Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, China

Why Guangzhou?

A metropolitan city steeped in history, Guangzhou is one of the world’s oldest and busiest trade hubs, delighting visitors with its culturally diverse history and cosmopolitan charm.

Contributing one eighth of China’s aggregate economic value, the province of Guangdong continues to grow in its economic scale and financial capability, whilst retaining its rustic charm.

Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport is the third-largest airport in China and one of the world’s fastest-growing hubs. Major investment plans, including the completion of five runways and three terminals, are set to break Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport into the world’s top 10 largest airports early next decade.

By 2025, Guangzhou aims to achieve 620,000 flights, three million tonnes of cargo and 100 million passengers per year, confirming its place as a world-class hub for connectivity.

“Hosting World Routes 2018 will help Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport exhibit its new infrastructure, design and development to the global route development community. Guangdong Airport Authority looks forward to welcoming delegates to the city of Guangzhou and showcasing its economic strength and influence.”

Mr Zhang Kejian,
Chairman of the Board,
Guangdong Airport Authority
