Yibin Caiba Airport

Yibin Caiba Airport (Chinese: 宜宾菜坝机场) (IATA: YBP, ICAO: ZUYB) is a dual-use military and civil airport serving the city of Yibin in southern Sichuan Province of China. Located in the town of Caiba in Cuiping District, the airport was expanded twice, in 1991 and 1993.[1]

In 2011 Yibin Caiba Airport served 326,000 passengers, a 12.4% increase over the previous year, and 2,737.6 tons of cargo. As the airport’s current location limits its capability to expand, in May 2012 the State Council of China approved the building of the new Yibin Wuliangye Airport to replace Caiba Airport.[1]
