HistoryEdit

Ningbo's Lishe was an auxiliary air force base of the Republic-era Chinese Nationalist Air Force, and was the final launching point of Martin B-10 bombers commanded by Captain Xu Huansheng and Lieutenant Tong Yanbo of the 14th Bomber Squadron of the 8th Bomber Group in their famous transoceanic raid to Nagasaki and other cities in the Empire of Japan on 19–20 May 1938.[2][3]

Lishe airport was opened for civil service on 16 November 1984 when a CAAC Antonov AN-24 aircraft landed at the military Ningbo Zhuangqiao Airport (宁波庄桥机场).

In 1985, the Central Government of China approved the construction of Ningbo Lishe Airport. On 30 June 1990, it opened for service and became the first civil-only airport in Zhejiang. The construction cost was RMB 126 million.

In July 1992, the airport opened for international service. The first international service was opened to Hong Kong later the same year. In November 1998, service to Macau with onward code-share connection to Taipei and Kaohsiung started. International cargo flights started by the end of 1998.

In March 1997, Great Wall Airlines established a hub at the facility. The airport has services to 38 domestic destinations in China and international services to Hong Kong, Seoul, and Macau. It is served by 16 airlines.

It was renamed Ningbo Lishe International Airport from Ningbo Lishe Airport on 29 November 2005.

Its operator signed a strategic partnership agreement on 10 June 2005 with Fraport, the operator of Frankfurt Airport under which it will sell a 25% stake to the German airport operator.[citation needed]
