New destinationsEdit

KLM began the first intercontinental air route out of Xiamen, to Amsterdam, on 27 March 2011.[3] Since then, long-haul traffic has expanded, with XiamenAir launching flights to Sydney, Vancouver and Los Angeles after taking delivery of the Boeing 787.

New airportEdit

As the city of Xiamen continues to grow, Gaoqi Airport has little room to expand after the latest completion of terminal 4 in 2014. A new airport is currently under construction on Dadeng Island, Xiang'an District, currently known as Xiamen Xiang'an International Airport and scheduled to be completed by the end of 2020. When completed it will boast two new runways, a 550,000 sq meter terminal, and be able to handle up to 45 million passengers, and have subway transport links to Xiamen railway station.[4][5]
