China's first large-scale manned airship was rolled out in Xi'an, capital of Southwest China's Shaanxi province, on June 7, along with a press conference for China's 2018 Large-Scale Manned Airship Low-Altitude Tourism Conference.

Both events were hosted by Shaanxi Geotime General Aviation Co and organized by Xi'an Geotime General Aviation Media Co and Shaanxi Wanya Business Operation Co and were held at the Qujiang Conference Center.

Wang Chao, chairman of Shaanxi Geotime General Aviation Co, said the GTGA-K9000 airship belongs to the National Important (civil-military) Dual-Use Technology Development Project. With its advanced technology and innovative design, the airship fills a void in the large-scale airship industry in the country.

It will open a new era in manned ecology and fashion sightseeing air tours in China and will become an example for the development of the sightseeing airship tourism industry, he added.

During the ceremony, Xi'an Geotime General Aviation Media Co signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Shaanxi Wanya Business Operation Co to build the tourism conference into an ongoing brand-building exercise.

It is hoped that the activity will enhance the development of Xi'an's cultural tourism industry and contribute to cultural tourism industry around the world.
