Shuangliu District (simplified Chinese: 双流区; traditional Chinese: 雙流區; pinyin: Shuāngliú Qū; literally: 'double flow') is under the administration of Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan province. Located approximately 19 kilometers away from downtown Chengdu, the district covers 1032 square kilometers and has a population of approximately 920,000. It is the home of Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport, the fifth busiest airport in 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.
