Enhancement of transfer services between international and domestici flights will improve the distribution of wealth among all Chinese cities.Regionally - Currently, there are more than 40 cities with populations of over one million within 3.5 hours flying time of Shenzhen. This makes Shenzhen an excellent location for a regional hub.
