Yinchuan Hedong Airport opens new terminal building


The Ningxia Yinchuan Hedong Airport’s new terminal building was put into operation on June 5 as a fitting celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region.
The new terminal building has a floor area of 32,800 square meters. The parallel taxiway is 3,200 meters long. There are 10 air bridges and the new and old aprons now occupy over 130,000 sq.m. With 2020 as the construction target year, passenger traffic could reach 2,700 per hour, translating to an annual volume of 3 million passengers, 110,000 tons of cargo and mail and 40,000 aircraft movements. The operation of the new terminal building and auxiliary facilities has opened a new page in Ningxia civil aviation history that can expedite the development of Ningxia’s economy. Yinchuan Hedong Airport has a strong safety record. Along with the development of West China and Ningxia’s economy from 1997 to 2008, Yinchuan Hedong Airport also increased its passenger volume and has a strong safety record in the last 12 years. Developed from a small airport, Yinchuan Hedong Airport’s passenger throughput increased from below 150,000 in 1997 to 1.37 million passengers in 2007, doubling every three years. This year, the passenger volume is expected to reach 1.7 million.
