Huizhou Airport
Simplified Chinese 惠州机场

Huizhou Airport (ICAO: ZGHZ) is a dual-use military and civil airport serving the city of Huizhou in Guangdong Province, China. It is located in the town of Pingtan in Huiyang District, 20 kilometers from the city center, and was formerly called Pingtan Airport (Chinese: 平潭机场). The former military airport served commercial flights between 1985 and 2002, but stopped when the military was forbidden to operate commercial businesses.[2] Construction to expand the airport began in March 2011 with an estimated investment of 100 million yuan, and commercial flights were expected to resume in late 2011.[3]
