Expansion of Nanning Wuyu Airport approved


China’s National Development and Reform Commission and the General Staff of the People’s Liberation Army has approved the feasibility report for the expansion of the Nanning Wuyu International Airport flight area.
A new runway with a length of 3,200 meters and a width of 45 meters will be built east of the current runway to accommodate Class E type aircraft. There will be a Class I precision approach lighting system installed at each end of the runway. The current runway will be retrofitted as a parallel taxiway and be extended 500 meters to the north. There will also be three rapid exit taxiways and five vertical connection ways that will be established between the runway and taxiway. The new apron will occupy 29,360 sq.m. with 18 aircraft parking stands. Two control positions will be added to the air traffic management building. The airport’s runway takeoff line tower facility will be moved and an ATC automatic system installed. The navigation station will be moved to the south end of the new runway and the DVOR and DME equipment will be upgraded. A set of automatic weather observation systems will be upgraded and airport patrol road, fence, drainage and firefighting facilities will be established. The approved project cost is RMB 624 million. The expansion of the flight area is a key project of the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. The project will provide the opportunity for the Nanning Wuyu Airport to establish an international hub airport facing the Asean region.
