Not having been to the new terminal at PEK, I have to say that the new terminal at Pudong is very, very nice. I much prefer it to those of SIN and HKG for example. It is very underrated, but it could use some better retail options.

Some people like the carpeting used in the boarding area in Pudong T2.

I just saw a report on tv that this project is being finished at lightning speed. Construction takes place 24/7 including any and all holidays with over 20,000 workers. Amazing....

It is not a new airport, it is Hongqiao Airport that is being renovated and expanded.

The question is whether the existing Hongqiao airport terminal will be closed when the new terminal opens.

No! The old terminal will be renovated, and used for mainly int'l airlines for Japan and South Korea, with the existing immigration check facilities there...

The new terminal is also deisigned and will be able to serve int'l airlines when necessary...

BTW, Shanghai Airport group has setup a JV with Hong Kong Airport authority to operate the Hongqiao Airport in the next 20 years!

Shanghai, HK set up JV to manage Hongqiao Airport
Published: 12 Oct 2009 22:19:04 PST

Oct. 13, 2009 (China Knowledge) - Airport authorities in Shanghai and Hong Kong signed a cooperation agreement on Monday to establish a joint venture to manage Hongqiao International Airport, sources reported.

Shanghai Airport Authority has agreed to invest RMB 51 million for a 51% stake in the JV, while Airport Authority Hong Kong will hold the remaining 49% for RMB 49 million.

The Shanghai Hong Kong Airport Management Co, which will operate for 20 years from next year, is expected to help operate the east and west terminals of Hongqiao Airport, the east traffic control centre of Hongqiao's integrated transport centre and manage passenger-related issues.

The new western terminal is set to be completed next year and will have links to the new transport hub in the Hongqiao area. Upon the completion of the expansion project, Shanghai will have four air terminals and five runways for a combined capacity of 90 million passenger trips and 5.2 million tons of cargo.

In 2008, Hongqiao airport handled 22.9 million passengers, making it the fourth busiest airport in the country.

Putong International Airport is the other airport in the city.

Are there any updates on the new Hongqiao Terminal (subway, railway, airport). I'm suprised that a project this massive has so little coverage, is it because of the location?

Interior decorations on time at airport

By Jessie Dong | 2009-10-30 | NEWSPAPER EDITION

MAIN interior decorations for Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport's new major terminal building were completed yesterday, right in time for its scheduled opening in March, said its operator.

Shanghai Airport Authority said light gray has been used as the main color to decorate the inside of the new western terminal.

The neutral color is intended to make guidance and instructional signs more prominent, explained airport official Su Weiwei.

She said areas for different functions, such as check-in, and places near escalators were given different patterns and colored floor pavings to make it easier for travelers to find their way.

The four-level building has a 270-meter main hall and a 1,740-meter long boarding zone.

Passengers will only have to follow a straight route for check-in and boarding.

They'll have a shorter walk, compared to the current terminal building, according to the airport manager.

Seats and security systems are now being installed, and test running of the whole building should start in December.

The western terminal is to become the main passenger building for Hongqiao airport when it opens in March next year.

Hongqiao airport serves as the city's main domestic-flight terminal, with the Pudong International Airport handling mostly international trips.

A new, second runway is to go into operation the same time as the new terminal building, airport officials said.
