The Ningbo Lishe International Airport, located in East China's Zhejiang province, is about 12 kilometers from downtown Ningbo, or a 20 minute drive.
The airport's Terminal 2, which is 2.5 times larger than Terminal 1, began operating at the end of 2019 with a 3,200-meter-long taxiway, a 112,400 square-meter terminal tower, and 60 aircraft stands.
The new terminal, which is equipped with advanced communication and navigation control equipment, meets 4E class standards and can accommodate large aircraft such as the Boeing 747.
Metro line 2 is the most convenient and economical way to get to the new terminal.

As of the end of 2019, it was offering a total of 143 flights, including 15 international ones.
There are regular flights to many Chinese cities/regions, including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenyang, Xi'an, Xiamen, Shenzhen, Nanjing, Kunming, Chengdu, Urumqi, Hong Kong, Macao, and Taiwan, as well as international cities such as Fukuoka, Osaka, and Nagoya in Japan; Incheon and Cheju in South Korea, and Bangkok, capital of Thailand.
