CAAC to implement Caojiabao Airport expansion


The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) sent a document to the National Development and Reform Commission detailing its opinion on the preparatory feasibility report for the second phase of the construction project of the Caojiabao Airport in Xining, Qinghai. The CAAC agreed to implement the project. Caojiabao Airport began operation in 1991. In 2005, the airport was expanded. It is a 4D-grade airport with a runway 3,000 meters long and 10,727 sq. m. of terminal building area. By the end of 2007, the airport’s passenger volume reached 920,000, an increase of 24 percent, and cargo and mail volume rose by 10 percent to 5,214 tons. Aircraft movements totaled 8,595, up by 13 percent. The second stage of the expansion project was listed in the CAAC’s 11th Five-Year Plan. The expansion project will increase the airport’s passenger volume to four million and cargo and mail volume to 30,000 tons by 2020. A total of RMB 2.108 billion will be spent on the project. The CAAC will arrange a civil aviation special fund to cover 50 percent of the necessary funding.
