Guangzhou's New Baiyun Airport Opening Soon?

Wed Nov 05, 2003 1:38 am

Read an article earlier this year in Aviation Week about the new airport for Guangzhou (CAN) and that it would open later this year or possibly next year. Was hoping someone had more info as to when it is now projected to be open ?

Thanks !

Hi Lars.

As per the title of this post, do they plan on closing Baiyun and giving the new airport that name? I've never heard anything of that sort....

Hi !

Yes, from what I remember, they will close the current Baiyun airport when the new Baiyun airport opens.

I got an email today from Li Jing who takes pictures at CAN and he told me that the new airport will open June 28 2004.
