Shache Airport (Chinese: 莎车机场) is scheduled to be constructed to serve Yarkant County (Shache) in Kashgar Prefecture of Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in northwestern China. It will be located near Zirefuxiati Village (孜热甫夏提) of Zirefuxiati Tajik Township. The airport received approval from the State Council of China and the Central Military Commission in January 2014. It is projected to cost 541 million yuan to build.[1]


The airport will have a 3,000-meter runway (class 4C), a 3,000 square-meter terminal building, and four aircraft parking places. It is projected to handle 200,000 passengers and 830 tons of cargo annually by 2020.[1]
