Airport building spree

XINJIANG plans to spend 14.4 billion yuan (US$2.1 billion) on the construction or expansion of 17 airports this year to enhance the region’s role as a transport terminal linking China with Central Asia.

Fourteen are transport airports located in Urumqi, Kashgar, Aksu, Yining, Korla and Altay, as well as some counties including Zhaosu, Yutian and Shache. The other three are general airports. Shache Airport will be the first to be completed this year. It will be the 19th transport airport in Xinjiang. Urumqi International Airport will add two runways and a new terminal building covering 450,000 square meters, with its annual passenger and cargo throughput rising to 48 million people and 550,000 tons respectively.
