 Kunming Attractions

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 degraded mountain area about 2,100 m (6,900 ft) above sea level. Opened at 08:00 (UTC+8) on June 28, 2012, it replaced the old Kunming Wujiaba International Airport, which will be demolished. As a gateway to Southeast and South Asia, Changshui Airport is a hub for China Eastern Airlines, Kunming Airlines and Lucky Air.

The new airport has two runways (versus the single runway at Wujiaba), and is expected to handle 38 million passengers per year by 2020.

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