Gannan Xiahe Airport Project Passes Acceptance Inspection



In mid-August, the Northwest Regional Administration of CAAC and the Gansu Provincial Development and Reform Commission jointly organized an acceptance inspection for the recently completed Gannan Xiahe Airport project.

The Gannan Xiahe Airport project was approved by the State Council and the Central Military Commission in April 2009 and was designed for regional operations. The project was subsequently completed in late July, and at this point has passed flight tests and examinations.

Each of the project’s 14 total components was individually inspected on-site by the inspection team. The inspection team subsequently concluded that the project had essentially been constructed in line with current national standards; the main facilities had been properly installed and adjusted; the joint equipment trial operation revealed no anomalies; the project archival materials had been collected, and the project passed flight testing and conformed to the official acceptance requirements. The inspection team was then able to declare that the project had successfully passed the examination process.

The new Xiahe airport is classified as a category 4C regional airport. Its runway stretches 3,200 meters long and 45 meters wide, and is situated at an elevation of 3,189 meters high, thus giving the airport high-altitude characteristics. As such, it can accommodate high-altitude configured models of the Airbus A319, Boeing 737 and other aircraft of equal or smaller size. The airport is home to a level 5 fire rescue unit and features a non-precision approach system for its Runway 10 and a CAT I precision approach system for its Runway 28. The terminal takes up an area of 3,185 square meters and the adjacent apron has room for 3 aircraft parking stations. In addition, the airport’s supporting facilities have been constructed.

Days after passing inspection, the airport was put into operation.
