Expanding Qingdao: new airport to fuel rise of trade gateway

​The development of Qingdao Jiaodong International Airport is listed as a priority by the Qingdao government. According to the plan, Qingdao’s new airport will be developed into a regional hub and gateway to Japan and Korea.This paper analyses the significance of the new airport and addresses the following questions: 

  • What are the drivers behind the building of the new airport?
  • Why has the new airport been planned for Jiaozhou?
  • What impact will the new airport have on the development of Qingdao?
  • How will the new airport affect Qingdao’s real estate market?
  • What makes a successful “aerotropolis”?​

​Sensible and diversified positioning of Qingdao Jiaodong International Airport and its supporting functions will bring opportunities for the city’s development. The development of the new airport will not only promote Qingdao’s transportation infrastructure, but also the development of related industries. Despite lengthy planning and development periods, many globally recognised “aerotropolises” have eventually realised significant economic benefit from such initiatives.​
