Xinhua reported that an airport expansion project has started in Xi'an to boost the development of the capital of northwest China's Shaanxi Province as an international air hub. China West Airport Group said that the new expansion project of Xi'an Xianyang International Airport will make it the largest airport construction project in northwest China in terms of the building volume and investment scale. The project is designed to expand both the airport's passenger and cargo capacity. It will enable the airport to handle 83 million passenger trips and 1 million tonnes of air cargo per year by 2030. The expansion project has been approved by related government authorities with an investment of 47.6 billion yuan. It includes expansion projects targeting the terminal, air traffic control and fuel supply.

The project, which has been approved by authorities in Shaanxi Province, will add two terminals, three runways, a 350,000 square meters ground transportation centre and an integrated Metro Station. It will also increase cargo capacity to 1 million tonnes. The scheme will add 60,000 square meters of commercial space in a new-build fifth terminal, expected to be completed in 2024.

The present facility was completed in 1991 and covers 5 square kilometrs, making it the second largest airport in northern China. Its passenger throughput in 2018 was 44.7 million passengers, ranking it seventh in the country. About 92% of travellers were from other cities in China. The last expansion project added a third terminal and a second runway, both of which began operation in 2012. The scheme was partly designed by UK consultancy Design Solution.
