The construction plan of Hainan Boao Airport gets go-ahead from CAAC


The construction of Hainan Boao Airport, which serves mainly the annual Boao Forum for Asia, got approved by CAAC. Boao Airport is located at Zhongyuan Town of Qionghai City, 15 km from the permanent convention venue of BFA - Boao International Convention Centre. Other than mainly serves as the airport for the VIPs planes at home and abroad when attending the annual conference, it also functions as an alternate for Meilan Airport, where the two airports are distanced by one hour drive. Besides, Boao Airport can also serve as a civilian airport where tourist flights will be opened to many major cities nationwide. Hainan being a major province for tourism, its civil air transportation volume takes up above one half of the combined public transportation. Currently, Hainan has Meilan International Airport and Sanya Phoenix Internation Airport, but each individual throughput has approached or even exceeded the original design standard making expansion or construction of new airport an extremely urgent matter. CAAC approved the construction site last April. It is designed to build 15 aprons for private planes and corporate light jets. The total estimated investment would be RMB 800 millions with about RMB 300 millions by national subsidy. The construction starts this year and be completed next year for operation. BFA has hosted successfully 8 annual meetings since the first establishment in 2001.
