Guangzhou airport

The international airport of the capital of Guangdong province of China is called Baiyun. The airport is located about 30 km from the city. It is the second busiest in China, after the airport in Beijing. In addition, Baiyun Airport is the headquarters of China Southern Airlines.


The current Baiyun Airport was opened in 2004, it replaced the airport of the same name, which existed for 72 years. At the moment, the old airport is closed. It was decided to start the construction of a new airport due to the impossibility of expanding the first airport, which was located 12 km from the city..
The opening of the new airport allowed flights to operate around the clock, thus the main airline was able to better plan all intercontinental flights.
Name «Baiyun» was borrowed from the mountain of the same name, which is located next to the old airport. Baiyun, translated from Chinese, means white clouds.
