The Nanning Wuxu International Airport is an aviation hub serving the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region located in Wuxu Town in South Central China, about 30 kilometres outside of the capital city of Nanning. This complex covers nearly 260 hectares of land and presides as a joint civilian and military establishment, currently handling more than six million passengers on an annual basis and growing in traffic each year.
The airport contains six major jet bridges and serves for more than 20 passenger airlines and three dominant cargo lines. The aesthetic design makes for an attractive arrival/departure hall boasting an architecturally appealing ovoid dome. The terminal is equipped with passenger lounges that offer Wi-Fi, a business centre and multiple dining options.
Nanning Wuxu International Airport contains plentiful parking on site and taxis available for hire. Multiple bus lines route from the airport to the city centre of Nanning. One line connects the Chaoyang Road Airline Ticket Office near Nanning Railway Station and another to Wuxiang Square.
The primarily passenger-served aviation hub of today began as a military hotspot used by the United States Army Air Forces Fourteenth Air Force. Reconnaissance units operated out of this location during the China Defensive Campaign in the 1940s.
