nanjing lukou airport

The Nanjing Lukou International Airport is the main airport that serves Nanjing, the capital of Jiangsu province in China. In 2010, the airport handled 12,530,515 million passengers, making it the 13th busiest airport in China in terms of passenger traffic. It has achieved a major feat over the years since its operations began back in 1997, after two years of construction.

The airport currently has a 3600-meter-long runway and can handle several flights. Thus, the airport is considered as a backup for Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport and Shanghai Pudong International Airport.
