Quote:
It is learned from Hebei Airport Management Group that Shijiazhuang Zhengding International Airport will handle a passenger throughput of 5.2 million by the end of this year. Besides, the airport is expected to open flights to Southeast Asia and Japan within the year, by which time it will be more convenient for people from Hebei province to travel abroad.

According to a relevant supervisor of Hebei Airport Management Group, Shijiazhuang Airport will open a number of new air services and increase the frequency of some flights successively from June.



In terms of passenger transport, China Eastern Airlines Corporation Limited Hebei Branch will launch a five-time-weekly flight linking Shijiazhuang and Qinhuangdao from June 8. Spring Airlines Company Limited will launch a Shenyang-Shijiazhuang-Hong Kong flight from June 19, providing more choices for local people travelling between Shenyang and Hong Kong.



Besides, Beijing Capital Airlines Co., Ltd. will launch a Sanya-Shijiazhuang-Harbin flight service, and a Chongqing-Ordos-Shijiazhuang route will be opened by China Express Airlines Company Limited.

As for international flights, the supervisor also disclosed that the airport will open a Seoul service in June. Apart from that, a Japanese service is expected to be launched by Spring Airlines within the year. The opening of these international flights makes it possible for people from Hebei province to travel to Southeast Asia within the year.

During the summer holidays, the frequency of routes from Hefei to Guilin has risen since the end of May.


From May 28 to August 31, there will be four extra round-trip flights from Hefei to Guilin per week on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.

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.
