"One City, Two Events" Jointly Guarantee Capital Civil Aviation Operations
The establishment of Beijing's "one city, two games" pattern has greatly eased the operational pressure of the Capital Airport. "There are many flights to and from the port. Sometimes the aircraft is launched or landed, and we have to wait for a long time on the runway, but now this situation is rare." Dalian Airlines flight attendant Shen Hao deeply felt this.
"At the beginning of the construction of the T3 terminal of the Capital Airport, it bears the heavy task of receiving the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, but no one expected that China's development would be so fast. The Capital Airport, which was thought to be 'enough' at that time, is now operating at full capacity. This has also witnessed the rapid development of China. "Xue Xu, an associate professor at the School of Economics at Peking University and the secretary general of the Marketing Expert Committee of the China Marketing Association, said.
According to the official data of Beijing Capital Airport, the annual passenger throughput of Beijing Capital Airport will exceed 100 million passengers again in 2019, ranking among the top in the world. It is not easy to complete such a huge transportation task safely, smoothly, and on time. It requires the cooperation of multiple forces such as public security, logistics, and service.

It is understood that, in order to ensure the safety of inbound and outbound flights, the Capital Airport issues early warning based on snowfall weather, and performs ice and snow removal work in advance. During the heavy snowfall in mid-December last year, the Capital Airport arranged nearly 400 people and 67 deicing vehicles in terms of snow and ice protection to fully guarantee the normal operation of the airport.
In addition to the workers that these passengers can see, another group of workers is silently guarding the safety of passengers entering and leaving the port. "In order to ensure the absolute security of the air defense of the Capital Airport and good social order, we have combined the prominent characteristics of illegal and disorderly behavior in the airport area, and implemented a work model based on individual policy, classified management, and key strikes. Public security prevention and control completely covers no blind spots, "said Liu Sixiao, a policeman at the police station in the West Terminal of the Capital Airport Public Security Bureau.
In addition, Liu Sixiao said that the police at the Capital Airport are also advancing with the times. By strengthening the application of technology and information technology, it will create smart public security in the new era, solve a series of problems that passengers urgently pay attention to, and continuously improve the sense of security of passenger travel. Satisfaction.
Xue Xu pointed out that the mutual cooperation between Daxing Airport and Capital Airport will effectively alleviate the problems of heavy shipping pressure and waterway congestion in Beijing, and will effectively contribute to the 2022 Winter Olympics and other important international conference activities. .
"Currently, China's cities that form a" one city, two games "pattern include Beijing and Shanghai. The cooperation between Shenzhen and Guangzhou airports is also very effective. These six airports are China's Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei, Yangtze River Delta, and Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. Creating an important carrier of world-class airport clusters has not only become an important transportation hub, but has also played an important role in promoting local socio-economic development and the construction of urban agglomerations.
