NDRC approves Chongqing Jiangbei International Airport construction project


China’s National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) recently approved the proposal for the retrofit and expansion project of the second runway and other support facilities of the Chongqing Jiangbei International Airport. The project’s completion is set for 2015. The airport was designed according to the requirement of 15 million passengers and 260,000 aircraft movements per year. The airport’s expansion will help accelerate the area’s civil aviation as well as promote Chongqing’s development. Major construction includes adding a second runway of about 3,200 meters to the east of the existing runway, building a parallel taxiway in between the two runways and setting up a visual aid lighting support system. It will also have a second terminal building (T2B) with an area of 60,000 sq.m., 41 apron aircraft parking stands, and a freight station and support facilities occupying an area of 20,000 sq.m. Apart from the main airport construction, the plans also include the development of air traffic control (ATC) and fueling projects of the Chongqing region. Based on the approved plan of the NDRC, a total of RMB 3.145 billion is allotted for airport construction, RMB 0.066 billion for ATC projects, and RMB 0.05 billion for fueling projects. The total investment for the airport expansion project is estimated at RMB 3.261 billion.
