Nanning Wuxu Airport (IATA: NNG, ICAO: ZGNN) is an airport serving Nanning, the capital of Guangxi Autonomous Region, China. It is located 32 km (20 mi) south-west of the centre of the city. The airport was built in 1962, with improvements made in 1990.[1] Terminal 2, with an area measuring 189,000 m2 (2,030,000 sq ft), opened in 25 September 2014. It is designed to handle 16 million passengers annually. The number of passengers reached 1 million in 2002, and jumped to 2 million by 2006. In 2016, 11.56 million passengers used the airport.

History during World War II[edit]

During World War II, the airport was known as Nanning Airfield and was used by the United States Army Air Forces Fourteenth Air Force as part of the China Defensive Campaign (1942–1945). It was used primarily by reconnaissance units, which operated unarmed P-38 Lightning photo-recon aircraft that flew over Japanese-held territory and obtained intelligence used by combat units. Detachments of fighter and bomber squadrons also operated occasionally from the airfield, along with being a supply point for the 2d Combat Cargo Squadron, which air-dropped supplies and munitions to ground forces on the front lines. At the end of the war, the transports also hauled men, horses and mules to the airfield. The Americans closed their facilities at the end of October 1945.[2][3]
