Hotan Yutian Airport

Yutian Airport (于田机场)is an airport scheduled to be built in Yutian County(于田县), Hotan Prefecture, Xinjiang, China. The construction budget is CN¥710 million.

The airport will have a runway that is 3,200 metres (10,500 ft) long and 45 metres (148 ft) wide (class 4C), a 3,000-square-metre (32,000 sq ft) terminal building, and four aircraft parking aprons. It is designed to serve 180,000 passengers and 400 tons of cargo annually.

The county derives its Chinese name from the Kingdom of Khotan, although the official name was written as “于阗” at the time. This was later changed to “玉田” (literally, Jade Field) following the adoption of Simplified Chinese, and eventually to “于田“. Also its Uyghur name is derived from the Keriya River. Yutian County is dubbed the “Home of Jade”.
