Luzhou Lantian Airport (Chinese: 泸州蓝田机场) (IATA: LZOICAO: ZULZ) is an airport serving the city of Luzhou in Sichuan Province, China.

Luzhou Airport was built in 1945 and initially served an air route between China and India by the US Air Force during the World War II. Services were suspended in the 1960s, but later it was used for training purposes by the Chinese Air Force. Major renovations and expansions were completed in January 2001.[2]
