Written by Ruru Zhou Updated Jul. 5, 2021

Guilin Liangjiang International Airport is 30 km west of the city (about a 40-minute taxi ride). There are 50 air routes to eight foreign cities or regions as well as 30 domestic cities. 

 The departure hall in Terminal 1 has two floors and covers an area of more than 50,000 square meters. There are 8 boarding bridges and baggage conveyor belts. There are also commercial catering and other rental service facilities, like banks, in the hall. Regarded as an important transportation way, it logged over 5.8 million passengers in 2014, making it the 33rd busiest airport in China.

As tourism developed, Terminal 1 was overloaded with passengers. In 2015, the construction of Terminal 2 was officially started.

Liangjiang Airport Terminal 2

Guilin Liangjiang International Airport Terminal 2 was first built on 28th November 2015 and has been put into a test run since 30th September 2018, for 3.83 billion yuan. Terminal 2 has a floor area of 100,000 square meters and an outdoor area of 400,000 square meters. It contains 22 security lanes, which are 17 for domestic and 5 for International, and 25 boarding gates, with the designed capacity to handle 12 million passengers and 95,000 tons of cargo a year. It’s becoming a new landmark of Guilin and also provides better infrastructure for tourism.

Looking from above, Terminal 2 is like a “U” shape. The building curve is elegant, just like the magnificent mountain of Guilin. There are three floors. The first floor is the arrival hall, where you can get your luggage and take a taxi. The second floor is a restroom for dining, transferring, and connecting flights. The third floor is the departure hall, for checking in, security check, and boarding. Now Terminal 1 was closed temporarily for renovation.
