Airport subway for terminals
October 10, 2015
Shanghai Daily Excerpt

SHANGHAI Airport Authority yesterday started taking bids for the construction of an underground subway to connect the two terminal buildings with new satellite terminals at the Pudong International Airport.

As per the plan, the west line will link Terminal 1 with Satellite 1 and the east line will connect T2 and S2.

The subway project is expected to be completed by the end of 2018. Construction is scheduled to begin in November on the two satellite terminal buildings that will cover a total of 500,000 square meters. They are scheduled to open in 2019.

Passengers will be able to check in at one of the two existing terminal buildings and then take the subway to get to the new facility, said Li Derun, president of the Shanghai Airport Authority.

With 119 departure gates, the third terminal will be the largest of its kind in the world, the airport authority said.

There are also plans to build around 1,000 accommodation rooms in the terminals.

Spread over 120,000 square meters, the rooms will offer a place for passengers to rest. The public area will have a reception hall, restaurants, meeting room, gymnasium and shops.

By 2020, after renovations and new additions, the Pudong airport will be able to handle 80 million passengers and 4.7 million tons of cargo per year.

By third terminal I assume the article means S1 and S2? Half a million square meters combined 119 departure gates? Does that sound right?

Shanghai Airport's profit growth slows
Excerpt

HONG KONG, Oct 27 (Reuters) - Shanghai International Airport Co Ltd, China's biggest airport by market value, posted its slowest quarterly growth in profits in a year on Tuesday, due to competition from other modes of transport and a weakening economy.

The airport operator's third-quarter net profit came in at 633.05 million yuan ($99.67 million), up 15 percent on a year ago and the slowest pace in growth since the July-September period in 2014 when it recorded a 3.5 percent decline.

Nine-month net profits for the airport operator, which has a market capitalisation of around $8.92 billion, rose 21.9 percent to 1.9 billion yuan, it said in a filing on the Shanghai stock exchange on Tuesday.

Even though more Chinese have been travelling by plane as incomes increase in recent years, air travel has also faced competition from cheaper modes of transport, such as bullet trains, buses and cars.

China's slowing economic growth has also depressed travel demand, especially for overseas trips.

15% growth in a 'slow' year would make most airport owners cry. The bullet trains out of Shanghai are very busy nowadays and there are a hell of a lot of routes.

MAN SETS OFF EXPLOSIVES AT SHANGHAI AIRPORT, INJURING 4
Shenzhen Daily
13 June 2016


A bomb disposal expert checks luggage near the blast site at Terminal 2 in Shanghai’s Pudong International Airport yesterday.SD-Agencies
A MAN set off homemade explosives at Terminal 2 in Pudong International Airport in Shanghai and then attempted to commit suicide, police said yesterday.

The man, who is not identified and in his 30s, is now in a critical condition. The blast also injured four other passengers.

According to police, the explosives were inside a beer bottle. The man took out the bottle from his backpack, ignited the lead and threw it near the Thai Airways check-in counter at 2:26 p.m.

The bottle exploded and its flying fragments injured other passengers at the check-in counter at the airport.

The injured included a 53-year-old man from the Philippines, and two Chinese nationals — a 67-year-old man and a 64-year-old woman. They sustained injuries to their heads, hands, legs and buttocks, the hospital said.

After the blast, the man took out a knife from the backpack and slashed his own throat, police said.

He was rushed to the Pudong New Area People’s Hospital at about 3 p.m. The hospital said the vein in his neck was cut. Doctors at the hospital carried out emergency surgery. He will remain in the intensive care unit, the hospital said.

Authorities have raised the security level at the Pudong airport. Passengers and their luggage will be screened and inspected before they enter the terminal buildings.

A surveillance video camera at T2 showed travelers waiting in line to check in when a blast went off causing panic in the area.
