It is located near Jiangying, in Wancheng District, 12 kilometers east of the city center.

History[edit]

The original Nanyang Airport was built in April 1934 and occupied by the Japanese during World War II. After the war it was used as a military airport with some civil flights. In October 1992 the new Jiangying Airport was built at the current location with an investment of 77 million yuan, and the old airport was closed. The new runway was 1,800 meters long and 45 meters wide. In 1998 the airport was expanded at a cost of 22.8 million yuan, lengthening the runway to 2,300 meters. Scheduled flights to Guangzhou, Shanghai, and Beijing started in 2004.[4]
