Shanghai China Shanghai airport

 

Shanghai Pudong International Airport is located in the eastern part of Pudong district. It is the biggest international airport in China, handling 17.15 million of passengers of which 9 million are foreigners. It exceeds even Beijing International Airport with its 12 million. It is the main hub for Shanghai Airlines and China Eastern Airlines.

The airport opened in 1999. Earlier the Hongqiao Airport handled international flights. It has 2 runways, the third is under construction. The second terminal is scheduled to e completed in 2007. The long-term plan is counted to enhance the capacity to 80 million passengers each year. It implies the construction of three terminals, to satellite halls and five parallel runways.

It is linked with the city via Transrapid, the first operational maglev railway in the world. The line runs to Long Yang Road metro station. It has a peak speed of 431 km/h and a track length of 30 km.

The airport received a 40 billion yen (~400 million USD) grant from Japan. It handles exceeding number of airlines at rush hour times, and many planes have to park on the apron. The construction of Terminal 2 will solve this problem, but at the present time only Terminal 1 is operational.

 China Southern Airlines, which operate mostly domestic and short-distance international  flights, but have torrents of passengers, stated that the airport will have five Airbus 380s, but it is not clear yet whether the airline will have a hub in Pudong.
