History of Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport
Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport has a long and rich history that dates back to 1921, when the construction of the airport started. It was opened for mixed civilian use in May 1923, and became the first airport in Shanghai to offer flights between Shanghai and Beijing. In 1937, the airport witnessed a historical event known as the Oyama Incident, which triggered the Battle of Shanghai during the Second Sino-Japanese War. The airport was also used by the Chinese Air Force and the US Army Air Forces during World War II.
After the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949, Hongqiao Airport became the main airport of Shanghai and underwent several expansions and renovations. In 1964, the airport was renamed as Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport and started to operate international flights. In 1999, with the completion of Shanghai Pudong International Airport, most international flights were moved to Pudong, while Hongqiao Airport focused on domestic and regional flights. In 2010, a new terminal (Terminal 2) and a new runway were opened at Hongqiao Airport, increasing its capacity and efficiency.
