I have heard (from locals in Kunming) that a Maglev ferry, like the one in Shanghai, will be built to link the airport to the city. Can anyone confirm this rumour?

Ferry is over the sea, there is a high speed express from Kunming city center to the airport.

Or I don't know if the city will start a Ferry on Lake Dian.

The metro line to downtown is already finished, and as you can see in previous photos it's a conventional light rail system, not a maglev.

It's rare to see a foreign operated Chinese civilian airliner at a Chinese airport.

opening

I talked to a friend who is working at the new airport. He told me that despite repeated requests to the airport management about the opening date there has been no response. His best guess is that the control tower isn't up to speed. Apparently his company has rented retail space there so the sooner the airport opens the better it is for them.

It looks like it will be a very nice airport. It also must be cool to know you're the first one to land at a major airport.
