Tianjin Binhai International Airport airport codes|TSN|ZBTJ (zh-sp|s=天津滨海国际机场|p=Tiānjīn Guójì Jīchǎng) is an airport located east of Tianjin, in Dongli District. It is one of the major air cargo centers in the People's Republic of China.

It is the hub airport for the newly established and privately owned Okay Airways.

International flights are primarily operated by Korean Air and Asiana Airlines to Seoul-Incheon International Airport, All Nippon Airways and Japan Airlines to Nagoya-Chubu Centrair International Airport.

In 2007, the airport handled 125,087 tonnes of freight, and became the 12th busiest airport in China. Tianjin Airport is also among the fastest-growing airports in China, registering a 19.5% increase by traffic movements, a 39.6% increase by passenger traffic and a 29.3% increase in terms of cargo traffic in 2007.

New terminal and second runway

Construction of a new terminal began in August 2005 and was completed by the end of 2007 scheduled to be in full operation by 2008. The airport expansion will provide a state-of-the-art terminal building, which is more than three times bigger than the current one at 116,000m². When the three construction phases are complete the airport terminal will be 180,000m² and be able to handle 40 million passengers a year. Over the period of the project the airport site will enlarge from the current 25,000km² to 80,000km². The airport as a whole will resemble Amsterdam's Schiphol airport in size and will be able to handle over 500,000 tons of cargo and 200,000 flights a year.

The expansion, with a total investment of nearly 3 billion yuan (409.5 million U.S. dollars), started in August 2005. The runway was also widened to 75 meters from the current 50 meters and lengthened 400 meters to 3,600 meters. In March 2008, the airport will also begin construction of a second runway, and the expected number of passengers will exceed ten million (using the old and new terminals).
