Honghe Mengzi Airport (Chinese: 红河蒙自机场) is a dual-use military and civil airport scheduled to be built in Mengzi City, capital of the Honghe Hani and Yi Autonomous Prefecture in China's southwestern Yunnan province near the Vietnamese border.[1] The airport is located in Daguoxi Village (大郭西村), Yuguopu Town (雨过铺).[2]

History[edit]

The airport was first proposed in 1999, but was repeatedly delayed due to complications with the military Mengzi Air Base. On October 9, 2012 the project finally gained approvals from both the State Council and the Central Military Commission of China, with the decision to build a dual-use airport to replace the existing air base. Construction was expected to begin by the end of 2012 with a total investment of 3 billion yuan.[1]
