Ningbo Lishe International Airport

Ningbo Lishe International Airport was put into use in June 1990 following project approval from the State Council and the CPC Military Committee in 1985. In July 1992, with approval from the State Council, the airport was formally opened to the outside world. In 1996, the airport was expanded, including the terminal building and airfield. The expanded terminal building, already put into service in October 2002, is designed to handle 3.8 million passengers per annum or 1700 passengers per hour at peak time. The airfield expansion work includes the extension of runways, supporting lighting, piloting and fire fighting works, which will be completed in 2006. In time, the runways will reach a total length of 3200m and the airport will become a Class 4E airport. To date, an approximate investment of RMB 1.653 billion has been put into the airport construction.

Ningbo Lishe International Airport has opened more than 30 air routes to Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Hongkong and ect., with about 170 flights per week. The development goal for Ningbo's aviation is to expand Lishe Airport into a main-line airport according to the 4E standard. The yearly passenger transport capacity is to be raised up to over 3.8 million; and 1,700 passengers handling capacity in the rush hour be realized. The annual cargo handling capacity is 46,700 tons, MD-11, 747-SP air craft could be also lifted up and put down. In the traffic circle within 1-3 hours, there are five large international airports, which are Ningbo Lishe International Airport, Xiaoshan International Airport, Hangzhou International Airport, Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport and Shanghai Pudong International Airport.

Ningbo Lishe International Airport has been officially named as an international airport with a ceremony this week. Meanwhile, the expansion of the airport flight zone is also completed. This turns Ningbo into a real gateway to the international airway business.
The commencement of Ningbo Lishe as an international airport opens a new window into the development of Ningbo's aviation industry. In 2006, international passenger and freight airways will be truly opened to foreign airliners, according to the Airport authorities.

The Airport has worked out medium-term and long-range development strategies to launch international airlines, and cooperate with all domestic airliners. It also arranges with All Nippon Airways (Japan), Asiana Airlines (S. Korea) and Malaysian airline companies. In the first half of 2006, Ningbo Lishe will open airlines to Japan, S. Korea and Southeast Asia, including the Ningbo-Kuala Lumpur-Sanya, Ningbo-Nagoya-Clark (the Philippines) lines.

Chen Zunju, general manager of Ningbo Lishe International Airport, 'Our first choices for next year are Japan and S. Korea. Now we are approaching airliners like Asiana and Korean Air, then other Southeast Asian airliners, and after a careful planning, we'll consider Europe, the US and the Middle East'.
