Shuangliu International Airport’s Fifth apron approved


The Sichuan Provincial Development and Reform Commission officially approved the feasibility report of the fifth apron of the Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport this October. The proposed construction of the fifth airport is a result of the increasing passenger traffic demand, availability of aircraft parking, and provision for infrastructure service for air transport. The planned apron will be near the test running apron at the south end of the runway of Shuangliu Airport. A total area of 154,024 sq. m. will be allotted for the apron construction with a surface area of 152,917 sq. m. designed to hold the taxi weight of B747-400 aircraft. There will be nine design positions for aircraft, seven positions for B747-400 and two positions for A380. This will add over 850,000 square meters of aircraft parking area and about 70 aircraft parking positions to the entire Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport. The proposed construction will include water supply, power, firefighting, and fuel. The construction of the fifth apron is expected to begin simultaneously with the second runway and new terminal building by the end of this year. The proposed construction will reach a total investment of RMB 109.6 million.
