Good news for Pudong transit passengers
Shanghai Daily
Mar 15, 2012

INTERNATIONAL passengers transferring to other international flights at Pudong airport within 24 hours will not need to go through double immigration checks starting today, according to police.

It's the first time that the practice will be used at airports on the Chinese mainland, the police said.

In the past, transit passengers were required to go through immigration checks and get their passports stamped on arrival.

Now, they will be guided by airlines staff via passages to transfer to flights after security inspection.

Police said during busy times long queues are seen at immigration counters. Now the lines will be shorter.

Signs for international transit passengers have been put up at the airport's two terminals, officers said.

But the police stressed that travelers who leave the restrained airport areas during the transfer are not included in the exemption.

It is believed the immigration check exemption "will speed up the process and save time" for passengers seeking to board international flights at a time when Shanghai's immigration authorities reported busier entry and exit volume in recent years.

Normally it takes about 15 minutes for a passenger to clear immigration checks.

The new plan will shorten minimum connection time for international transit passengers as Shanghai tries to further facilitate airport service in a bid to develop the city into an aviation hub.

Last year the passenger volume at immigration counters was more than 25.27 million, officials revealed. Among them nearly 90 percent used airports, a 6.8 percent increase over a year ago when the city hosted the World Expo.

At Pudong airport, a total of 410,000 passengers transferred between international flights, an 80 percent jump compared to that of the previous year.

Some air passengers, while welcoming the exemption regulations, suggested the policy should be further extended to those transiting within 48 hours or even 72 hours.

Low clouds change hundreds of flights at Pudong
Shanghai Daily
Mar 30, 2012

BECAUSE of low clouds at the Pudong International Airport, more than 200 flights were delayed and shifted between late Wednesday and early yesterday, airport authorities said.

Among those affected were 13 international flights, such as those from Japan to Shanghai, that were directed to land at nearby the Hongqiao International Airport.

More than 1,700 passengers whose landing place changed arrived at the Hongqiao airport by 3am yesterday, said immigration police.

The tie-up also led to delays and stranded passengers yesterday at Pudong, said the airport operator.

It was the second time local air traffic was hit by bad weather in a month. In late February, nearly a thousand flights were canceled or delayed at Pudong.

The weather this time was caused by strong humidity from rain and warm air, which should be restrained with an approaching cold front, said the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau.

Shanghai once again will see rain after basking in sunshine for most of the week, forecasters said, reminding city residents to dress warmly as the temperature drops today.

Downtown Shanghai's temperature will fall to 10 to 18 degrees Celsius, down from highs of more than 25 degrees Celsius early this week, according to forecasters.

Passengers punished for halting plane at Pudong airport
Shanghai Daily
2012-4-13

SHANGHAI police said yesterday that they have handed down administrative punishment to the 20 angry passengers who took their protest onto a taxiway at Pudong International Airport to demand compensation for their delayed flight on Wednesday.

Though the passengers didn't intend to stop any planes on the taxiway, their behavior have violated the security regulation of China's civil aviation, city police said last night.

The civial aviation administration has also started an investigation into the incident. The watchdog expects to give domestic airlines some guidelines on handling compensation issues for flight delays.

Officials from the East China Civial Aviation Administration said the passengers resposible for the airport break-in should be seriously punished as such behavior poses big risks to flight safety.

Under whatever reason, nobody can be allowed to enter banned areas of an airport, as it threatens the safety of thousands of air passengers, officials said.

Officials also pointed out it was inappropriate for Shenzhen Airlines to compensate 1,000 yuan to each passenger, since the delay was caused by bad weather.

China probes airport incidents over flight delays

BEIJING, April 15 (Xinhua) -- China's aviation authority said Sunday it is investigating two airport incidents related to passenger's fury over flight delays, urging the whole industry to improve post-delay services.

An unnamed official with the Civil Aviation Administration (CAA) told Xinhua that passengers rushing into airports' flight control areas violates law and jeopardizing their own safety, hoping passengers will take rational approach to protect their interests.

On April 11, 28 passengers of the Shenzhen Airlines rushed into the tarmac of the Shanghai Pudong International Airport in discontent of their treatment after their flight had been delayed due to thunderstorm.

The incident caused no casualties but disrupted the landing of a flight of the Emirates Airline. Passengers were persuaded to return to the boarding gates later.

Sources with the Shenzhen Airlines said the company found no other ways to appease the ultra-emotional passengers but to compensate 1,000 yuan for each of the affected.

On April 13, a number of passengers of the Hainan Airlines rushed into the tarmac of the Baiyun Airport of Guangzhou after heavy rains delayed flights.

CAA official told Xinhua that the administration has alerted the local authorities to better handle the delay cases, as the stormy weather is frequent recently.

News Analysis: Tarmac protests disgrace China's aviation industry

BEIJING, April 17 (Xinhua) -- Flight delays due to inclement weather may be frustrating, but there isn't much one can do about them.

However, when groups of Chinese passengers rush onto a tarmac in protest over flight delays, it may indicate that there is a bigger problem facing the country's aviation industry.

China's aviation regulator said it is probing two cases involving "ultra-emotional" behavior. Experts have said the chaotic management of China's aviation industry may be to blame for the country's chronic flight delays.

On April 11, 28 passengers waiting for a Shenzhen Airlines flight rushed onto a runway at the Shanghai Pudong International Airport to protest their treatment after their flight was delayed due to a thunderstorm.

The incident disrupted an Emirates Airline flight. The passengers were persuaded to return to their boarding gate after protesting on the tarmac.

A similar incident happened on April 13, when several passengers waiting for a Hainan Airlines flight rushed onto the tarmac of the Baiyun Airport in Guangzhou after heavy rains delayed flights.

Xu Guangjian, a professor with China Renmin University, said the chronic delays reveal fundamental loopholes in the management of the aviation industry.

According to sources with Shenzhen Airlines, passengers were asked to board and get off the plane three times and endure a sleepless night as they waited nearly 21 hours for the flight to begin.

Airline employees and ground servicemen also experienced a challenging evening after being bombarded with rapidly changing ground and air data.

Since the aviation industry is highly inter-connected, an integrated information system is essential to deal with emergencies and changes.

Xia Xinghua, deputy head of the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC), said in a meeting earlier this year that domestic airports should create such information systems. The Shanghai Pudong International Airport has yet to put such a system into place.

Airports have been reluctant to establish integrated information systems because they have not been encouraged to do so by local regulators, even though the CAAC has said that it wants them to set up the systems.

In 2004, the CAAC gave regulatory rights for domestic airports, with the exception of the Beijing Capital International Airport and airports in Tibet, to local governments for the purpose of mobilizing local resources to develop the aviation industry.

After this reshuffling, the aviation industry became divided into three parts: airlines regulated by state asset management forces, airports regulated by local governments and aviation law enforcement regulated by the Ministry of Public Security.

While it stands to reason that the airlines' performance should be evaluated according to the services they provide, the state asset management forces care only about the value of the airlines' assets. The CAAC, as a major industry regulator, also lacks an essential evaluation system that focuses on service.

The chaotic protests have also exposed aviation security problems. An expert who declined to be named said that while the number of air passengers has nearly quadrupled in recent years, the number of aviation security personnel is roughly the same as that of 8 years ago.

Management loopholes that could explain the persistent delays should be taken seriously, Xu said, adding that authorities should free up airspace for civil use to ease air traffic.

Passenger numbers at China's airports hit 620.5 million in 2011, up 10 percent year-on-year, according to CAAC data.

To cope with surging demand amid its economic boom, China plans to invest more than 1.5 trillion yuan (238 billion U.S. dollars) in the aviation industry by 2015, Li Jiaxiang, head of the CAAC, said last year.

How the heck did they get onto the tarmac? You probably will get shot if you pull a stunt like this in the US.

Wonder if they were boarding by stairs instead of by airbridge?

Fog plays havoc at airports as flights delayed, canceled
Shanghai Daily
Apr 20, 2012

MORE than 200 flights were delayed or canceled at Shanghai's two airports yesterday due to fog and clouds, portending tougher times for passengers as flight delays occur often in the spring and summer.

Heavy fog enveloped Shanghai's Pudong International Airport from 4:30am and decreased visibility to 300 meters, the city's weather authority said. Visibility increased after 8:30am but thick clouds were still covering the airport.

A total of 86 domestic and 40 international flights departing from Pudong and Hongqiao airports had been delayed as of yesterday afternoon, while over 100 domestic and international arrivals were also delayed, the airport authority said.

Some 17 departing flights and 14 arriving flights were canceled.

About 30 international flights including those from Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and Phuket, Thailand were forced to change and land at Hongqiao International Airport where fog was less serious than at Pudong, the authority said.

"Many departing flights were forced to wait on runways because of the cloudy weather, especially at the Pudong airport," Shanghai-based China Eastern Airlines said.

The carriers arranged shuttle buses to take passengers from the Hongqiao airport to Pudong for connecting flights.

China Southern Airlines also issued a delay alert in the morning as more than 12 of its flights from Pudong were delayed.

Severe weather will occur in the coming summer, causing more flight delays, the airlines warned yesterday.

Hundreds of flights were delayed or canceled because of thunderstorms yesterday and on Wednesday in Beijing, Guangzhou and Shenzhen. A total of 173 flights were canceled and 60 flights were delayed for over an hour at Beijing Capital International Airport on Wednesday.
