It will be extended to Beijing CBD sometime between 2020-2021.
Can you provide any details on that? From what I've read, the New Airport subway line will terminate at Caoqiao initially, with a future northern extension to Lize Business District (connecting to 14 and 16), outside the second ring road. The initially planned extension to Mudanyuan appears to have been cancelled.

They are. I meant to type PKX.

In theory, sure. But there will be an intercity rail line (200 km/h) and a subway line connecting the two airports eventually.
