Development of Guangxi civil aviation set


Nanning, the capital of Guangxi Autonomous Region, and the Civil Aviation Administration of China signed the minutes of talks for expediting development of Guangxi civil aviation on April 26. Governor Lu Bing, Vice Governor Mu Hong of Guangxi Autonomous Region and Vice Minister Gao Hongfeng of CAAC signed the minutes. Both parties agreed that during the 11th Five-Year Plan, the CAAC will set aside at least RMB 800 million for the Guangxi Airport construction fund, and that Guangxi will match it with the same amount. The fund will support the expansion project of the Nanning Wuyu International Airport, which will have a new runway with grade 4E standard, and a bigger terminal building accommodating 10 million passengers per year. Nanning Airport is being groomed to be an international gateway hub airport serving ASEAN countries. Guilin Airport will expand its flight area to accommodate the super jumbo A380, and expand the terminal building. The airport is seen as an important tourism hub airport. Construction of regional airports in Guangxi will be expedited, and Hechi Airport will be established. Liuzhou, Wuzhou, and Baise Airports will be retrofitted and expanded. The expansion project of the Beihai Airport will be completed and the primary work of Leye Airport will be developed. Meanwhile, the CAAC is encouraging airlines to open regional flights from Nanning and Guilin Airports. It is also supporting the opening of trunk routes throughout China, and the opening of international flights to ASEAN countries, Japan, Korea, Europe and America. The opening of flights departing from Guangxi regional airports to main domestic cities such as Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou will be given preference.
