Former Guangzhou Airport gone for 15 years

Tue Aug 06, 2019 12:03 am

The former Guangzhou Airport was open since 1932 and was shut down on Aug. 5th, 2004. Today marks the 15th years since it was shut down. Where it used to stand now stands a shopping mall, and 20km north, the new one is growing. Let's wish the new airport the brightest future!

So long? I flew from Hong Kong to Guangzhou a few times in the 90s. Once was a night diversion caused by some fierce typhoon winds, but the others were scheduled flights. IIRC the airport was expanded during those years.

Residential areas, a big park, hotels, malls... all the normal stuff you find in a big city. You can still see where the airport was on Google Maps, as he roads still outline the former airport area: https://www.google.com/maps/@23.1831685 ... 052,14.79z Jst don't get confused when switching to satellite images, in China Google Maps is not congruent with the reality due to Chinese cartography laws.
