The first flight arriving at Wudangshan Airport was from Wuhan, capital of Hubei.
Hubei Airport Group will begin managing the airport in one or two months. The airport will also open flights to four Chinese cities of Tianjin, Kunming, Hangzhou and Xi’an, the company said.
The airport is 20 km from Mount Wudang and about 15 km from Shiyan city. It is designed to handle 900,000 passengers and 2,250 tonnes of cargo and mails by 2020.
Mount Wudang, with a long history associated with Taoism, is home to numerous palaces and temples that exemplify the architectural and artistic feats of China’s imperial Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties.
