Tianjin Binhai International Airport (IATA: TSNICAO: ZBTJ) is an airport located in Dongli District, Tianjin. It is one of the major air cargo centers in the People's Republic of China.

It is the hub airport for Tianjin Airlines, established in 2004, and privately owned Okay Airways. It's also a focus city for Air China.

In 2010, Tianjin Binhai International Airport handled 7,277,106 passengers, a growth of 25.9% over 2009, making it the 22nd busiest airport in China.

The airport is also the site of the Airbus A320 final assembly line which started operations in 2008.[1]

New terminal and second runway[edit]

Construction of a new terminal began in 2005 and was fully operating by 2008. The airport expansion provides a state-of-the-art terminal building, which is more than three times bigger than the current one at 116,000 m2. When the three construction phases are complete the airport terminal will be over 500,000 m2 and be able to handle 40 million passengers a year. Over the period of the project the airport site will enlarge from the current 25 km² to 80 km². The airport as a whole will resemble Amsterdam's Schiphol airport in size and will be able to handle over 500,000 tons of cargo and 200,000 flights a year.

The expansion, with a total investment of nearly 3 billion yuan (409.5 million U.S. dollars) widened the runway to 75 meters from 50 meters and lengthened it to 3,600 meters. In May 2009, the airport has also completed the construction of a second runway, and the expected number of passengers will exceed ten million.

The terminal has Tianjin Airlines headquarters.[2]

On August 28, Tianjin Binhai International Airport Terminal 2 will come into use. The second floor will be used as an arrivals hall, while the first floor is a departure hall. Underground, on level B1, there will be a public transport hub, used to connect the airport terminal to various methods of public transportation. This includes a subway station level, a transfer hall and an underground parking lot. Terminal 2 will be connected to subway line number 2, meaning that passengers can get to the terminal straight from Tianjin Railway Station.[3]
