Changsha Huanghua International Airport (IATA: CSX, ICAO: ZGHA) is the airport serving Changsha, Hunan province, People's Republic of China, as well as nearby cities such as Zhuzhou and Xiangtan. Located about 25 kilometres (16 mi) from downtown Changsha in the town of Huanghua in Changsha County, the airport has two terminal buildings and is currently among the busiest airports in China. The airport is managed by the Hunan Airport Authority, a publicly owned corporation managing all five airports in Hunan Province. Changsha Datuopu Airport/AFB (IATA:

Construction for the airport started on June 25, 1986, and the first flight departed on August 29, 1989. The airport went through a major expansion in 2008–2011, with the addition of Terminal 2 which went into operation in 2011.
The old terminal (Terminal 1) covers an area of 33,000 square meters and consists of concourses A, B, and C.
