Chengdu becomes the third city in mainland my country with dual international airports

Chengdu Tianfu International Airport puts new wings on the opening of western China



In the past, the road to Shu was difficult, and it was difficult to go to the sky. Today, there are two flying wings, and the moat becomes a thoroughfare!


At 11 o'clock in the morning on June 27, a Sichuan Airlines 3U8001 aircraft rushed into the sky, symbolizing the official opening of Chengdu Tianfu International Airport, the largest civil transportation hub planned and constructed during the "13th Five-Year Plan" period. New wings.


   Millennium Aria, Flying Dream


  Sichuan used to be the epitome of the traffic difficulties in western China, and the difficulties of the Shu Road "Yellow Crane's flying is still not to pass, and the ape is desperate to climb and help." The golden leaf of the sun bird unearthed at the Jinsha site in Chengdu also embodies the dream of the ancient Shu ancestors to fly. This inspired the exterior design of Chengdu Tianfu International Airport, which, like a bird with wings spread out, set sail on the banks of Sancha Lake in Chengdu.


In this phase, Chengdu Tianfu International Airport will build a terminal with three runways and 710,000 square meters of "two verticals and one horizontal", which can meet the annual passenger throughput of 60 million passengers and the cargo and mail throughput of 1.3 million tons; the long-term plan will satisfy The annual passenger throughput is 120 million passengers and the cargo and mail throughput is 2.8 million tons.


   This is the epitome of the opening up of western China. Over the past 40 years of reform and opening up, the transportation construction in the west has been changing rapidly. In 2020, Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport has 310,000 aircraft taking off and landing, and civil aviation has transported 40.74 million passengers. The passenger throughput ranks second among airports in my country (excluding Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan).


   When the global epidemic is raging in 2020, Chengdu still maintains 10 regular international all-cargo airline routes such as Chicago, Frankfurt, Brussels, and Tokyo “non-stop”. The route network covers major hub cities in North America, Europe, Oceania, Africa, and Asia. In May 2020, Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport ranked first in the world in terms of takeoffs and landings, becoming the world's busiest airport that month.


   Facing the huge demand, Sichuan Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Co., Ltd. actively explores aircraft support technology. General Manager Shuai Zhiyong said: "Now we can do 8C inspections for aircraft similar to car maintenance within one month, and airlines no longer have to fly abroad. In the future, we will provide high-quality aviation maintenance guarantees for the'Belt and Road' countries. "


"Chengdu is an inland city with no borders and no sea, and aviation is the main way to directly participate in the global industrial division of labor. In recent years, Chengdu's total import and export trade by air transportation has accounted for more than 70% of the total." Chengdu East New District where Tianfu International Airport is located Yin Chaoyin, deputy director of the management committee, said, "The opening of the new airport will further promote Chengdu to become an international hub city."


   three-dimensional traffic open to the whole territory


   Not long ago, my country’s western airspace structure was adjusted, which connected the Shanghai-Chengdu Grand Corridor and formed a one-way parallel air corridor with a length of about 3,000 kilometers from east to west, connecting the airport clusters in Tibet, Chengdu and Chongqing, and the Yangtze River Delta region.


  Tang Jiqiang, chief researcher of the West Finance Think Tank of Southwestern University of Finance and Economics, believes that “the construction of a three-dimensional transportation system with air ports and railway ports as the main body is the key to accelerating the opening up and development of Sichuan and even the western region and serving the overall situation of the country.”


"Chengdu Tianfu International Airport is one of the highest-ranking airports on the Silk Road Economic Belt." said Zhan Jinsheng, project manager of the T1 terminal of Tianfu International Airport of China Construction Eighth Engineering Bureau. The 350 kilometers per hour high-speed rail can go through the airport without slowing down, and there is no vibration in the terminal building. There is no precedent in the world."


   As of now, Chengdu has 131 international (regional) passenger and freight routes, of which 81 are regular direct flights; a total of 8,000 China-Europe trains have been issued from Chengdu, covering 61 overseas cities. The opening of the new airport will more closely connect the China-Europe railway and the Yangtze River Waterway. The ever-increasing three-dimensional transportation network will make Chengdu a powerful connection point between the “Belt and Road” and the Yangtze River Economic Belt, further promoting the opening up of Sichuan.


   Based on Twin Cities, Service Double Cycle


  According to the statistics of the Civil Aviation Administration of China, in 2020, the Chengdu-Chongqing Airport Group will complete a passenger throughput of 83.83 million passengers, which will catch up to 91.481 million passengers in the nine Pearl River Delta cities in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area airport cluster. Currently, Chongqing is actively planning a new airport. In the future, the Chengdu-Chongqing area's two-city economic circle will cover 4 international airports within a one-hour traffic radius.


“The airport cluster develops with the urban cluster.” said Zou Jianjun, a professor at the Civil Aviation Management College of China. “The Chengdu-Chongqing Shuangcheng Economic Zone Airport cluster will to a large extent serve the huge western market. It requires a more open market environment. Vigorously develop the aviation-oriented economy, and accelerate the integration and development of air transportation, modern manufacturing and service industries."


   Focusing on the new opportunities brought about by the new airport, Chengdu Future Science and Technology City has accelerated the introduction of aerospace, electronic information, high-end manufacturing, scientific and technological services and other industries, signed and registered 12 projects, with a total investment of over 100 billion yuan.


  In the Eastern New District of Chengdu, the construction of the Civil Aviation Science and Technology Innovation Demonstration Zone, China's first civil aviation science and technology innovation project with an investment of over 10 billion, is in full swing.


"In the future, China's civil aviation basic scientific research, equipment manufacturing, application technology development and achievement transformation base will be formed here." Luo Yongjian, director of the Infrastructure Division of the Second Research Institute of the Civil Aviation Administration of China, told reporters, "Huawei, 360, Beihang and other top domestic enterprises and institutions Signed a cooperation agreement with us. In the future, we will send a research and development team to settle in, which is expected to directly promote the formation of a tens of billions of industry."


   The Tianfu campus of Civil Aviation Flight University of China, which can accommodate 25,000 full-time students, is also stepping up construction. "The gathering of Tianfu International Airport, the Tianfu Campus of the Civil Aviation Flight College, and the Civil Aviation Technology Innovation Demonstration Zone will strongly promote aviation manufacturing, maintenance, research and development, and personnel training." said Zhou Xiang, Director of the Development Planning Division of the Civil Aviation Flight Academy of China.


The “Comprehensive Transportation Development Plan of the Chengdu-Chongqing Region Twin-City Economic Circle” recently announced by the National Development and Reform Commission puts forward: “Focus on building an international integrated transportation hub cluster in the Chengdu-Chongqing Twin-City Economic Circle with Chengdu and Chongqing as the center, giving full play to global access and connectivity. An efficient and well-functioning transportation hub."


It is foreseeable that with the acceleration of the construction of world-class airport clusters, the Chengdu-Chongqing region's dual-city economic circle will take the "Belt and Road" construction as the lead, promote the realization of domestic access, international opening, and support the dual-cycle development pattern of services. The hinterland continues to move towards the forefront of China's opening up.
