CAN Baiyun Airport Information
Where is Baiyun Airport?
Founded in 214 BC, Guangzhou is a mix of old and new. China's 3rd largest city, after Beijing and Shanghai, boasts some the country's oldest temples, a 1000 year old park, an imperial tomb and preserved colonial villas. Modern Guangzhou boasts distinctive architecture in Zhujiang New Town, including: Guangzhou Opera House, Guangzhou New Library, the new Guangdong Museum, to name a few.
Guangzhou's isolation from 'typical China' by early exposure to the outside world and a mountainous typography has resulted in a refreshingly unique lifestyle, liberal ideas and distinctive cuisine. Yet, despite its rich history and vibrant sightseeing, most travelers come to Guangzhou to shop. And the shopping is great.
Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport (IATA: CAN, ICAO: ZGGG), also called Baiyun Airport, or Guangzhou Airport, is situated in Huadu District, north of Guangzhou city centre, in Guangdong province, China. It is also referred to as New Baiyun Airport to distinguish it from its identically named former location, from which it moved in 2004 (the old airport codes were retained).
Airlines serving Guangzhou Airport include: Asiana, Beijing Capital, China Southern (main hub), China Eastern, Hainan (focus city), KLM, Korean, Madagasgar, Malaysian, Schenzhen (focus city), Shantong, Sichuan, Singapore, Thai, Vietnam, Virgin Australia and Xiamen. Countries served can largely be inferred from the airline list.
In 2011, Guangzhou Airport served 45,040,340 passengers, making it China's 2nd busiest airport, and the world's 19th busiest.
Guangzhou Airport has begun work on an expansion that will more than double its designed capacity. The project will add a third runway, a 595,000-square-metre Terminal 2, a metro station and a transportation centre. When the project is finished in 2016, the airport will be able to handle 80 million passengers.
