Kunming Changshui International Airport (IATA: KMG, ICAO: ZPPP) is the primary airport serving Kunming, the capital of Yunnan Province, China. The airport is located 24.5 km (15.2 mi) northeast of the city center in a graded mountainous area about 2,100 m (6,900 ft) above sea level. The airport opened at 08:00 (UTC+8) on June 28, 2012,[1] replacing the old Kunming Wujiaba International Airport, which was demolished. As a gateway to Southeast and South Asia,[2] Changshui Airport is a hub for China Eastern Airlines, Kunming Airlines, Lucky Air, Sichuan Airlines and Ruili Airlines.

The new airport has two runways (versus the single runway at Wujiaba), and handled 48,075,978 passengers in 2019, making it one of the 50 busiest airports in the world by passenger traffic, the first time it earned this distinction. In 2020, it is expected to handle 50 million passengers.

Kunming Changshui International Airport and Ürümqi Diwopu International Airport are the two national gateway hub airports of China.

The main terminal was designed by architectural firm SOM with engineering firm Arup.

History

Construction began in 2009. At the time, the facility was reported to be named the Zheng He International Airport. The very short construction time was marred by two separate incidents. The first occurred on January 3, 2010, when seven construction workers died as an incomplete overpass collapsed.[3] On June 28, 2011, 11 workers were injured when a tunnel that was under construction collapsed.[4] Construction of the airport's main terminal was completed by July 2011.[5]

Facilities

Terminal

Runways

Kunming Changshui International Airport now has two runways. East runway is 4500 meters long while west runway is 4000 meters long.

Kunming airport became the first aviation hub in China to implement such an information system. In 2017, the airport's on-time performance reached 85.3%.[7]
