Horinger new area -- in Hohhot, North China’s Inner Mongolia autonomous region -- is set to build an airport security center for its new planned international airport that will be constructed in the area, according to local officials.
New Hohhot Airport is an airport construction project that will replace the current Hohhot Baita International Airport. The masterplan was approved by CAAC last year, under which the airport will be completed by 2022 and by 2025 it will have annual capacity of 22 million passengers and 200,000 tonnes of cargo.
Officials said Horinger new area signed an agreement signed for the new security facility with Inner Mongolia Civil Aviation Airport Group in Hohhot on May 7.
Under the agreement, the two parties will establish a lead group to closely liaise on such major questions as site selection, the timing of the development and construction, planning and design plans and public service support for the security base.
It will be tasked with vigorously pushing for a rapid start and the orderly progress of the project.
Officials said housing for employees of the new airport security base will be constructed in the Yungu area of the new district.
They added that at the same time, Inner Mongolia Civil Aviation Airport Group is to give full play to the important role of the airport industry in promoting local economic development. It will strengthen the construction of the airport facilities by focusing on an innovative and comprehensive urban transport system and promoting the economic development of the Horinger new area.
