HistoryEdit

The airport is jointly constructed and owned by the cities of Yangzhou (80% share) and Taizhou (20% share), with a total investment of 2.082 billion yuan. The airport was opened on 7 May 2012. During the design and construction stage it was called Suzhong Jiangdu Airport (Chinese: 苏中江都机场) (Suzhong means "Central Jiangsu"), but was renamed in November 2011 to reflect the names of the main cities it serves.[3]

FacilitiesEdit

Designed as a domestic regional airport (class 4C), the airport's runway was originally 2,400 meters long and 45 meters wide. It has a 31,000 square-meter terminal building and 13 aircraft parking aprons. It was designed to handle an annual throughput of 2 million passengers and 24,000 tons of cargo by 2020.[2][3]

In December 2018, the runway was extended to 3,200 meters and the airport was upgraded to class 4E. It is now capable of handling long-range, four-engine aircraft such as the Boeing 747 and the Airbus A340.[4]
