Taiyuan Wuxu International Airport (IATA: TYN, ICAO: ZBYN) is an airport serving Taiyuan, the capital of Shanxi province, China. It is the largest airport in Shanxi and is located about 15 kilometers (about 9.3 miles) southeast of downtown Taiyuan.

Built in 1939, it has evolved into one of the busiest and most important airports of Shanxi Province, with connections to most major cities within China. Since March 2006, the airport has undergone an expansion phase with a new terminal at a cost of CNY 1.57 billion, and is capable of serving 6 million passengers a year. Construction was completed in late 2007. Since this expansion, it has been able to serve as a diversionary airport for Beijing Capital International Airport, and notably performed that function during the 2008 Beijing Olympics.[1]

The airport is a focus city for both China Eastern Airlines and Hainan Airlines. As of 2015, Taiyuan Wuxu International Airport was the 28th busiest airport in the People's Republic of China, with 8,842,987 passengers.
