Expansion of Aksu Airport approved by NDRC


The National Development and Reform Commission of China recently approved the retrofit and expansion project of Aksu Airport in China’s Autonomous Region of Xinjiang. The Aksu Airport expansion and retrofit is a significant airport construction project listed in the national 11th Five-Year Plan and a key infrastructure project of the Xinjiang Autonomous Region. The goal is to prepare the major part of the project for a formal inauguration this year. As a major part of the project, a 2,800-meter-long-by 45-meter-wide runway expansion will be implemented. The current runway will be extended 400 meters to the west of the airport. The airport’s major project will also include construction of a new apron with a class B and three class C aircraft parking stands, a new terminal building totaling 5,000 sq. m. and other airport support facilities. The Civil Aviation Administration of China has confirmed a special fund of RMB 95 million for the development of Aksu Airport as a western regional airport. The total project investment is estimated to reach RMB 210 million. The Aksu Airport retrofit and expansion project is significantly supported by the state council. The project is an important component to improve the air transport network in China’s western region.
