A busy, two-terminal facility, Kunming Wujiaba International Airport (KMG) is handling some six million passengers per year. Kunming's airport flights travel to and from a variety of Chinese cities as well as to and from some international destinations such as Thailand and Vietnam.
The airport is located about 6 km / 4 miles south-east of the city centre, close to Guandu and within the Chinese province of Kunming. Annual passenger figures have now topped 14 million and Kunming Wujiaba Airport currently ranks as China's number seven civilian airports. However, due to growth constraints, the airport is expected to relocate during the next decade.
