Xi'an Xianyang International Airport was also the 15th busiest airport in terms of cargo traffic and the 9th busiest airport by traffic movements.

Another RMB7.592 billion invested project is scheduled to be established by 2020. It will build a third 170,000-square-meter terminal building; a second 3,800-meter runway; and related support facilities. After expansion, the airport will reach 26 million passengers annually, and will become the fourth Chinese airport with independent parallel operation of instrument runways.
