Kunming Changshui International Airport (IATA: KMGICAO: ZPPP) is the primary airport serving Kunming, the capital of Yunnan Province, China. The airport is located 24.5 km (15.2 mi) northeast of the city center in a graded mountainous area about 2,100 m (6,900 ft) above sea level. The airport opened at 08:00 (UTC+8) on June 28, 2012,[1] replacing the old Kunming Wujiaba International Airport, which will be demolished. As a gateway to Southeast and South Asia,[2] Changshui Airport is a hub for China Eastern Airlines, Kunming Airlines and Lucky Air.

The new airport has two runways (versus the single runway at Wujiaba), and is expected to handle 38 million passengers per year by 2020.

The main terminal was designed by architectural firm SOM with engineering firm Arup.

Terminal[edit]

The main 548,300 m2 (5,902,000 sq ft) terminal of Changshui Airport is the second largest terminal building in China.[3] The terminal has 66 gates with jet bridges.

Construction[edit]

Construction began in 2009 and at the time was reported to be named the Zheng He International Airport. The very short construction time was marred by two separate incidents. The first incident occurred on January 3, 2010, when 7 construction workers died as an incomplete overpass collapsed.[4] In another incident on June 28, 2011, 11 workers were injured when a tunnel that was under construction collapsed.[5] Construction of the airport's main terminal was completed by July 2011.[6]

Transportation[edit]

The airport is the terminus of Line 6 of the Kunming Metro, which opened on the same day as the airport. It is also connected to Kunming by a 13 km toll highway, as well as Provincial Road S101.
