so what specifically does that mean?

would a person be able to travel to Chongqing and receive a visa for a 72-hour visit in the city OR does this just grant a person transit through Chongqing with a layover up to 72 hours *but need to stay in the airport.?

It definitely would be nice to fly to Chongqing for a day or two without a prior visa, I hope this is the case.

Luckily, the foreigners can take activities in the administrative region of Chongqing, which means they can go outside the airport and travel in the entire Chongqing with the jurisdiction area of 82,403 km^2 (2.39 times of the total area of Beijing, Tianjin, and Shanghai)

The jurisdiction areas of the other 4 cities implementing 72-hour visa-free policy are:
Beijing: 16,410.5 km^2
Shanghai: 6,340.5 km^2
Guangzhou: 7,434 km^2
Chengdu: 12,390 km^2
Total: 42,575 km^2 = The area of Chongqing / 1.94

They share the same designer, eh? Jiangbei and Incheon are both designed by France-based Aeroports de Paris.

@juukeihc:

Can the airport also accommodate B777, A330/340/350 and the future C919/929/939?

Sure, A380-800, B747-400, ... , and each tag is just meaning the largest aircraft that can stop in the spot

I think CKG already gets 747-400 (cargo) and 777's (China Southern). I am certain CKG gets A330/A340 since Sichuan Airline flies those (CKG is a hub) as does Air China from PEK. I think FinAir, Qatar, and the other long range internationals fly in A330 and 777 as well.

As was said, the new renderings show A380 spaces. A350 is in the same class as 777 so Im sure it will be fine. Isn't C919 in the class as A320, which like 737 is the dominant domestic airliner?

Good news but this policy should apply to all Chinese cities and visa-free duration should be 3 month.

And as a bonus, notice the reintroduction of CTU-CKG route with the beginning segment. HUGE, and direly needed IMO as not everyone wants or can take the bullet trains between the two cities.

Also nice to see CKG take on the International Gateway role with this flight.

You've been able to do that for decades unless you meant fly directly to your ancestral home?

Zorg, did you really meant that to juukeihc? Are that trolling? If so, it seems to be positive and informative about CKG.

Just checking.
