According to the design proposal, the roof over the Central Hall and the four boarding bridges of the Terminal 2 of Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport (CTU) adopts a steel truss structure and is presented in a "bamboo-leaf" shape in rows. The outline and veins of each "bamboo-leaf" are delineated by steel truss while the "leaf surface" is made of glass that allows light transmission, which is a combination of beauty, sturdiness and natural lighting.


Upon completion, the Terminal 2 will be shaded by the transparent and huge "bamboo leaves", which is a manifestation of the "charm of bamboo in the Heavenly State", a distinctive characteristic of Sichuan.


The Central Hall of the Terminal 2 has a floor area of 200,000 square meters, with three floors above ground and two underground. The underground hall will contain the luggage sorting system and water, electricity and gas supply equipments, while a transfer hall and underground corridors are specially built so that passengers can transfer between the Terminal 2, the subway stations and the inter-city railway stations seamlessly. The above ground part will be planned for the arrival and departure halls, dining areas, fourteen baggage carousels, six check-in islands and twenty-eight security check passageways.

One of China's oldest airports, Kunming Wujiaba International, will cease operations at the end of this month, in favor of the new Kunming Changshui International Airport, 21 km east of the city.


Wujiaba airport, with a history going back to the early 20th century, was home to the legendary "Flying Tigers", the 1st American Volunteer Group (AVG), during the War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression (1937-1945).


In 2011, Wujiaba handled more than 22 million passengers, more than double its design capacity, making it the seventh busiest airport on the Chinese mainland.


Kunming Changshui, with an investment of more 23 billion yuan (about US$3.6 billion), is designed to handle 38 million passengers a year and about a million tons of cargo traffic.


The airport will be China's fourth largest airport after Beijing, Shanghai Pudong and Guangzhou.


From June 28, all operations will transfer to the new airport and Wujiaba will be demolished.


The construction of the new airport is part of Yunnan's efforts to be the gateway to Southwest China. The province, which has 12 domestic airports, borders Vietnam, Laos and Burma. The new Kunming airport will connect 14 domestic cities and those neighboring countries.



The southeast China province, with an area of 390,000 square kilometers, has complicated terraces and 84 percent of its land is mountainous, and some cities still do not have any rails.



The arrival of the new airport is also hoped to encourage airliners to introduce more aircrafts and open more flights.



Luck Air, for instance, Yunnan's second largest airliner in terms of market share, plans to introduce at least three new planes this year. Currently it has 17 aircraft and operates 38 routes.

CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- The 26th Asian Freight & Supply Chain Awards (AFSCA), sponsored by Cargonews Asia, the most prestigious trade magazine, honored Chongqing Airport, the one and the only in Mainland China, with the best newly-rising airport for its prominence in international (regional) air cargo over the past two years.


The influential AFSCA, sponsored by Cargonews Asia, the best of its kind in the Asia-Pacific region, found its awardees through online vote.


That Chongqing Airport had been widely acknowledged by its peers for its burgeoning air-cargo business both regionally and internationally was mirrored in the honor, said Zhao Jiangping, General Manager of Chongqing Airport Group Co., Ltd.

way to go Chongqing Jiangbei Airport.

Makes sense given Chongqing's position in Industry and Cargo/Shipping/Distribution.

Feasibility study completed for Shanghai Pudong Airport 4th, 5th runaways
(WCARN.com, June 20)


Quote:
Feasibility studies on the fourth and fifth runway construction projects of Shanghai Pudong International Airport have passed experts' assessment on a Feasibility Study Report Meeting held in Beijing from June 11 to 13.

Besides project planning, airspace utilization and flight procedures, other items like content and scale of the construction programme, land requisition & building demolition, evaluation of environmental impacts, energy-saving approaches and investment estimation are assessed by experts and representatives present at the meeting.


It is agreed that the new runways are designed to fulfill the goal of building Shanghai as a base for large passenger aircraft and ARJ regional aircraft in terms of research & development, final assembly and customer service.


It is learned that, the fourth runway is 3,800 meters long and 60 meters wide, while the fifth runway is 3,400 meters long and 45 meters wide. And their aircraft movement area reference code will be 4F and 4E respectively.


Once the construction is completed, the runways will be able to meet the demand of flight tests for C919 and ARJ-21 aircraft, both of which are produced by Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China, Ltd. (COMAC).

I think at the present it would make more sense to ask WHEN (or IF?) Pudong is going to have a proper Maglev connection to the main central areas of Shanghai (Lujiazui+Puxi) and Hongqiao airport. If that happens it's more than enough to serve the passengers going to/from airport.

Why is the one of the new runways 60m wide and the other is 45m wide? Both should be 60m wide to accommodate future planes.

Shanghai airport passenger traffic up 9.4% in May
(WCARN.com, June 21)

Quote:
Shanghai Airport reported its May traffic on June 20. According to the report, it handled up to 30,811 takeoffs and landings and 3.725 million passengers in May, together with 247,000 tonnes of cargo and mail.

Aircraft movements and passenger volume grew by 7.2% and 9.4% respectively year on year, while cargo and mail volume was down 3.7% compared with the same period last year.


On a month-on-month basis, aircraft movements in May increased by 2% compared with April; passenger throughput dropped 3% while cargo and mail volume registered a monthly growth of 0.8%.


The airport achieved rapid growth in terms of international traffic. In May, international traffic surged by 14.3% year on year, way faster than the 8% year-on-year growth of domestic traffic. On the other hand, there were indications of slow growth when compared with the figure for April, with international traffic in April achieving a yearly growth of 22% and domestic traffic up 7.8% year on year.


It is revealed that international traffic rebounded more quickly than domestic traffic. According to the data, passengers flying internationally accounted for a high portion of the airport's total customers - with its international passenger throughput and flight movements both occupying as much as 48%.



Routes centered on Japan and Korea took up 40% of the international routes. Therefore, the international service plays a very crucial role in the air passenger market.


The Fukushima earthquake in March 2011 brought significant negative impact on the airport's international routes, and even on the overall passenger traffic demand, which showed a growth rate of merely 1.12% in that month.



Moreover, passenger throughput even registered consecutive negative growth in the subsequent months. Up till now, the influence of the earthquake has faded away and the overall demand has been back to steady growth.



As for the first quarter of 2012, passenger volume jumped by 10.7% year on year, in comparison with the 8% growth rate of the same period last year.


On the other hand, the recession trend continued in cargo market. Due to the combination of low fare and high cost in international cargo market, airlines are performing under par in terms of cargo business.



According to some analysts, exports still face tough business conditions given the overall cargo market this year. With the current feeble international economic environment, it is hard for the cargo market to return to the 2010 peak.

Judging by the latest satellite pictures, construction has already been underway for over a year.

China's Xi’an's Xianyang Airport Opens new Terminal

China's Xi’an's Xianyang Airport Opens new Terminal
Posted 31/05/2012


Xi’an’s Xianyang International Airport has officially opened its new 230 000-m² Terminal 3 and launched operations on its recently completed 3800-m second runway that will raise the airport’s annual capacity to 33 million passengers. The terminal, which took three years to build, stands at a 90º angle to the existing terminals and is capable of handling 22 million passengers alone. It features 30 shops and restaurants and will be home to China Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Shanghai Airlines, and China United Airlines. It is located next to a new ground transport centre from where it is possible to get long-distance coaches to major cities in the region.

Traffic at the airport has grown from 11.9 million passengers in 2008 to 21.2 million in 2011, and Xi’an Airport already handled 4.9 million passengers (+9.3%) during the first quarter of 2012. This growth has been attributed to the airport becoming part of the Fraport portfolio five years ago as well as sustained growth of the Chinese economy, Xi’an’s attractiveness as a tourist destination (terracotta army), and on-going efforts to develop the airport’s infrastructure and route network. Because of the expected future growth, the airport plans to start work on an extension to Terminal 3 within the next few months.

China Exclusive: China to build airport in poor Tibetan prefecture
(Xinhua/WCARN.com, June 27)





Quote:
Authorities in northwest China's Qinghai province plan to build an airport in the province's poorly-developed Golog Tibetan autonomous prefecture to boost the local economy and help the government better cope with emergencies, local officials said Wednesday.

Construction on the Dawu Airport, located near the prefecture's government seat, is expected to start in 2013, said Wu Ziqiang, deputy head of the prefecture government. The project is estimated to cost 1.17 billion yuan (US$186 million).


The airport will be the fourth one being built in Amdo, a sprawling Tibetan-populated area that spans parts of the provinces of Sichuan, Gansu and Qinghai. The other three airports -- two in Sichuan and one in Gansu -- will be put into use in 2013.

China has started building a number of airports in its Tibetan regions over the past few years. In the Tibet autonomous region, six airports are in operation, with construction on the world's highest airport in Nagqu -- 4,436 meters above sea level -- starting this year.


Wu said preparation for the construction of the Dawu Airport was made difficult due to Golog's rough terrain, adverse weather, and high altitude -

about 4,000 meters above sea level. It took four years for the State Civil



Aviation Administration to approve a construction plan for the airport.
The airport will significantly improve transportation to Golog, whose main

town is a six-hour drive away from the provincial capital of Xining, Wu said.


Golog borders Yushu, a Tibetan prefecture hit by a 7.1-magnitude earthquake in 2010 that killed 2,698 people. Officials said that if not for an airport that was built near the prefecture's main town of Gyegu before the disaster, the death toll could've been much higher.


The airport helped cut the travel time from Gyegu to Xining from 10 hours to just one. About 2,133 injured people were airlifted out of Yushu, while flights sent 17,051 rescuers and more than 2,100 tonnes of relief materials to the quake zone in a timely fashion.


Golog remains the least-developed among China's ten Tibetan autonomous prefectures, all outside the Tibet autonomous region, in terms of both economic activity and income. Last year, the gross domestic product of Golog was 2.6 billion yuan, or 3.4 percent of that of Xining. The average annual income of rural residents and herdsmen in Golog was only 2,964 yuan in 2011.


Golog officials have vowed to boost the region's development by fast-tracking large infrastructure projects and developing a high-end tourism industry.


The provincial tourism bureau said it will spend 200 million yuan to develop the Mt. Nyanpo Yutse region in south Golog into a "world-class" plateau resort.
