Green construction techniques are being used to build Qingdao Jiaodong International Airport, which is scheduled to open in the second half of 2019.

Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) officials said the new airport will function as a regional hub, and the gateway for traffic to Japan and South Korea.

Qingdao Jiaodong is being built in line with international green standards with energy conservation and water-saving measures, the officials added. Moreover, the design is the first for a Chinese airport to reflect the ‘sponge city’ concept of environmentally friendly drainage and flood control methods.

Construction work started in mid-2015. In Phase I, there will be two independent 3,600 m-long parallel runways (one 60 m wide and the other 45 m), so the new airport will be able to handle large widebodies such as the A380. Qingdao Jiaodong will be capable of handling up to 55 million passengers in its 450,000 m 2 terminal building, 1 million tonnes of cargo and 452,000 aircraft movements per year. It will replace Qingdao Liuting International Airport as the main aviation gateway to the city. The older airport processed 23.21 million passengers, 179,592 flights, and 232,000 tonnes of cargo in 2017.
