Hanzhong Chenggu Airport (Chinese: 汉中城固机场), or Chenggu Air Base, is a military air base currently being converted to a dual-use military and civil airport to serve the city of Hanzhong in Shaanxi province, China. Located in Chenggu County northeast of Hanzhong, it will replace the existing Hanzhong Xiguan Airport, which cannot be expanded due to its proximity to the city center. Construction commenced in late December 2011 with an estimated total investment of 580 million yuan.[1]

Facilities[edit]

The expansion project includes a new runway that is 2,500 meters long and 45 meters wide, and a 5,000 square-meter terminal building. The airport is designed to handle 300,000 passengers and 1,300 tons of cargo annually by 2020.[1]
