Sanya Phoenix International Airport (IATA: SYX, ICAO: ZJSY) is an airport serving the city of Sanya in Hainan, the southernmost province of China. It is located about 15 km (9 mi) northwest of the city center.
Sanya Phoenix International Airport is a main airport hub and comprises close to ten thousand acres. The airstrip is about 3.4 thousand meters long and 60 meters wide, which satisfies requirements for take off and landing of a fully weighted Boeing 747, Airbus 340 and other large aircraft. In 2012, Sanya Airport handled 11,343,387 passengers, making it the 19th busiest airport in China in terms of passengers, and 24th busiest in terms of movements with 81,456 in 2012. Known for its small size, it plays a vital part in bringing tourists into Sanya.

Ground transportation connections
Sanya Phoenix Airport Railway Station of the Hainan Western Ring High-Speed Railway, which is planned to be opened by the end of 2014, will be located just north of the airport. Initially, it will only be connected to the Sanya Railway Station on the Hainan Eastern Ring High-Speed Railway (10 km to the east), and will provide frequent high-speed rail service to a number of points along Hainan's eastern coast.
With the construction of the rest of the Hainan Western Ring High-Speed Railway, from Sanya Phoenix Airport to Haikou (expected to open in 2015), rail service from Sanya Station will become available to stations on the island's west coast as well.
