Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport (IATA: SHA, ICAO: ZSSS) is the main domestic airport serving Shanghai, China, with limited international flights. It is located near the town of Hongqiao in Changning District, 13 km west of downtown, and is closer to the city center than Pudong Airport, Shanghai's main international airport.
In 2010, Hongqiao Airport handled 31,298,812 passengers, a growth of 24.8% over 2009, making it the 4th busiest airport in China and the 41st busiest in the World. The airport was also China's 5th busiest airport in terms of cargo traffic and the 7th busiest by traffic movements.
Hongqiao Airport served as Shanghai's primary airport until the completion of Pudong International Airport in 1999, when almost all international flights were moved to Pudong. The airport presently offers mainly domestic flights, as well as five international or cross-border routes with "city-to-city" service to central Tokyo's Haneda Airport, central Seoul's Gimpo Airport, central Taipei's Songshan Airport, Hong Kong, and Macau.
