Hainan provincial government confirmed in its 2015 work report that the construction of the new Boao Airport will start on schedule. “The provincial government and institutions are going over the plans and the groundwork has already been laid for work on Baoao Airport to begin in March,” Qionghai City deputy secretary Zhonghui Zhang said.
Baoan Airport will be situated in Zhongyuan township 12 km from Qionghai municipality. It will be built to handle international and domestic flights using large planes such as the 737-800 and A320. It will have a 45x2,600 meter runway and a 13,000 sq meter terminal with 26 boarding gates.
The construction of Boao Airport will accelerate Hainan’s integration with the national “one link one route” strategic policy and elevate the province’s importance in the future. It will also have a positive effect on the island’s tourism and marine industries.(Translation by David)
