Shenzhen Airlines flight ZH9309 landed at Zhanjiang Airport on April 1 with 139 passengers on board, marking the official launch of the Zhanjiang-Huizhou-Wenzhou air route.
A Boeing B738 flies the route daily, following two separate schedules. On Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays, the plane takes off from Wenzhou at 1:00 pm and then lays over in Huizhou at 3:00 pm. Departing once again at 4:00 pm, the flight eventually arrives in Zhanjiang at 5:10 pm.
The subsequent return flight leaves Zhanjiang at 6:00 pm and hits the tarmac in Wenzhou at 10:05 pm with a 50-minute stopover at Huizhou.
On Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, the plane leaves Wenzhou at 12:45 am and stop overs in Huizhou at 2:35 pm. The flight takes off again at 3: 20 pm, and arrives in Zhanjiang at 4:30 pm.
For the return flight, the plane takes off from Zhanjiang Airport at 5:20 pm and lands in Wenzhou at 9:15 pm. During that period, it lays over in Huizhou from 6:30 pm to 7:20 pm before taking off again.
With the addition of the new air route, Zhanjiang now has access to every civil airport in Guangdong province, which is of great importance to the area's connectivity and synergetic development.
