In the remark it's stated that the airport will be closed around June 29th!!! One month after the picture was taken...

My question is when was this decieded, where is there a new airport...or are they going to use HKG as a main feeder for the area (though it takes like 6 hrs in car due to the terrain)?

The new Baiyun airport will open on the same date, and the equipment will be moved over to the new airport overnight.

Well, I've also heard that it won't actually close on 28th Jun although there will be an opening ceremony that day. The move of the operation takes place in July.

The new airport is North-east of Guangzhou in a suburb/district called Hua Du and about 20 minutes by expressway from the current airport. There should also be trains going there as well...one day...
