By 2027, Beijing plans to introduce more than 10 new application scenarios related to low-altitude aerial vehicles, including emergency rescue, courier delivery, air shuttling, inter-city commuting, and cultural tourism. The city also seeks to open more than three low-altitude air routes connecting neighboring regions.

The Beijing Municipal Bureau of Economy and Information Technology recently released an action plan to foster the high-quality development of low-altitude aerial vehicles and use cases from 2024 to 2027. The bureau is currently soliciting public opinions on the plan.

Regarded as an emerging strategic sector, the low-altitude aerial vehicle sector involves application cases such as sightseeing, transportation, delivery services, and scientific research and education.

The plan sets specific development goals, including increasing the number of related enterprises to over 5,000 within three years. The city also aims to expand low-altitude technical services nationwide and significantly enhance the industry's domestic and international influence, contributing over 100 billion yuan (US$13.8 billion) to the city's economy growth.

In terms of inter-city commuting, air routes will be established between Beijing Daxing International Airport and Xiong'an New Area, as well as between Beijing Capital International Airport and regions like Tianjin and Langfang. 

The Chinese capital also plans to develop low-altitude air tourism in the suburban Yanqing, Pinggu, and Miyun districts.
