update:July 05,2021
LHASA, July 5,2021 -- The third terminal of the Lhasa Gonggar Airport in Gonggar County, southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region, was completed on Wednesday.
It is estimated that the airport will see an annual throughput of 9 million passenger trips by 2025.
Lhasa Gonggar Airport is the largest airport in the region. The new terminal is expected to bring great significance to local socio-ecological development.
Transportation has long been a bottleneck inhibiting Tibet's development, as the region is situated on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau with complex geographical conditions for the construction of roads.
Since late 2012, China has been increasing its infrastructure investment in Tibet. Tibet has launched a total of 130 air routes, with 61 cities connected by flights. The number of passenger trips made through these airports totaled 5.18 million in 2020.
