Introduction to Urumqi (ZWWW) Airport for Sunday

On Sunday, one of the featured airports is Urumqi, one of the most important international airports in the west part of China. I will take some time to control it on Expert Server this Sunday. This airport is an excellent fit for the newly released China Southern Boeing 757.

About the Urumuqi Diwopu Int’l Airport

Urumqi is the largest city in Xinjiang Autonomous region of China. This is a very diverse region culturally. You can see below in the picture that the architecture of the terminal building is a mix between Chinese style and Islamic style. ZWWW airport is a huge hub for China Southern and Hainan Airlines.

I plan to open it on 2020-12-20T11:00:00Z2020-12-19T16:00:00Z
It subjects to the limitation that whether I can get the control of the airport. (I might open it shorter.)

I think it’s good idea for you to open it so we can fly there in solidarity with what is happening to the Uighur minority in China. Thanks for opening it and for an amazing guide, I will try to stop by!

Due to the political sensitive nature of this place, I’d recommend not to talk about the politics specific stuffs here.
Welcome more aviation discussions. :)

This was also before the pandemic. People arriving from China are now banned from entering Taiwan/ROC, so CZ temporarily suspended this route.

Tselinograd is Astana or Nur-Sultan. Almaty was called Almaty.

Thanks for your support!

Maybe I should do Urumqi to some airstrip in the Wakhan Corridor in Afghanistan. There is like a 3 hour time difference once you cross the border. Maybe the sky might suddenly be dark? 🤷
