The Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport’s passenger throughput will exceed 40 million this year.
“The passenger traffic of the Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport exceeded 35 million in October, and it’s expected to hit 40 million around the 10th of next month to create a record high in history,” said Tang Yiwei, marketing deputy director of the Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport, on November 17th. To date, only the Beijing Capital International Airport, Shanghai Pudong International Airport and Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport on the Chinese mainland have accomplished the volume.
In addition, the Shuangliu International Airport’s international passenger throughput will exceed 4 million this year, accounting for 10% of the year’s total traffic. Last year, the airport’s passenger throughput ranked No.38 among all of its global counterparts. With the breakthrough of this year, the airport will hopefully earn a place on the international “top-30” list in terms of the volume.
According to data published by relevant civil aviation administration, the passenger throughput of southwest China was about 130 million in the past 10 months, and that of the Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport reached 35.65 million, up 12.8% year on year. The number of Sichuan accounted for one third of southwest China’s total, and Chengdu’s for one fourth.
According to statistics, by now the Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport has opened 84 international and regional routes, topping all cities in central and western China. In mid-November, Air China will launch a direct air service between Chengdu and Paris, which will be the fifth direct route between Chengdu and Europe.
