Since Hainan was chosen as the pilot region for low-altitude airspace management reform in 2011, the low-altitude flight tourism market in Sanya has gradually been taking shape over the past few years.

Since the new policy was announced, a number of Chinese companies have set up general aviation operations in Sanya. There are two aviation companies operating in Sanya, Meiya Air and Yalong General Aviation Co., which offer a variety of low-altitude flight tourism activities including helicopter and seaplane tours.

The helicopter and seaplane routes cover the main attractions in Sanya, including the Sanya Bay coastline, East Island, Phoenix Island, Luhuitou, Wuzhizhou Island, Haitang Bay and Nanshan, providing tourists with an amazing perspective of Sanya’s most famous spots.

Besides tourism, Meiya Air has also expanded its business into emergency rescue and chartered services for clients to neighboring cities like Beihai and Foshan.

"The number of tourists in Sanya is increasing every year. Increasingly, they can afford and are very interested in new things like air tours," said one Sanya aviation official
