It is the only airport free trade zone in Shaanxi with a large area. It has the multiple functional advantages of "Airport + Bonded business + Free Trade + Port", shouldering the responsibility of building a national aviation hub and developing an airport economy.

Since its establishment in April last year, Airport New City has accelerated trade and investment liberalization, business environment facilitation, and financial capital globalization. It strives to create a new inland highland of reform and opening-up, complete with supporting functions and preferential development policies.

Zhai Beiqin, deputy director of the FTZ said that the zone will vigorously support the Airport New City function area as a platform and window for multi-faceted cooperation between the FTZ and World FZO, promoting cooperation and exchange in the areas of investment, trade, science and technology, and culture.
