Chinese Time Zone Seems to be Wrong

I am flying from Beijing to Urumqi and I noticed that the local time zone is wrong for Urumqi, normally when flying you will see the time zone change, but in China, this should not be the case as the entire country follows the GMT +8 time zone. But as I am preparing to land in Urumqi, I am noticing this is GMT +6.

Ah, thank you, I did not see this when I was looking earlier. But (I have 0 coding knowledge or anything like that, so this is not meant to be me sounding like I know anything, just a general question) if it is calculated by geographical location, would it not be possible to just set a geographical timezone for the entirety of china that overlaps the base timezone ones? Again I have no coding knowledge, just curious is all
