Zhuhai (Jinwan) Airport's never-used east airside concourse became fully operational on Feb 9, increasing the number of gates from 15 to 23 and annual handling capacity by 150 percent to 12 million passengers.

Air China, China Express, and Shenzhen, Kunming and Shandong airlines now depart from and arrive at some of the new gates. Once all 23 are in operation, the facility will have adequate passenger handling capacity for the next five years, said an airport executive.

Ceremony for renovated east concourse

Zhuhai Jinwan, which opened in June 1995, was the country's largest airport with what was at the time state-of-the-art facilities. Its translucent glass airside concourses, adopting Swedish technologies, were taken as reference by domestic producers back then.

Yet, only one airside concourse has been in use although the facility was designed to handle 12 million passengers at airside concourses on each wing of the U-shaped terminal.
