Beijing’s highly anticipated Daxing International Airport officially opened Wednesday, ahead of the Oct. 1 celebration marking the 70th anniversary of the People’s Republic of China.

President Xi Jinping visited the Chinese capital’s second major international airport to announce its official opening. In the afternoon, aircraft operated by seven Chinese airlines took off from the airport with select groups of passengers to mark the opening. Tickets for flights to and from the airport will go on sale to the public starting Monday.
