Most of the previous researchers estimated the influencing factors of the high-speed railway (HSR) on tourism without considering the influential factors on different air quality levels. With high-speed railway construction as a quasi-experiment, this paper contributes to evaluating how air quality affects the passenger-oriented transportation infrastructure’s impacts on tourism. As one of the most economically developed regions in China, Hu-Ning-Hang region has become an excellent example to compare this effect. Based on a triple difference (DDD) approach, the results indicate that tourism increase significantly in cities with good air quality and decrease in cities with bad air quality. The results also suggest that industrial development also improved, but the gap between cities with different air quality is not apparent. Therefore, this research support that under the influence of air quality, the opening of HSR will have different impacts on tourism, but the impact on industrial development is similar.
