Qingdao Liuting International Airport (IATA: TAOICAO: ZSQD) is the main international airport serving the city of Qingdao in the Chinese Shandong Province. It is about 31 kilometres (19 mi) from the city center and serves as a hub for Shandong Airlines and Qingdao Airlines as well as a focus city for Beijing Capital Airlines and China Eastern Airlines.


From 2004 to 2006, the airport underwent an expansion of its terminal as well as adding more parking spaces which was part of its initial 2010 goal to expand Liuting Airport to handle 5.2 million passengers annually or 2400 passengers and almost 120,000 tons of cargo hourly. The runway was also extended to its current length.[citation needed] Its IATA code is used for its former romanized name Tsingtao.[citation needed]

In 2012, Qingdao Liuting was the 17th busiest airport in China with 12,601,152 passengers.[citation needed] In December 2013, the Chinese government approved the construction of Qingdao Jiaodong International Airport which will replace Liuting as Qingdao's main airport.[1]
