Ürümqi Diwopu International Airport (simplified Chinese: 乌鲁木齐地窝堡国际机场; traditional Chinese: 烏魯木齊地窩堡國際機場; pinyin: Wūlǔmùqí Dìwōpù Guójì Jīcháng) (IATA: URC, ICAO: ZWWW) is located in Diwopu, a suburb north-west of Ürümqi, the capital of the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region in northwestern China. The airport is 16 km (10 mi) away from downtown Ürümqi. It is a focus city for China Southern Airlines and Hainan Airlines. It is the largest airport in western China and as of 2008, it is ranked the 21st busiest airport in China by passenger traffic.

History

Ürümqi Airport was opened to foreign passengers in 1973, and has been the emergency landing ground for airlines to Europe and west Asia.

Facilities

The airport covers an area of 4.84 million sq. metres. Its newly built runway is 3600 m (11,811 ft) in length. The airport can allow the landing of large aircraft such as the Boeing 747. The 110,000 sq. metre apron can accommodate over 30 aircraft.

Terminal 3

Construction of Terminal 3 to the west of the current terminal building began in April, 2007 at a cost of 2.8 billion yuan (350 million U.S. dollars). It will increase Diwopu's ability to handle more than three times its current (2007) 5.13 million passengers annually to 16.35 million passengers and also be able to handle 275,000 tons of cargo and 155,000 aircraft a year. Terminal 3 will also add an additional 21 jet bridges and nearly 106,000 square meters of new terminal space.

Usage

In 2002, 1,673,400 passengers and 35,000 tons of goods passed through Ürümqi Airport.

Summer 2005 saw Diwopu get a boost when the airport started receiving major foreign airlines; of them Korean Air was the first to start service from Seoul seasonally in June; two months later, Pakistan International Airlines began operations from Islamabad flying year round. Both airlines used wide body Airbus aircraft. PIA's operation did not last long and was suspended in April 2006.
