Tianjin Binhai International Airport( IATA : TSN, ICAO : ZBTJ) is an airport located in Dongli District, Tianjin. It is one of the major air cargo centers in the People's Republic of China.


It is the hub airport for Tianjin Airlines, established in 2004, and privately owned Okay Airways, as well as a focus city for Air China.

In 2017, Tianjin Binhai International Airport handled 21,005,001 passengers, a growth of 24.5% over 2016, making it the 19th busiest airport in China.

The airport is also the site of the Airbus A320 final assembly line which started operations in 2008, [1] and Airbus A330 Completion and Delivery Center which was completed by the end of 2017.

In 2018, Hainan Airlines started operating flights to Vancouver, making it the first ever route from Tianjin to a destination outside of Asia. The route ended in January 2019. [2]

New terminal and second runway

Construction of a new terminal began in 2005 and was fully operational by 2008. The airport expansion provided a state-of-the-art terminal building, which is more than three times bigger than the first one at 116,000 m2. When the three construction phases are complete the airport terminal will be over 500,000 m2 and be able to handle 40 million passengers a year. Over the period of the project the airport site will enlarge from the current 25 km² to 80 km². The airport as a whole will resemble Amsterdam's Schiphol airport in size and will be able to handle over 500,000 tons of cargo and 200,000 flights a year.

The expansion, with a total investment of nearly 3 billion yuan (409.5 million U.S. dollars) widened the runway to 75 meters from 50 meters and lengthened it to 3,600 meters. In May 2009, the airport has also completed the construction of a second runway, and the expected number of passengers will exceed ten million.

The terminal has Tianjin Airlines headquarters. [3]

On August 28, 2014, Tianjin Binhai International Airport Terminal 2 came into use. The second floor is used as an arrivals hall, while the first floor is a departure hall. Underground, on level B1, there is a public transport hub, used to connect the airport terminal to various methods of public transportation. This includes a subway station level, a transfer hall and an underground parking lot. Terminal 2 is connected to subway line number 2, meaning that passengers can get to the terminal straight from Tianjin Railway Station. [4]
