Flight Test for the Meizhou Airport Expansion Project was Successful



In early August, a B737-800 aircraft with registration number B5641 from Shantou Airlines Ltd. took off from Chaoshan International Airport and arrived at Meizhou Airport. The flight test lasted for nearly three hours, allowing all operational tests including navigation facilities, lighting system, flight procedures, ground handling and apron operations to be completed.

The expansion project of Meizhou Airport costs a total investment of 450 million Yuan. The main items of the project are the expansion of the runway from 1,800 meters long to 2,400 meters long and from 40 meters wide to 45 meters wide. Also, the air traffic management, communication and navigation, meteorological services, fire prevention, navigation lighting work, power supply work and more were all upgraded or reconstructed. The aircraft movement area reference code was promoted from 3C to 4C. After the expanded airport is put into operation, a slightly less than full capacity A320 or Boeing 737-800 aircraft, can fly directly to Beijing, Singapore or other locations.
