changchun Longjia International Airport (IATA: CGQ, ICAO: ZYCC) is an airport in Jilin Province, China, for which it is an aviation hub in China's Civil Airport System. The airport is 31.2 kilometres (19.4 mi) north-east of provincial capital Changchun and 76 km (47 mi) north-west of Jilin City: responsibility for the operation of the airport is shared by both cities. Changchun Airport is a regional hub for China Southern Airlines.

Longjia International Airport was approved for construction in 1998. Construction started on 29 May 2003, and the airport began its operations on 27 August 2005. The name of the airport (龙嘉), and the town which it is located near, literally means "Fortunate Dragon". The name was given and written on the airport terminal building by the then Premier Zhu Rongji.

The airport was intended to replace the operations of Changchun Dafangshen Airport, which was built in 1941 by the Japanese as the capital airport of Manchukuo and was closed for military use after Changchun Longjia commenced operations, and commercial flights to and from Jilin Airport were transferred to Changchun Longjia from 3 October 2005. It is the only complete civil airport that serves the entirety of Jilin province.

According to original designs in 1998, the airport is estimated to serve only 2 million passengers, but the Municipal Government rejected this design, believing it would soon be insufficient for the city's needs, which later turned out to be a wise decision. However due to this delay, the redesign of the airport did not start until July 2001.

The airport was later expanded in 2009, the construction added two more jet-ways to the international section of the terminal, and enlarged the apron to the airport. The construction was finished in May,2011. The airport is now able to accommodate long-distance wide-body jets such as the Boeing 747. The terminal, which was expanded to its present size in 2009, encompasses 73,300 m2 (789,000 sq ft). of space. It is predicted that by 2015, the airport will be able to handle 6.5 million passengers per year. As in the year 2011, Changchun Airport received a passenger flow of 4.9 million, making it the 33rd busiest airport in Mainland China in terms of passenger services.

The airport serves most major cities in China and East Asia, with scheduled international flights to Seoul, Tokyo, Osaka, Hong Kong , Taipei and so on. It is the one of the major international gateways in North-eastern China.
