Over 20 Years of Growth and Innovation

inter airport China launched in Beijing in 2004 and convenes every two years. By 2024, we will be celebrating our 20th anniversary, marking two decades of substantial growth and a lasting presence in China's civil aviation industry. This event has solidified its status as a major international gathering, with additional events in Guangzhou, expanding its influence across China.


The three-day expo is scheduled to return from 4-6 September, 2024, at Beijing CIEC (Chaoyang Venue). It aims to host over 5,000 attendees and provide a platform for more than 100 exhibitors and brands to present the latest advancements in airport technology and infrastructure on the exhibition floor. Additionally, the event will feature a concurrent conference program and a range of interactive activities.


inter airport China stands as the China’s principal platform where professionals from the industry, academia, and government come together to exchange ideas and foster collaborations within the global airport development community. Participants will have the opportunity to learn from industry leaders, enhance their operational and technological knowledge, and network with peers through various engaging social events.

Why China?

The Civil Aviation Administration of China is committed to expanding its open-door policy with ambitious plans to increase the number of airports across the country. By 2025, the goal is to construct 136 additional airports, bringing the total to 370. The new airports will be distributed throughout the country: 16 in North China, 23 in Northeast China, 16 in East China, 24 in South Central China, 29 in Southwest China, and 28 in Northwest China. This expansion underscores China's dedication to enhancing its aviation infrastructure.


Looking Ahead to 2035 and Beyond

According to the Action Plan for Building China into a Leading Country in Civil Aviation in the New Era, by 2035, China aims to add more airports, raising the total to 450. This strategic expansion will facilitate China's transformation from a leader in air freight to a frontrunner in various aspects of civil aviation. Furthermore, forecasts by ACI World Airport Traffic predict that by 2031, China will surpass the United States to become the largest passenger market in the world. Continuing its ascent, by 2040, China is projected to handle just over 3.6 billion passengers, accounting for an 18.3% share of the global passenger traffic market, underscoring its enduring dominance in the international aviation sector.
