A new business airport in Nansha New District
According to Nanfang Daily, Guangzhou has planed to establish a business airport in Nansha New District, and construct Baiyun International Airport into a servicing base for commercial flights in China, trying to focus on developing business air travels and make Guangzhou a main business center for commercial flights.
Commercial helicopter flights are also an important aspect for Guangzhou to prefect its airport hub construction, since commercial helicopter flights have become reality between Guangzhou and Shenzhen. Next Guangdong will build a special system for commercial helicopter flights between Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macau.
Shorten time from airport to city center
The latest documents released by Guangzhou government’s official website show that several construction projects are planning to make Baiyun International Airport a comprehensive transport hub, shortening time from airport to city center via highways and intercity lines.
Guangzhou plans to start the construction of the 2nd Airport Highway in 2015, and make sure it can put into use before the end of 2018. Once it starts to run, it takes less time from the airport to Guangzhou city center.
Meanwhile, it will be more convenient from Baiyun Airport to cities in Pearl River Delta region. Guangzhou - Dongguan intercity line (Baiyun Airport - Guangzhou North Railway) and Guangzhou - Foshan intercity line (Baiyun Airport - Guangzhou South Railway) will start to construct this year.
