China will have more than 130 new airports by 2025, which will bring the total number of airports to 370, said Wang Zhiqing, Deputy Director of the Civil Aviation Administration of China, at the 24th World Route Development Forum.
Last year, China launched 382 new international air routes, with the total international air route number increasing to 1,634, twice that of 2015, Wang said, also citing 550 million trips by plane last year in China, which accounted for 16.3 percent of the global total.

Now, there’s no direct flight between China and Jamaica, and it takes hours to transfer in the US, Canada, or European countries. But Jamaica has been in discussions with China with the plan of launching air routes to connect Jamaica and China, which will allow it to tap into the Chinese market substantially.
