The Belt and Road Lane officially opened to incoming and outgoing passengers at 10 o’clock, on April 28 in Kunming Changrui International Airport (Kunming Airport for short). It is expected that the lane will provide more conveniences for people from Belt and Road countries who enter and leave China via Kunming Airport.

 As a gateway airport of China to connect South and Southeast Asia, Kunming Airport has been playing important roles in promoting the “Belt and Road” Construction. By the end of 2018, it operated air routes to 35 cities in five South Asian countries and ten Southeast Asian countries, making itself the airport in China with the most air routes to South and Southeast Asia.

 On April 28, the day right after the conclusion of the Second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation held in Beijing from April 25 to 27, Chinese National Immigration Administration opens the Belt and Road Lane in 12 airports and six land ports. The airports include those in Kunming, Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Xiamen, Shenzhen, Chengdu, Urumqi, Chongqing, Zhengzhou, Xi’an and Quanzhou. The lane is launched for the convenience of people from Belt and Road countries to go through customs and immigration inspection process when they leave and enter China via these airports and land ports.

Since the “Belt and Road” Initiative was proposed by China in 2013, more and more Chinese citizens have travelled abroad and the country also has received an increasing number of foreigners. In Kunming Airport, the number of incoming and outgoing passengers increases year by year, with the highest increasing rate of 28.02%. In 2018, the airport served four million incoming and outgoing passengers. Zuo Chao
