This is China’s 9th busiest airport and one of its fastest growing major airports. Between 2005 – 2013 passenger numbers grew from 6.6 million to over 25 million – on a par with Zürich airport for example.

Chongqing has two terminals. T1 serves international destinations and T2, opened in 2005, operates domestic flights out of halls A and B. 95% of flights are domestic and 22 of the 35 airlines that service the airport are Chinese. Beijing is the number one route and Shanghai the number one city (combining both Shanghai Pudong and Shanghai Hongqiao airports).

The number of international flights has increased in the past two years and now includes SilkAir, Thai AirAsia, Thai Airways, Finnair to Helsinki and Qatar Airways to Doha.

With the opening of a new terminal T3A in late 2015, the airport capacity will increase to 45 million passengers a year.
