Guizhou Shuanglong Airport Economic Zone recently became a national level Airport Economic Demonstration Zone upon approval from China’s central government.
Located in Guiyang, capital of Guizhou province, the economic zone covers some 148 square kilometers with the Guiyang Longdongbu International Airport at its center.
The fine ecological environment of the region contributed to the zone becoming a demonstration zone. Its forest coverage rate is 47 percent as of the end of 2016. Convenient transportation between railways, highways and the airport is another of the zone’s advantages.
The Guiyang Longdongbu International Airport delivered more than 15 million passengers in 2016, a year-on-year increase of 13.3 percent.
