Nagqu Dagring Airport

Nagqu Dagring Airport (Chinese: 那曲达仁机场; pinyin: Nǎqū Dárén Jīchǎng) is a planned airport that will serve Nagqu in the Nagqu Prefecture of Tibet.[1] If built it will be the highest airport in the world at 4,436 m (14,554 ft), surpassing Daocheng Yading Airport as the highest.[2] The airport is part of a Chinese government development scheme to build 97 airports across China by 2020. By then, the authorities intend that four-fifths of China's population will be within a 90-minute drive of an airport.[1]
