Chifeng Yulong Airport inaugurated


The Chifeng Yulong Airport, a key construction project of the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, was formally inaugurated on March 20th. Chifeng Yulong was the first airport used jointly by both civilian and military aircraft. It was approved for construction by the State Council and the Central Military Commission in December of 2004. The airport began its retrofit and expansion project on June 7th, 2006, and in December of 2007, a B737-800 jet from Air China successfully conducted a test flight at the airport. The airport’s official inauguration signifies its transition from a small airport, which can only accommodate the landings and takeoffs of small aircraft, into a medium-sized hub. It can now accommodate the takeoff and landing requirements of medium-sized aircraft such as the B737-800, A320 and other lesser-scale airplanes. The airport completion and formal opening is expected to promote Chifeng City’s integrated air transport capability.
