A civil airport in southwest China's Chongqing Municipality has met industry standards and is expected to begin operation in mid-August.

Nicknamed the "in the clouds" airport, the Chongqing Wushan Airport is located at an altitude of more than 1,770 meters above sea level, and sits about 15 km away from the center of Wushan County in Chongqing. It is the highest civil airport in Chongqing, and drew an investment of 1.64 billion yuan (232.8 million U.S. dollars).

The airport is equipped with a 3,500-sq-m terminal and a 2,600-meter runway. Construction began in 2015, and finished last month.
