As the first high-altitude airport in Xinjiang, Taxkorgan Red Qilav Airport will greatly shorten the time from Urumqi to Taxkorgan Tajik Autonomous County.

Routes from Taxkorgan to Kashgar, Shaq, Urumqi, Yining, and Aksu will be planned. The long-term plan will increase the routes from Taxkorgan to Xian, Beijing and Shenzhen, which will play an important role in the economic prosperity of Taxkorgan Tajik Autonomous County and the completion of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.
