Beijing Capital International Airport has some of the highest passenger numbers in the world.

In 2008, Beijing Capital International Airport received its first APM when the city hosted the Olympic Games. In November 2019 the JV and the airport signed the APM trains supply and upgrading contract – for Innovia APM 300 units. Despite COVID-19 challenges work on project design, production and delivery continued and train testing was completed at the start of July, ready for delivery.

PBTS was established in 2014 with a focus on manufacturing monorail and APM vehicles.
