Construction started on June 1, 2020 and was completed on Dec 14, 2021. The facility covers 13,686 sq m (3.4 acres) in reconstructed pavement, a 17,000-sq-m new taxiway, 1,906-m (half-acre) boundary line, as well as corresponding navigation lights, firefighting, security, and monitoring facilities.
Zhuhai Airport now possesses 23 aircraft stands. The 10 new remote stands of Apron 3 will address the need for aircraft parking space as the airport is undergoing renovation and expansion for a second terminal.
The outdoor exhibition area of Zhuhai Airshow Center is being converted into Apron 3 of Zhuhai (Jinwan) Airport to utilize space that is not used between biennial sessions of Airshow China.
The outdoor exhibition area of the Zhuhai Airshow Center has been approved as Apron 3 to provide 10 more aircraft stands at Zhuhai (Jinwan) Airport during months that the China International Aviation & Aerospace Exhibition (Airshow China) is dormant.
