A consortium led by the China Southwest Architectural Design and Research Institute has won the planning and design contract for Phase II expansion of Yantai Penglai International Airport in Shandong Province.
The consortium includes the Shanghai Civil Aviation New Era Airport Design and Research Institute and Hong-Kong-based Aedas Group.
Yantai Penglai, which serves Yantai city in Shandong province, processed 6.5 million passengers in 2017 through its 80,000 m2 terminal, which was designed to serve up to eight million passengers per year. Phase II expansion includes a second runway and a new 180,000 m2 Terminal 2 (T2) to serve up to 23 million passengers per year (2030). Scheduled to open in 2021, the new building will be located south of existing Terminal 1.
And with a planned expansion to over 200,000 square metres, its capacity will rise to 34 million passengers per annum by 2040.
