Optimize flight taxi routes and shorten the time of incoming and outgoing flights
This year, Daxing Airport has completed three transfers and one flight season change, so how convenient is it for passengers to depart from Daxing Airport?
Peng Peng, director of the control and operation department of the Daxing Air Traffic Control Center, said that the most obvious change is the shortening of the aircraft's taxiing route and the shortening of the time for flights to enter and leave the port.
For example, he said: "For example, there was a flight landing on Dongyi Runway. It had a fixed route for taxiing and may detour for a period of time. This is also to ensure the separation of incoming and outgoing flights.
