The airport serves the city of Lhasa, which is about 62 kilometres (39 mi) from the south-southwest of Lhasa, on the right (southern) bank of the Yarlung Zangbo River. The airport (elevation 3,700 metres (12,100 ft)) was built in 1965. It is a civilian airport, one of the highest airports in the world and has large terminal facilities and is close to the road to Tsetang, the capital of Shannan Prefecture. A second runway was built in 1994 and terminal facilities were upgraded in 2004.
