If you have customers flying to the capital of Guangdong, then Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport (CAN/ ZGGG) is a convenient gateway to China’s third-largest city. Situated on the Pearl River, Guangzhou has been a strategic port for centuries. It’s also a haven for foodies as the city boasts more restaurants per capita than anywhere else in China.
The airport is approximately 30 km north of downtown Guangzhou. Business and general aviation customers are well catered for and Jet A-1 is available here.
Even further south on the Pearl River Delta, Shenzhen is often described as ‘one of the world’s most mega megacities’. As China’s financial capital, Shenzhen is a hustling, bustling metropolis with a skyline that’s dominated by striking modern buildings. The city is a feast for all the senses with multicultural dining, endless shopping opportunities and a thriving arts and music scene.
Situated approximately 32km from the city centre, Shenzhen Bao’an International Airport (SZX/ ZGSZ) is also a convenient alternative for those travelling to Hong Kong with direct ferry routes between the neighbouring cities. Jet A-1 is available here.
