

China will build its own airfield in Antarctica, media reported on Monday, as Beijing continues to expand its footprint in the most remote corners of the globe.

The airstrip will be built to support China's four research stations on the frozen continent, Beijing Evening News said, without giving details such as runway length or capacity.

"China has built four research stations in Antarctica, but does not have its own fixed-wing airport," the news-paper said.
