What's the rationale behind putting the second runway so far from the first? There appears to be enough room, after using imminent domain of course, to place a second runway parallel to the first, albeit in moved a couple hundred meters "up" or northwest.

There are urban areas to the northwest, so there is not sufficient space to build the runway there.

some updates
Jetways are all installed, ATC tower is being built still... some information suggests it will be open to the passengers in August, 2012, MU/China Eastern will be the first to move, CA/Air China will also move to T2 and take a large area of it. 3U/Sichuan Airlines will remain its operations in Terminal 1 as well as all the international departures.
There will be some official announcement soon I reckon...

Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport and Melbourne Airport Signs Sister Airport Agreement
(Official PR, May 21)


Quote:
On April 13, the General Manager of Chengdu Shangliu International Airport Mr. Yangtaidong and CEO of Melbourne Airport Mr. Chris Woodruff signs the Sister Airport Agreement.

Chengdu airport is the largest aviation hub in Central and Western China. In recent years, it develops rapidly with improving infrastructure and route network as well as the passenger throughput. In 2011, passenger throughput went up to fifth in mainland China, and among the top 50 in the world. At present, Chengdu airport commits to create the fourth state-level international aviation hub, and enters into a new round of rapid development period.

Melbourne airport is the second busiest airport in Australia, with advanced hardware facilities, developed route network and outstanding air cargo development. It has also won many Awards by International Air Transport Association, four star airport rated by Skytrax. It is an important aviation hub in Asia-Pacific region.

After being the sister airport, Chengdu airport and Melbourne airport could learn from each other. It will produce positive effect to the opening of direct flight between Chengdu and Melbourne as soon as possible and stimulate economic and trade exchanges between Western China and Australia, as well as the Australian consulate setting in Chengdu.

@sidney_jec:

Quote:
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.

Air France-KLM eyes Asia amid losses in Europe
(WCARN.com, June 20)


Quote:
The booming Asia-Pacific market is offering a ray of sunshine for Air France-KLM, Europe's largest airline group by revenue, as it grapples with the eurozone debt crisis.


While the situation in Europe remains difficult for the airline industry, the Franco-Dutch carrier is looking to emerging markets as a source of fast growth that could help compensate for its losses in Europe.



Marnix Fruitema, senior vice-president of Air France-KLM for Asia-Pacific, said the airline "will continue to see double-digit growth in the Asia-Pacific".



Air France-KLM reported revenue of EUR5.7 billion (US$7.6 billion) in the first quarter of this year. However, the company suffered a worse-than-expected operating loss of EUR597 million during the period, compared to EUR403 million in the same period last year.



"Despite the dark clouds in Europe, we see a ray of sunshine in the Asia-Pacific that has strong growth potential," Fruitema said.



One of the fastest-growing traffic streams of Air France-KLM is its flights between China and Latin America, thanks to active business and investment activities between the two regions, according to Fruitema.



While battling surging fuel, labor, distribution and airport costs, Fruitema said the airline will continue investing in key markets and will explore opportunities to add more destinations in China.



Intensifying partnerships with Chinese airlines and growing the airline's overall capacity are essential to ensure growth in the Chinese market, he said.



In the meantime, Air France-KLM is also boosting its effort to improve services and ground products by hiring Chinese-speaking employees and offering the Chinese language on airports' self check-in machines, and a Chinese entertainment program on board.



KLM recently named its Boeing 777-300 aircraft after the Wolong National Nature Reserve in Southwest China's Sichuan province. The move illustrated the growth potential the airline sees in second-tier Chinese cities such as Chengdu, capital of Sichuan.



Growth in emerging economies is the most important part of KLM's international business, KLM President and CEO Peter Hartman said, adding that China will evolve into KLM's largest international market in five years.



The Franco-Dutch airline group is currently serving nine destinations in China, and it was the first European airline to offer direct flights between Wuhan, capital of Hubei province, and Europe in April.



The International Air Transport Association recently predicted that the global airline business will make just US$3 billion in profits this year, while European carriers are expected to suffer losses of US$1.1 billion.



Industry analysts said that European airlines will need to double their revenues in emerging economies in order to offset their losses in developed markets.

CTU signs cooperation memorandum with TPE
(WCARN.com, July 10)


Quote:
Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport (CTU) formally signed cooperation memorandum with Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport (TPE) on July 6, 2012. TPE is the sixth cooperating airport with whom CTU signs memorandum after it has done so with Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport, Singapore Changi Airport, Tokyo International Airport, and Melbourne Airport. The cross-regional cooperation between the airports from two regions will exert positive impacts on promoting cooperation and accelerating common developments.

CTU is the fifth largest airport in mainland China. In 2011, the airport's overall passenger throughput reached 29.074 million. Meanwhile, the cargo & mail traffic throughput reached 477.7 thousand tons. CTU now ranks the first among airports in Midwest China and the 47th in the world. At present, CTU is the base hub for four airlines including Air China Southwest Branch, Sichuan Airlines, China Eastern Airlines Sichuan Branch and Chengdu Airlines.

TPE is the largest and busiest airport in Taiwan with two runways and two terminals. It is an important air hub in the Asia-Pacific region with advanced facilities, complete service functions and intensive air network. TPE handled 24.948 million passengers in the year of 2011 and ranked 56th among all airports in the world.

CTU becomes China's 5th busiest airport
(WCARN.com, July 11)

Quote:
According to the statistics from Sichuan Airport Group Company, in the first six months of 2012, Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport (CTU) handled altogether 124,567 aircraft movements, 15,53 million passengers, and 235,231 tonnes of cargo and mail, up 10.0%, 8.3%, and 4.6% respectively over the same period last year.

In June alone, 20,946 take-offs and landings were handled, a year-on-year growth of 9.4%; passenger throughput climbed by 6.5% to 2,63 million, while cargo and mail volume rose 2.9% to 37,669 tonnes.


CTU Ranks No. 5 in Terms of Growth Rate of Passenger and Cargo Volume in H1 2012


Affected by the weak macro-economic conditions in China, the growth of demand in aviation market has slowed down compared with the past years. In the first half of 2012, the passenger volume of CTU jumped by 9.1% to 14.98 million, taking the fifth place across the country, 470,000 more than that of Shenzhen Bao'an International Airport (SZX). On the cargo side, CTU also ranked No. 5 with a year-on-year growth rate of 5.3%, or 230,000 tonnes of cargo and mail.
