huhai Jinwan Airport (ZUH) aims to establish itself as a hub for business jets and implement a pilot training facility – ambitious goals for the smallest of the Pearl River Delta’s five airports all competing fiercely in the same market. In the first half of 2016, 2.73 million passengers and 13,160 tonnes of cargo passed through ZUH – both year­‑over­‑year increases of 18 per cent. In the same period, the airport added 15 new routes and now serves 39 cities on the mainland. A total of 21 airlines fly in and out of the airport which has no international routes as of yet.
