The primary design for the renovation and expansion of Taizhou Airport in East China's Zhejiang province was approved by the East China Regional Administration of Civil Aviation Administration of China and Zhejiang Provincial Development And Reform Commission on July 16.

Covering 73 hectares, the renovation and expansion project, which will cost 3.65 billion yuan ($521.84 million), will be a rebuilding of the civil aviation part of Taizhou Airport.

The rebuilding includes a 35,000-square-meter terminal, a parallel taxiway exclusively for civil aviation, 16 aircraft stands and control towers, a 4,753-sq m freight station, and other supporting facilities.

The terminal is designed to have a combined area of 34,950 sq m, five times larger than the existing terminal, and will deliver 2.5 million passengers a year.

The entire building will be 24 meters tall on average with the highest section being 33.5 meters, and will include two ground floors and one underground floor.

The first floor will include a domestic baggage sorting and pick-up hall, a domestic departure hall, an arrival hall, a domestic reception room, a VIP hall, and a control center.

The second floor will include a check-in hall, a security check area, a waiting hall and a VIP lounge while the underground floor will be used for traffic transfers.
