Yan'an Nanniwan Airport (IATA: ENY, ICAO: ZLYA) is a dual-use military and public airport serving the city of Yan'an in northern Shaanxi Province. It is located in Liulin Town (柳林), Baota District, 13 kilometres (8.1 mi) southwest of the city center.[1]

Yan'an was formerly served by Yan'an Ershilipu Airport. In 2002, the Yan'an city government proposed the construction of a new airport to replace Ershilipu and it was approved by the Chinese national government in 2009.[2] Nanniwan Airport was opened on 8 November 2018 with an inaugural China Eastern Airlines flight from Hangzhou Xiaoshan International Airport, and all civil flights were transferred to Nanniwan from Ershilipu Airport.[1]

Facilities[edit]

Nanniwan Airport has a runway that is 3,000 metres (9,800 ft) long and 60 metres (200 ft) wide (class 4C), a 13,000 square metres (140,000 sq ft) terminal building, and seven aircraft parking aprons. It is projected to serve 1 million passengers and 800 tons of cargo annually by 2020.[2]
