A Chinese passenger was seen sprinting across an airport's apron to catch their boarding pass which was blown away by strong winds in the Chinese capital.

Footage showed the desperate man chasing after his ticket on the ramp of Beijing Capital International Airport as he was trying to board his flight to Shanghai on May 5.

He managed to fetch his ticket and got on the plane after the exhausting run, Chinese media reported.

The incident happened at the terminal three of the capital's airport on Friday morning. 

Mr Wang was waiting to board his flight with other passengers on the apron, according to Pear Video. 

As he pulled out his ticket to prepare for boarding, a huge gust of wind sent his ticket flying.

'It was blown away in a blink. I had to fetch it as the luggage ticket was also attached to it,' Mr Wang said.

Passengers of the same flight then watched the man sprinting across the apron for around 1,640 metres to grasp the ticket.

'I hadn't been running that fast since graduating from high school,' the man said. 

Mr Wang said he was flying to Shanghai on that day, on his Weibo account.

The video has attracted over 2.4 million views and thousands of comments on the micro-blogging platform. 

'It's so dangerous - although his response was very understandable.' another user commented. 

'He ran so fast. He should have joined the national track & field team.' one user joked.  

'The onlookers should ask him not to chase after the ticket' a user said.

Mr Wang is not the only victim of the recent extreme weather in Beijing. 

A sandstorm blown by gusting winds hit the capital on May 4 bringing thick pollution thought to be hazardous to people venturing outdoors.

The Beijing Meteorological Observatory advised people to minimize time spent outdoors.

Residents in municipal Beijing were told to use masks or scarves when outside to protect their eyes and lungs. The low visibility prompted warnings for drivers to slow down and for airports to take precautions.
