Lüliang Airport (IATA: LLV, ICAO: ZBLL)[2] is an airport serving the city of Lüliang in Shanxi Province, China. It is located near the town of Dawu in Fangshan County, 20.5 kilometers from the city center. Construction of the airport began on 21 February 2009 with an investment of 764 million yuan, and was originally projected to be finished in 2011.[4] The actual completion time was late 2013, and the airport was opened on 26 January 2014.[1]

It is a notorious "ghost airport"; despite its size and cost, it handles just three to five flights per day.[5][6]


The airport will have one runway that is 2,600 meters long and 45 meters wide (class 4C), and a 13,000 square meter terminal building. It is projected to handle 200,000 passengers and 900 tons of cargo annually by 2020.[1]
