1. History

Hohhot Baita Airport was opened on October 1, 1958. In the mid 1980s and 1990s, it underwent two expansions and in June 2007 a new terminal was constructed. The new terminal covers an area of 54.499 square metres 586.620 sq ft with 11 parking jetways and is capable of handling 3 million passengers each year. Its runway was also lengthened and its widened to accommodate jumbo jets such as the Airbus A380. It served as one of the diversion airports for air traffic during the 2008 Summer Olympics.

With the rapid expansion of the city, Baita Airport is now surrounded by urban area and has no more room to expand to accommodate growing traffic. The Hohhot Shengle International Airport is being constructed in Horinger County to replace Baita Airport.
