Qingdao Liuting International Airport (IATA: TAOICAO: ZSQD) is the main airport serving the city of Qingdao in Shandong Province, China. It is about 31 kilometres (19 mi) from the city center. Qingdao is a focus city for China Eastern Airlines and Shandong Airlines. Its IATA code is used for its former name Tsingtao.

From 2004 to 2006, the airport underwent an expansion of its terminal as well as adding more parking spaces which was part of its initial 2010 goal to expand Liuting Airport to handle 5.2 million passengers annually or 2400 passengers and almost 120,000 tons of cargo hourly. The runway was also extended to its current length.

In 2012, Qingdao Liuting was the 17th busiest airport in China with 12,601,152 passengers.

In December 2013, the Chinese government approved the construction of Qingdao Jiaodong International Airport which will replace Liuting as Qingdao's main airport.[1]
