China will actively support domestic civil aircraft manufacturing in the future, according to a guideline plan posted Monday on the website of the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC), the nation's air travel regulator.

According to the plan, the nation will guide the localization of aircraft, engines and airborne equipment, and encourage research and development of domestic regional aircraft and general aviation aircraft.

The plan also calls for making the airports in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou into large-size international airport hubs, as well as nurturing the gateway airports in Kunming in Southwest China's Yunnan Province and Urumqi in Northwest China's Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region.
