The Xinjiang Fuyun Airport Rebuilding Project Gets Approval from the NDRC

As one of the eight key projects of the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, the rebuilding of Xinjiang Fuyun Airport received approval from the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC for short). The old Xinjiang Fuyun Airport was built back in 1965, in the Tu’er’hong Basin, in Fuyun county. It is 38 km from the Fuyun county and can only used by small aircraft, with a single flight route between Urumqi – Fuyun. In 1994, due to the cessation of the No. 3 mine ore of the Keketuohai’s Rare Mineral and the workers’ moving outside, Fuyun Airport was shut down. In recent years, the development and utilization of mineral resources from Fuyun County and the rise in popularity of tourism thanks to the promotion of Keketuohai National Geological Park, has rapidly increased the passenger volume. Due to the increase in interest to the region, the rebuilding of Fuyun Airport and acceleration of the opening of the flight route between Urumqi and Fuyun has been a practical need. The new location of Fuyun Civil Airport is in Kepukuola Agen, 3.5 km southwest of the 226 provincial highway and the 216 highway and is 21 km from the center of Fuyun county. The airport will be a civil regional airport, with the flight area categorized as 4C and the total investment is estimated to cost 409.92 million Yuan.
