Nanjing Lukou International Airport passenger volume reaches 7 million


The Nanjing Lukou International Airport is registering an upward trend on its passenger and cargo transport in November. By mid-November, Nanjing Lukou International Airport had handled seven million passengers, up by 28.3 percent compared to the same period last year and exceeding the total throughput in 2004. The airport has maintained a rapid growth rate on passenger and cargo, and was ranked 13th among China’s international airports which handle over one million passengers a year. It is expected to reach eight million passengers by the end of 2007. At present, Nanjing Lukou International Airport is handling 63 air routes regularly flying to domestic and foreign cities. It registered over 70,000 movements, higher by 28.6 percent on a year-on-year basis. Its cargo and mail throughput exceeded 150,000 tons, higher by 17 percent compared to the same period last year. By the end of this year, its freight traffic is expected to reach 180,000 tons. The airport’s strategic location in Jiangsu Province, near the Yangtze River Delta Area, gives it the advantage. With the improvement of its infrastructure, the Nanjing Lukou International Airport continually attracts airlines to open new routes in Nanjing. Shenzhen Airlines has Nanjing Lukou International Airport as its base. Nineteen domestic airlines and six foreign (regional) airlines operate at Lukou International Airport.
