Chengdu Tianfu International Aerotropolis
Chengdu Tianfu International Aerotropolis is located in Jianyang, the southeast of Chengdu, with a total area of 483 km2 consisting of Chengdu Tianfu International Airport, Airport Economic Area and part of Jianyang. In April 2017, Chengdu Hi-tech Zone has officially taken over CDTA, aiming at building it into a “One Belt One Road” International Cooperation Model, Global Citizen Innovation & Entrepreneurship Community and National Strategic Emerging Industry Cluster.


Chengdu Tianfu International Airport is positioned as the largest airline hub along “One Belt One Road” with 6 runways and 4 terminals. The airport will be completed in 2019 and open to traffic in 2020. It is predicted to have passenger throughput amounted to 90 million and cargo throughput of 2,000,000 tons.Centered on the airport,we will establish the multimodal transport system of “air, rail, and road”,to create a modern and international gateway city,connecting with other major cities in the world.

Chengdu Tianfu International Aerotropolis has three major industries including aviation hinge economy,urban service economy, and innovative new economy. The aviation hinge economy includes international trade, hinge economy,MRO, exhibition service,etc.The urban service economy includes headquarter economy,culture and tourism,cross-border healthcare, international education, sports events, smart commerce, etc.For innovative new economy sector, it will develop cloud computing, IOT, big data, AI, etc.We are promoting the major projects of modern logistics industrial park,tianfu olympic sports city, jiangxi south CBD,tianfu campus of civil aviation flight university of China and technology innovation demonstration zone of China Civil Aviation.

Respecting the harmony between the city and nature ,
we will preserve and utilize the mountain and water resources to build a garden city.Adhering to the concept of smart city,we will build ubiquitously sensory and seamlessly accessible infrastructure wiht high-standard civic centers,
cultural centers, exhibition centers,consumer centers, and international hospitals for our residents.
