Luzhou Lantian Airport
Simplified Chinese泸州蓝田机场

Luzhou Lantian Airport (IATA: LZO, ICAO: ZULZ) was a dual-use military and public airport in the city of Luzhou in Sichuan, China. It was built in 1945 and initially served an air route between China and India by the US Air Force during World War II. Services were suspended in the 1960s, but later it was used for training purposes by the People's Liberation Army Air Force. Major renovations and expansions were completed in January 2001.[2]

Due to the limitation of the airport, the new Luzhou Yunlong Airport was constructed in the town of Yunlong in Lu County.[3] It was opened on 10 September 2018, and all flights were transferred to the new airport.[4]
