Beijing Nanyuan Airport (simplified Chinese: 北京南苑机场; traditional Chinese: 北京南苑機場; pinyin: Běijīng Nányuàn Jīchǎng) is an airport in Beijing, People's Republic of China (IATA: NAYICAO: ZBNY). Located in the southern portion of the city, in Fengtai District, and 3 kilometres south of the Fourth Ring Road and 13 kilometres from Tiananmen Square, Nanyuan Airport was first opened in 1910, making it the oldest airport in China.[1] It is primarily a military airfield but also equipped with a terminal capable of handling 1.2 million passengers per year and presently serves as the base of China United Airlines. Nanyuan Airport is going to close once the planned new Beijing Daxing International Airport is built, which is expected to be completed in October 2017.[2]

In 2008, Nanyuan Airport witnessed high growth rate. The total number of passengers served increased by 80.1%, reaching 1,357,038; total freight loaded/unloaded reached 13,243 tonnes, which was a 65.6% increase from the previous year.
