Nanchang Changbei International Airport (IATA: KHNICAO: ZSCN) is an airport serving Nanchang, the capital of Jiangxi province, China. It is located 28 km north of Nanchang. Construction began in October 1996 and went into operation on September 10, 1999. It replaced Nanchang Xiangtang Airport which was a joint civilian and military airport. It has a runway with a length of 2800 metres and a terminal building with six gates. As of 2010, it was undergoing an expansion which includes a new terminal and a second runway.
