Brief Introduction: Foshan has its own airport which is for both military and civilian use, and has been operating since 1985. However, it stopped civilian flights in 2002. In order to reduce the pressure on the Guangzhou New Baiyun Airport, the government reopened Foshan Airport as an important lateral airport on 18 November 2009. It is now solely served by China United Airlines, with daily flights to Wuxi and Beijing Nanyuan Airport.
