The Chinese ones, reading what it says, I can see they belong to the Paracel Islands (South Sand, West Sand, East and Middle Sand) in the South China sea.
 
Guess this is an advertising issue trying to help in their sovereignty claims.

And the first one shows Chubu International Airport, on an artificial island.

No clue about the arabic one... Socotra for example?

Chubu International Airport - yes, that is the correct answer!

The second answer is no, this is not Socotra!

No, these are not answers yet, because there are no specific names of the islands on which the airports are built!

Paracel Islands - Wikipedia

Paracel Islands - South Sand islands  - If you look at the maps based on satellite imagery, then everything shows what was built, but you cannot find these airports by your names.

There are more specific names, and there are about 130 islands in total, and three of them have airports, and there are names for the islands and the exact coordinates..

Yes, the island has three names. And there’s a fourth ...   ;D

It remains to guess two more other islands of the same group

I give a hint: each airport represents one of four different groups of islands. Names for these groups are indicated.
