Linfen Airport Re-opening Reconstruction Project Receives Approval from National Development and Reform Commission


National Development and Reform Commission had approved officially the implementation of the re-opening reconstruction project of Shanxi Linfen Airport. The approval stated: implementing Linfen Airport’s reconstruction works is beneficial in reasonably utilizing the existing airport resources, improving the layouts of Shanxi Province’s civil aviation airports and combined traffic transportation system, and enhancing regional economic development, mineral and tourist resources development. The original Linfen Airport was approved to build in 1958, put into operation officially on January 1, 1960, and subsequently opened flight routes from Linfen to Taiyuan and Changzhi. Autumn, 1965, Linfen Airport closed its service due to the nationwide economic downturn and high vacancy rate. Until the early 70’s, Linfen Airport was used only for general aviation flights such as agricultural and meteorological tasks. As understood, after the reconstruction of Linfen Airport, the passenger throughput volume of the re-opened airport would reach 430 thousand and cargo-mail volume of 1500 tons in 2020. The total investment of the project was RMB 446 million. Linfen Airport is located at Qiaoli Town, Yaodu District of Linfen, a 15 kilometers distance from Linfen City. There is Huohou First-class Highway on the west that links to various cities and counties for convenient routes; and Linfen Airport is 199 km away from Taiyuan Wusu Airport, 150 km from Yuncheng Guangong Airport, and 160 km from Changzhi Airport.
