Kunming Introduction 

As one of China s most diversified provinces, Yunnan is certainly one of China’s most alluring destinations.  Yunnan is home to more than one third of China’s ethnic minorities and over half of the country’s plant and animal species.  The province is blessed by its mixture of traditional folk cultures as well as breath-taking scenery.  Kunming, Yunnan’s capital, resides at an elevation of 1890m and boasts a milder climate than most other Chinese cities.  Celebrated as the "Spring City," Kunming has neither severe winters nor extremely hot summers and can be visited at any time of the year.

Kunming Changshui International Airport is the primary airport serving Kunming, the capital of Yunnan Province, China. The airport is located 15.2 mi northeast of the city center in a graded mountainous area about 6,900 ft above sea level. The airport opened at 08:00 (UTC+8) on June 28, 2012, replacing the old Kunming Wujiaba International Airport. As a gateway to Southeast and South Asia.

The new airport has two runways (versus the single runway at Wujiaba), and handled 41,980,339 passengers in 2016, making it one of the 50 busiest airports in the world by passenger traffic, the first time it earned this distinction.
