Zhuhai Airport serves the city of Zhuhai, Guangdong, China. Located in the Pearl River Delta, near Macau, Zhuhai is a popular tourist destination and is served by almost all major Chinese airlines. China Southern is a major operator at the airport. Zhuhai Airport hosts the Zhuhai Air show, which has been held every even-number year since 1996.

Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) reported a set of “remarkable” results in FY2010/2011, with the airport setting records for all major performance indicators, including record net profit, revenue, passenger traffic, freight traffic and aircraft movement results.
China is uniquely well placed to lead the global transformation in air traffic management, at least according to Boeing. Boeing Commercial Airplane’s vice president of Air Traffic Management, Neil Planzer, has forwarded the opinion that as China is neither burdened by the fragmentation that characterises EU airspace or the dated infrastructure of the US it has “the opportunity to demonstrate strong leadership and create transformational system design, development and implementation through its five year planning cycle”.
China has taken another step in opening up its low-altitude airspace to general aviation traffic, launching a trial permitting helicopters to operate in low-altitude airspace over Haikou, the capital city of China's southern island province of Hainan. The aim of the testing is to validate plans to gradually open up China’s airspace to private aircraft. Under a plan announced in 2010, trials for opening up low-altitude airspace will be rolled out in other areas over the next five years.
China’s second-tier carriers are hard at work at present, rapidly expanding their domestic and (in some cases) international route networks. However, the vast majority of these airlines are now doing so under the control of the "Big Three" carriers and/or HNA Group, as consolidation accelerates in China. As such, China’s airline evolution is at a very interesting stage. Where previously the major airlines: 1) established considerable branch carrier networks to serve diverse geographic areas in China; and 2) eliminated brands of the acquired airlines, they now appear to be looking more strategically at segmenting the market, retaining the second-tier carrier brands, particularly those focused on tourism/leisure markets.
China’s 'big three' airports - Beijing, Guangzhou and Shanghai - may be exhibiting a strong rebound in demand, but some truly breathtaking activity is occurring at China’s second tier airports. Growth rates of 25% and above are commonplace, as are extensive upgrade and expansion projects to keep up with galloping demand. A battle is meanwhile unfolding between airports in Western China for the mantle of that region’s pre-eminent hub, while airlines are adjusting their strategies for serving China’s burgeoning second-tier airport network in the face of rising competition from high speed rail.
Aircraft movements at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) are still on the decline, with the airport handling nearly 22,000 fewer movements in 2009 than in 2008. However, there is concern that, as the economic recovery takes hold, airport congestion at peak times could lead to increasing levels of delays and add flight times into Hong Kong. The worry is that air traffic corridors and airspace available for civil aviation in the Pearl River Delta (PRD) region are insufficient to handle growth and that any more delays and diversions could eat into airlines’ prospects for recovery, as growth returns over 2010. As a major regional hub HKIA now serves a significant volume of transfer/transit traffic and a growing number of small aircraft, operating through PRD airspace into Mainland China.
