Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport

Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport

Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport is located in the north of Shuangliu County, about 16 kilometers southwest of downtown Chengdu. It is the biggest airport in southwest China. In 2008, it was the busiest airport in Western China and the 6th busiest airport nationwide in terms of passenger traffic.

Chengdu airport, formerly a military airfield, was opened in 1938. At that time, it possessed only earth surface for small biplanes to take off and touch down. In 1943, a runway rolled with limes and pebbles were established, allowing the United States Army Air Force B-29 bombing planes to carry out their missions to attack Japan from India. It was one of four B-29 bases established by the Americans in China.

The airport is now an international civil airport with flights to more than 20 international destinations and many domestic airports. An expressway linked the airport with downtown Chengdu.

A large-scale expansion was conducted on flight area and navigation area from 1994 to 2001. The runway was extended to 3,600 m with Class 4E rating, allowing for larger jumbo jets including Boeing 747-400. The newly built terminal building was incorporated with three-parallel-porch design, accommodating an hourly capacity of 3,500 passengers at rush hours.
