Capital Investment Programmes - 2014

Under its Twelfth Five-Year Plan covering the period 2011-2015 China is continuing with its programme to construct 70 new airports and expand or upgrade of a further 101 existing facilities to bring the number of commercial airports in the country to 230.
 
The General Administration of Civil Aviation of China (CAAC) says investments of USD73 billion under the plan are intended to create the infrastructure needed to handle a predicted average annual growth in passenger numbers of 11.4% up to 2020 and a year-on-year increase in air cargo tonnage of 14%. This is by far the largest and most ambitious airport investment programme anywhere in the world.

Covering capital investment programmes at more than 90 international and leading domestic airports throughout China, it outlines the current ownership status of each airport and provides details of major investment and development programmes, including available project cost data and timescales.
