Construction is well underway at the Qingdao Jiaodong Airport, which is located in Jiaozhou - a city under the administration of Qingdao - and it is expected to dramatically boost Qingdao's economy, as well as its international influence.

"Qingdao's new airport is expected to come into service in the second half of next year, forging itself into a regional gateway airport, catering to passengers traveling to and from Japan and South Korea, and an international air cargo pivot airport on the Bohai Rim," said Sun Zubin, head of the general affairs office of the Qingdao Jiaodong Airport.

Xu Dongchang, an executive of the general management department at the Qingdao Jiaodong Airport, said: "The new airport broke ground in 2015. Construction of the main structures in the terminal area, the flight area and the supporting area has been completed."
