Zhengzhou is a dusty rural/ industrial city in central China so it’s hard to see why it has an “international” airport at all. I havn’t been called comrade once in my seven years living in China but I suspect the bad treatment experienced by the poster below is reserved for residents of HK Macao and Taiwan Province who have their very own queue at all airports. Aren’t they lucky! My most recent visit to ZZ confirmed my impression of a well run clean and shiny new airport. As with most Chinese airports the departures area is big open with a sweeping roof while arrivals seems small dark and pokey by comparison. The airport (and the city as a whole) seems to be swamped with coffee shops mostly local brands with “western” food on the menu. At the airport they are quite expensive but at least one promised free internet access so it’s not all bad. The best value food was in arrivals- Dicko’s a Chinese fast food chain. Only other options for eating are continence stores throughout the terminal with over prices snack food. Once airside the only choice is the expensive coffee shop mentioned earlier- at a higher price. The usual situation for restrooms in China- BYO paper but otherwise they are relatively clean and efficiently run but expect to have to put up with the smokers.
