Guilin Liangjiang International Airport terminal set for expansion


The plan to expand the terminal building of Guilin Liangjiang International Airport is underway. China International Engineering Consulting Corporation (CIECC) recently sent an evaluation report to the National Development and Reform Commission. CIECC’s materials will be used as a basis in making the feasibility report for the planned expansion project. Liangjiang International Airport was established and began service in October 1996. Since then, it has maintained a steady increase in aviation traffic. It registered a passenger volume of 4.66 million in 2007, nearly reaching the terminal’s passenger capacity of five million person times per year. This year, the passenger traffic is expected to exceed the five million passenger mark. It is also projected that the airport’s passenger volume will reach 9.8 million by the year 2020. The main expansion and retrofit project of the terminal area of Liangjiang will include a new terminal building with an area of 52,400 sq. m. and 19 new apron parking stands. It will also include the construction of related support facilities such as power and water supply, heating, fueling, drainage and sewerage treatment. The new airport will be able to handle an estimated 9.8 million passengers, 76,600 tons of cargo and mail, and 90,000 aircraft movements per year once completed. The total investment for the project is expected to reach RMB 858 million, with the project targeting 2020 as the completion year. Accordingly, the aviation traffic of Liangjiang International Airport is expected to get heavier this year, and the capacity of its existing infrastructures are not sufficient to meet the rising demand. Currently, the passengers for both domestic departures and international arrivals in Liangjiang have cross programs. The custom and frontier inspection areas intended for international passengers are relatively smaller, while hardware facilities are insufficient. These inadequacies greatly affect Liangjiang International Airport’s quality of service.
