Judging probably the newer runways that have been built. Will the fourth and fifth runways be connected to the main airport/terminal facilities or will they remain separate?

4th runway ready for take-off in Pudong
Shanghai Daily
November 12, 2013

WORK has finished on the fourth runway at the Pudong International Airport, which will be put into service next year, officials with the Shanghai Airport Authority said yesterday.

The new runway will provide a testing ground for the much-anticipated Chinese-made C919 jumbo jet. It will also be used to conduct test flights of China’s ARJ21 regional jet.

With the new runway, the Pudong airport will be able to handle 80 million passengers a year, said Li Derun, deputy president of the Shanghai Airport Authority.

At 3,800 meters long, the fourth runway can cope with the world’s largest commercial plane — the Airbus 380.

Also under construction is a 3,400-meter fifth runway, which will be used for C919 test flights.

Once that is complete, Shanghai will have seven runways — five at Pudong and two at the Hongqiao International Airport.

The cost of the two new runways at the Pudong airport, operated by Shanghai International Airport Co Ltd, will be 9.4 billion yuan (US$1.54 billion).

“The Pudong airport will be important to Shanghai’s free trade zone, while the establishment of the zone also provides an opportunity for the airport to upgrade its facilities,” Li said.

In addition to the new runways, a new satellite terminal will be built at the Pudong airport by 2015, the city’s top planning body said yesterday.

Aircraft will be able to park around the entire circumference of the new S1 Terminal, said the Civil Aviation Development Outline 2011-2015, issued by the Shanghai Development and Reform Commission.

Renovations of Terminal 1 at the Pudong airport will also begin soon, including an expansion and upgrade to the luggage system, Li said.

The work, expected to be complete by the end of next year, will benefit Shanghai-based China Eastern Airlines, which will become the largest occupant of the terminal, said the airport operator.

Capacity of the terminal, which opened in 1999, will grow from 20 million to 36.8 million passengers a year, following the 1.2 billion yuan renovation.

The revamped terminal will be expanded by one story to seven floors, and new areas added to make transfers faster and easier, said authorities.

Shanghai plans for its two airports to handle 100 million passengers and 5.5 million tons of cargo a year by 2015.

Flights delayed as air pollution hits record in Shanghai
6 December 2013

SHANGHAI (Reuters) - Hundreds of flights were delayed or cancelled on Friday in China's commercial hub of Shanghai as record levels of air pollution shrouded the city in smog, prompting authorities to issue the highest level of health warning.

The incident is especially embarrassing at a time when China seeks to build Shanghai into a global business hub on par with the likes of London, New York and Hong Kong by 2020.

On Friday afternoon, the Shanghai government issued its severest health warning as the city's pollution index ranged between 23 times and 31 times the levels recommended by international health officials.

In the first such advice since a new health warning system was launched in April, authorities urged residents to stay indoors and asked factories to either cut or halt production.

"I don't think it's fit for people to live in this kind of environment," said Shanghai resident Fan Jianjun, 34, who wore a face mask as he walked through the opaque air in the Lujiazui financial district.

"But I have no choice. I still need to work. I can only take preventive measures but I have no idea whether they work."

Air quality in cities is of increasing concern to China's stability-obsessed leaders, anxious to douse potential unrest as more affluent citizens turn against a growth-at-all-costs economic model that has polluted much of the country's air, water and soil.

The government has announced many plans to fight pollution over the years but has made little apparent progress.

Most of the flights leaving Shanghai's Pudong International Airport have been delayed, according to the airport's website. Pudong was the world's third busiest cargo airport in 2011, data from the Airports Council International shows.

Hazardous air pollution forced schools to shut or suspend outdoor activities in at least two cities in eastern China on Thursday. Some schools in Shanghai cancelled outdoor activities on Friday, as well.

The unusually noxious haze was caused by several factors, including industrial pollution and auto emissions trapped by cold, windless weather, said Xu Bin, an associate professor at Shanghai's Tongji University.

By 0700 GMT, the level of PM2.5 particulate matter, or tiny particles in the air that are the most hazardous to health, reached a "severely polluted" 466, according to the Shanghai government's monitoring website, http://www.semc.gov.cn/aqi/home/English.aspx.

A similar measure by the U.S. consulate in Shanghai showed a reading of 503, a level described as being beyond the index on its website http://www.stateair.net/web/post/1/4.html.

Levels above 300 are considered hazardous, while the World Health Organization recommends a daily level of no more than 20.

100-gate H-shaped satellite now planned

In news just in, Dallas-based architectural firm Corgan has won a competition to design one satellite concourse with up to 100 gates.

I assume this will be placed where earlier plans called for two plus (+) shaped terminals.

Any forumers here with access to images, location etc. ?

How about an estimate on TOTAL FLOOR AREA.? This sounds huge around 100 gates.

Thanks! Looks great!
The word "satellite" doesn't do justice to this building. It seems to be nearly as large as the existing terminals 1 and 2 combined.

That looks like a pretty impressive terminal. It looks like an addition that will be great for PVG.

Pudong airport sees busy holiday traffic
Shanghai Daily
February 8, 2014

The number of passengers and flights handled at Pudong International Airport during the Spring Festival holiday climbed 40 percent and 6 percent respectively from the same period of last year, the airport said.

The airport recorded 516,000 passenger trips and more than 32,000 flights during the weeklong period from January 31 to February 6.

Japan was the most popular tourist destination for Chinese mainland travelers instead of previous favorite Thailand. The country attracted 88.6 percent more Chinese than last year.

Though the number of Chinese tourists dropped 12 percent from last year’s Spring Festival, Thailand ranked second on the list.

Next came Hong Kong, America and South Korea.

Aeromexico Looks East with Asian Expansion
(Travel Daily News/WCARN.com, March 27)

Aeromexico is expanding its operations in Asia, with the launch of extra flights to Tokyo and Shanghai.

Starting in April 2014, the Mexican carrier will add its fourth weekly flight to Tokyo's Narita International Airport, and then in July it will launch a third weekly flight to Shanghai's Pudong International Airport.

Following the frequency increase, the Tokyo service will depart Mexico City every Monday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday at 11:10 a.m., making a short stop in Tijuana on the Mexico-U.S. border, before arriving in the Japanese capital at 6:45 a.m. two days later.

The return flight leaves Tokyo every Monday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday at 3:25 p.m., getting back into the Mexican capital at 2:10 p.m. the same day. Aeromexico will serve the route using its brand new 243-seat, two-class Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.

On the Shanghai route, Aeromexico's three weekly flights will leave Mexico City International Airport every Tuesday, Friday and Sunday at 9:45 a.m., arriving at Pudong International Airport at 6:45 a.m., two days after departure.

The return leg leaves Shanghai at 10:45 a.m. every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, arriving back in Mexico City at 2:00 p.m. Flights will be operated using a 277-seat, two-class Boeing 777-200ER aircraft.


"For more than seven years, Aeromexico has been the only Latin American airline to fly to Asia. The increase in these new schedules will make it possible to meet the travel demand of the Asian market, and provide some 3,500 seats on a weekly basis for the benefit of all its customers," the airline said in a statement.

Tokyo and Shanghai are the only two Asian cities in Aeromexico's international network of 80 destinations.

4th runway ready for take-off in Pudong
Shanghai Daily
November 12, 2013

WORK has finished on the fourth runway at the Pudong International Airport, which will be put into service next year, officials with the Shanghai Airport Authority said yesterday.
What a stupid headline!
Lots of passengers (including me) are suffering from the delays and queues at the existing PVG runways.
I remembered that article and wondered why the new runway is not open, yet.

In China that usually means December 30, 2104.
