Shuangliu County (simplified Chinese: 双流县; traditional Chinese: 雙流縣; pinyin: Shuāngliú Xiàn; literally: "double flow") is under the administration of Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan province, China. Located approximately 19 kilometers away from downtown Chengdu, the county covers 1068 square kilometers and has a population of approximately 920,000. It is the home of Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport, the fifth busiest airport in the People's Republic of China. Shuangliu County is rapidly being urbanized by the growth of Chengdu and the airport's recent expansion. The county is bordered by the prefecture-level cities of Ziyang to the southeast and Meishan to the south.

When China Southwest Airlines existed, its headquarters were on the property of Shuangliu Airport.[3]
