Taiyuan Airport’s T2 completed


The retrofit and expansion of the Taiyuan Wusu International Airport was completed in time for the Olympics.
A ceremony marking the completion of the project was held on June 28 in front of the newly constructed Terminal 2 building of the airport. The project was begun in March 2006 as a key project of Shanxi Province in time for the Beijing Olympics. The project cost is about RMB 1.57 billion. The expansion project consisted of a new terminal building with an area of 55,000 sq. m., extending the runway and taxiway and widening of the runway and taxiway shoulders, and upgrading the flight area from 4D to 4E to accommodate large aircraft including the A380. A new apron was also constructed with an area of 210,000 sq. m., adding 18 aircraft parking stands consisting of 12 contact stands and six remote stands. The new Terminal 2 building will serve as an alternate landing airport for the Olympic Games. Flights at Terminal 1, however, will not be transferred to Terminal 2.
