Major improvements are planned for Sanya Phoenix Airport which serves the coastal city in China’s southernmost province of the island of Hainan. The airport is on the Luhuitou Peninsula overlooking the South China Sea.
It originally opened in 1994 but was substantially expanded in 2002 and 2003 to cater for the 20% annual growth of passengers. Further expansion of the main terminal and the construction of a new international terminal are now being carried out to increase the airport’s ability to handle up to 6 million passengers a year.
