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.
Sichuan Airlines has secured approval to use fifth freedom rights to extend a route from Chengdu, China to Prague, Czech Republic and onto Zurich, Switzerland beginning June 23.
The new twice-weekly Chengdu-Prague-Zurich Airbus A330 service is expected to become the first fifth freedom flight from Chengdu to transport passengers to a third country.
Currently, the domestic regional carrier operates international services that include twice-weekly Chengdu-Prague service and two European routes to Moscow and St. Petersburg.

Sichuan Airlines will operate 3 direct flights Weekly between Auckland and Chengdu.
New Zealand's largest city Auckland is set to welcome Sichuan Airlines' inaugural flight from Chengdu, capital of southwest China's Sichuan Province on Tuesday.
"New Zealand is in a strong position to attract airlines, with a liberal international air transport policy that allows most major airlines to operate services to New Zealand without restriction," Bridges said in a release.
"We have negotiated 60 new or amended air services agreements since 2012," Bridges said, adding " In that time period, the number of services Chinese airlines can offer each week under arrangements between our countries has risen from 7 to 59."
"New Zealand is an increasingly popular tourist destination for Chinese visitors," he said.
In the year ended March 2017, 404,384 Chinese visitors came to New Zealand -- an increase of 7 percent on the year before, and visitors from China spent 1.45 billion NZ dollars (1.05 billion U.S. dollars), second only to the spending by visitors from Australia, according to the minister. New Zealand is further expanding its international connectivity, allowing people to get to and from Chinese provinces with greater ease, he said, adding that it is also a testament to the success of New Zealand's International Air Transport Policy, which provides additional opportunities for these airlines.
