China’s airport constructed at cost of $10.8 bn is officially open

China’s long-awaited Chengdu Tianfu International Airport constructed at a cost of about 70 billion Chinese yuan ($10.8 billion), has officially begun operations, offering travelers a new gateway to the home of giant pandas, reported CNN.
Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan province, is now the third city in the country to have two international airports, joining Shanghai and Beijing.
Constructed at a cost of about 70 billion Chinese yuan ($10.8 billion), phase one of the massive aviation hub has the capacity to handle up to 60 million passengers per year, further opening up the country’s southwest region.
Three runways and two terminals, covering a total area of 710,000 square meters, are in operation. State media outlet Xinhua reported the airport will eventually house terminals covering 1.4 million square meters, capable of handling 120 million passengers annually.
