Chamdo Bangda Airport

Chamdo Bangda Airport, also known as Bamda Airport, is located in Bangda, Qamdo (also Chamdo) prefecture of eastern Tibet. With an altitude of 4,300 meters, it is the highest airport in the world and can handle jumbo jets. The airport is 2.5 hours by mountain road from the county seat of Qamdo, Chamdo Town which is 128 km away from the airport. The long commute is the result of no flat land closer to the city being available to construct an airport.

Its runway is the longest publicly used runway in the world, at 5,500 m, because the low air density at this altitude makes a higher takeoff and landing true airspeed necessary.

Chamdo Bangda Airport handles flights to and from Chengdu and Lhasa. All the flights are before noon. The flight returning to Chengdu departs one hour after the plane from Chengdu landing at Chamdo airport.
Before landing, you will be warned to move slowly on leaving the plane for you may feel light headed or dizzy because of the thin air.
