According to Air China's southwest branch, starting Sept. 6, the company will operate flights every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday with an Airbus A319 aircraft. 

On August 8, 2017, a 7.0-magnitude quake forced the closure of the Jiuzhaigou National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site famous for its spectacular waterfalls, lush forests and serene plateau lakes. The Jiuzhai Huanglong Airport also halted the service. 

On Aug. 8, Sichuan Airlines resumed operating the flight between Chengdu and Jiuzhaigou.

As an important transport hub linking tourist sites to the outside world, the airport plans to resume flight services to cities including Chongqing, Xi'an, Beijing and Shanghai within the year.
