Jiuzhaigou airport in central China is set to resume scheduled passenger operations on April 18, 2018, following a four-month suspension caused by the closure of the neighbouring Jiuzhaigou National Park, The Standard has reported.

According to the ch-aviation schedule module, the airport will be served by Sichuan Airlines (3U, Chengdu) with 4x weekly service to Chengdu, operated with A319-100 equipment.

The suspension of the service followed an earthquake which caused devastation in parts of the Sichuan province in August 2017. While the airport itself was not destroyed, the neighbouring National Park, the main tourist attraction in the area, was closed until a partial re-opening in early March 2018.

For the time being, no other carrier announced service to Jiuzhaigau airport.
