S7 Airlines (S7, Novosibirsk) is switching its destination airport in Beijing from Beijing Capital to Beijing Daxing Int'l with the start of the Summer 2019 season, ch-aviation analysis of schedule data has revealed.

From March 29 onwards, the Russian carrier will operate its 9x weekly service from Irkutsk Int'l, weekly routes from Krasnoyarsk Yemelyanovo and Ulan-Ude, 11x weekly city pair from Novosibirsk, and 3x weekly rotations from Vladivostok to the new airport. S7 will fly a mixture of equipment on these routes including its A320-200neos, A320-200s, B737-800s, and E170s.

The Russian carrier joins a host of international airlines that have made the move from the Chinese capital city's main airport at Beijing Capital, including British Airways (BA, London Heathrow), Malaysia Airlines (MH, Kuala Lumpur Int'l), and Royal Air Maroc (AT, Casablanca Int'l).
