Capital Investment Programmes - 2013

China’s Twelfth Five-Year Plan covering the period 2011-2015 foresees the construction of 70 new airports and the expansion or upgrading of a further 101 existing facilities to bring the number of commercial airports in the country to 230.
 
These ambitious plans are part of a USD70 billion programme intended to create the infrastructure needed to handle a predicted average annual growth in passenger numbers of 11.4% up to 2020. An even higher year-on-year increase in air cargo tonnage of 14% is forecast over the same period.
