New Hailar Airport runway put into operation


The airport’s new runway was built with a 2,800-meter-long and 45-meter-wide runway, capable of accommodating the landings and takeoffs of aircraft under B767-300. It has a cement concrete surface 36 centimeters thick. The newly constructed runway is located 176 meters away from the south of Hailar Airport’s former runway. The runway was moved 200 meters to the east from the west end of the former runway and a 7.5-meter wide runway shoulder was constructed on both sides of the newly built airstrip. This expanded the width of the newly built runway to 60 meters. The former landing strip is now being used by Hailar Airport as a reserved parallel taxiway. The formal operation of the new runway of Hailar Airport is highly anticipated by Hulunbeier City’s tourism sector. The runway construction project is an important component to promote the tourism development of Hulunbeier. And with the upcoming 29th Olympic Games, to be held in Beijing in August 2008, the city’s tourism sector is certain that international tourists will include the city on their list of places to visit.
