Second airport for Chengdu

12 March 2014
Chengdu will begin construction of a second airport in the first half of 2015, and possibly earlier, according to Tang Limin, head of Sichuan’s development and reform commission.

The new airport, located about 60km east of the city, will cost about Rmb54.5bn.

Chengdu will become the third city on the mainland to have a second airport, following Shanghai, which already has two, and Beijing, where a second airport will begin construction this year.

No details were given on when the new airport would open, but previous media reports said it might take three years to complete.

Increased passenger and cargo flow has made Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport the fifth busiest airport on the Chinese mainland, following those in Beijing, Guangzhou and Shanghai.

Chengdu plans to open more international air routes and attract 20 leading global companies this year to make itself more international. It aims to become the growth engine of the western region and a city with global appeal, said Huang Xinchu, Party chief of Chengdu.
