During the first six months of 2015, PEK handled 291,000 aircraft movements, up 2.58% year on year. Passenger numbers increased 5.99% to 44.07 million compared with the same period last year, in which international passengers accounted for 24.28% with a year-on-year increase of 0.5%.

The first-half results were better than expectation, said Shi Boli, general manager of the company, which laid a good foundation for becoming an international aviation hub.
