Huangyan airport, located in the eastern coastal town of Taizhou in China's Zhejiang Province, has reopened to commercial traffic after the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) ordered it closed in late July citing significant security loopholes.

In July, a knife-wielding male passenger attempted to set fire to a curtain and newspaper during a Shenzhen Airlines (ZH, Shenzhen) flight from Huangyan to Guangzhou. Flaws in the airport's security procedures during a subsequent review led to the dismissal of a number of officials.

China's WCARN reports while Air China (CA, Beijing Capital) and Shenzhen Airlines resumed limited flights to the airfield on Friday, August 28, other operators such as Chengdu Airlines (EU, Chengdu Shuangliu), China Eastern Airlines (MU, Shanghai Hongqiao), and Kunming Airlines (KY, Kunming Changshui) are only expected to resume operations there later on this year.
