China's Chengdu plans new $11 billion airport to ease congestion
Excerpt

BEIJING, Jan 15 (Reuters) - Chengdu, the largest city in southwest China, has received regulatory approval to build a 69.3 billion yuan ($11.2 billion) airport, the official Sichuan Daily said on Thursday, marking the country's second major airport investment in less than a year.

The new Chengdu facility will have three runways, capable of handling 40 million passengers upon its completion in 2025, according to the paper.

China is scrambling to build facilities to manage its fast-growing aviation sector, as congestion at major airports lead to endemic delays and growing passenger frustration.

*********************

Chengdu's existing Shuangliu International Airport, first built in 1938, is the fifth busiest airport in the country and serves as a hub for inland China destinations for such carriers as Air China Co Ltd, AirAisia X Bhd and Korean Air Lines Co Ltd among others.

Passenger throughput at the Shuangliu facility increased 12.8 percent to over 37 million last year, more than doubling the volume of 13.9 million in 2005. It could reach its designed capacity of 40 million as early as next year, according to some estimates.

New Chengdu Airport Named Tianfu International Airport

The new Chengdu airport has been officially named Chengdu Tianfu International Airport, according to the official Weibo account of Government Affairs Service Center of Chengdu Municipal People's Government.

The 69.26 billion yuan new airport is located in the Lujia town of Jianyang city, 51.5 kilometers away from the center of Chengdu city.

The new airport's terminal will occupy an area nearly 1.8 times of the Terminal 2 of Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport (CTU). Among all domestic airports being planned and constructed, the new regional airport will rank the second only after Beijing's new airport in terms of facility scale.

Three runways will be constructed, aiming to handle 40 million passengers, 0.7 million tonnes of mail & cargo and 320 thousand takeoffs and landings by 2025.

After its completion, Chengdu will be the third city owning two airports in China after Beijing and Shanghai.

According to a local news article the new airport will be fully connected.

到成都第二机场 只要30分钟
成都新机场获批后,前往位于资阳市芦葭镇的成都新机场,未来市民将有高速公路、城际铁路、城市轨道交通等三种出行选择,实现成都中心城区、天府新区至新机场30分钟左右可达的目标。
一条机场高速
依托《四川省高速公路网规划(2014-2030年)》,成都将新建新机场高速,从成都市中心城区出发,经新机场至资阳市,其中成都段将采取双向八车道设计,将与成都已有及在建高速公路共同形成高效畅达的“三环十三射”高速公路网络。
两条城际铁路
成都将规划建设天府新站经新机场至资阳的城际客运铁路、新机场至自贡城际客运铁路,并与许多已建成或在建的铁路网线进行有效衔接。
该规划方案有效构建了新机场、成都天府新区与全省主要城市的快速铁路运输网络,保证了新机场作为中西部门户枢纽机场和国家级国际航空枢纽的服务能力和服务水平,同时将极大促进天府新区建设,提升成都铁路枢纽地位。
三条轨道交通线
城市轨道交通系统方面,将规划建设成都南站、双流机场以及成都东站通过天府新站至新机场的轨道交通路线,即规划18号线,由成都南站引出,接入天府新站;规划19号线,由双流机场引出,接入天府新站;规划20号线,由成都东站引出,接入天府新站;再通过规划的天府新站至新机场轨道交通快线到达目的地。






(Sorry if the pictures don't load, I'm not terribly good at such things)

- It's called "Tianfu" (天府 ~ the land of abundance) because it is in Tianfu New District (天府新区) which is one of these economic zones that cities in China like to create to stimulate business.

-There will be a new inter-modal hub called New Tianfu Station (天府新站) because we need another station like a dog needs fleas. >.< (For the record; there is Chengdu Station for slow trains, Chengdu East for high-speed trains on the Hurong Line and Chengdu South for the new Cheng-Mian-Le intercity line).

-There will be a new intercity line (城际铁路) with New Tianfu Station as its hub; with branches to Shiling Station (十陵站), the Cheng-Mian-Le Line (maybe at Xinjin?) and the new airport; with the latter forking to Zigong (自贡) and Ziyang (资阳).

-A new expressway (高速公路) will join Chengdu East and the new airport; it appears a branch will go to New Tianfu Station and that it will continue onwards to Ziyang. It looks like it will be 82km long with a 19km long branch - total cost is 20.87 billion RMB.

-Three metro lines (城市轨道交通) will connect the new airport; Line 18 starts at Chengdu South goes through New Tianfu Station and terminates at the new airport, Line 19 starts at Shuangliu and terminates at New Tianfu, and Line 20 starts at Chengdu East and terminates at New Tianfu.

Kind of disappointed it won't be ready until 2025. I believe Shuangliu is already operating at capacity. Also I'm curious why they will keep Shuangliu open - I know Shanghai has pretty split their airports by domestic/international - as our int'l flight capacity isn't terribly robust.

Would have been really cool if we had gotten an airport like Daxing that could handle a hundred million people!

The news said this is the design Foster & Partners submitted for the Chengdu 2nd airport, and it was the design selected through the preliminary round. But I was not able to verify the source, meaning it is not listed on Foster & partners' website. So just to entertain everyone!

Here's the planned metro map for Chengdu up to 2020. You can see the location of the future airport in the lower right corner.

Blueprint of Chengdu New Airport Published
http://www.gochengdu.cn/news/whats-n...hed-a1604.html

Sichuan Province Airport Group announced on June 1 that it had decided on the general design plan for the second airport of Chengdu after the final round of evaluation of the bidding schemes from globally.

The chosen plan, jointly submitted by China Southwest Architectural Design and Research Institute, China Airport Construction Group Corporation and French architectural firm ADP Ingenierie, covers the overall design of the new airport and the design of terminals and features a layout that resembles the pattern of the Sunbird, the logo of Chengdu, which has a history of some 3, 000 years and represents the creativity and exploration of Sichuan people.

The judging panel of the evaluation commented that the plan was “fashionable, adaptable and preferable functionally and economically.”
Pan Gangjun, president of Sichuan Airport Group, said that the construction of the new airport is expected to start within the year. The airport is scheduled to be put into operation by 2020.

Chengdu flies high as airport breaks passenger record
17 December 2015
Shanghai Daily Excerpt

LAST week marked another milestone for Chengdu as the city’s Shuangliu International Airport recorded 40 million passenger throughputs ranking the fourth of the contury for the year as of December 10.

Altogether, some 42-million air-travel passengers are expected to pass through Chengdu’s airport for the whole of 2015, up 11 percent from the previous year and over four-fold from 2004 when total passenger traffic totaled 10 million. The throughput is expected to rank into 30th of international airports. International traffic is also on the rise, with 3.2 million foreigner travelers passing through the airport last year, up 31.9 percent year on year. It is a sign that Chengdu is moving faster on the path toward internationalization.

It took Chengdu five years to realize a passenger throughput of 20 million in 2009 from 10 million in 2004. In comparison, the capital city of China’s southwest Sichuan Province used only three years to break the 30 million records in 2012 and 40 million this year.

“Chengdu has made itself outstanding among all second-tier cities,” said Chen Zhongwei, director of Chengdu’s Port and Logistics Office. “We are moving closer to first-tier cities like Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou.”

On December 12, Chengdu opened its 85th international route to make the city connect with 71 overseas transport hubs by air, among which 41 are regular direct flights and cover Asia, North America, Europe, Middle East, Africa and Oceania. To note, some important regular direct flights, including those to San Francisco, London, Frankfurt, Paris, Melbourne, Doha, Moscow and Mauritius, has just started in the past two years as Chengdu accelerated the international route expansion in 2013.

The Sixth Plenary Session of the Chengdu Municipal Government has announced that the new Chengdu Tianfu Airport will be connected with High-Speed Rail upon opening in 2019. The new rail terminal will become the third major rail station, together with Chengdu and Chengdu East Railway Stations, with Chengdu South and Chengdu West designated as auxiliary stations. It will form part of an expanded Sichuan regional high-speed rail network, allowing connection to air travel in a similar manner to Shanghai Hongqiao.

Is there really going to be that much demand to justify a new mega airport when there already is one under construction i neighboring Chongqing? I mean the two cities are what, one hour apart by train? I get the feeling here that local politicians are more concerned by what their neighbors are doing than planning rationally.

Chongqing has a mega airport, so must Chengdu or we will be at a competitive disadvantage, is the rationale I am sensing here. it is a bit like USA in the 1970s, when over sized airports were built left to right just because otherwise they would be left in the dust because the neighboring cities would run away with all the investors.

Chongqing+Sichuan = 120 million inhabitants. They really deserve two large international airports.

Well, the question here is not really about deserving but if there is going to be enough demand to justify building the airport in the first place. If there was no alternative form of transport, sure, but there are highways and railways connecting the city to the whole region.

Population alone is not an indicator of demand, and with two huge airports next to each other, chances are, one of them is going to succeed while the other one will fail. That to me seems like a huge waste of resources.

Air NZ tipped to be eyeing China route
12 May 2016
The New Zealand Herald Excerpt

Carrier says announcement coming soon on talk of new destination

Air New Zealand has been assessing a number of Chinese cities as potential new destinations, and Chengdu is rumoured to become its next route.

The airline's Shanghai-based regional manager for Asia, Scott Carr, wouldn't confirm or deny speculation about a Chengdu service, but said: "There will probably be some news coming in the next couple of days about that."

The Centre for Aviation reported last month that representatives of the carrier and New Zealand Government had met with Chengdu's vice-mayor to discuss a direct flight between the capital of the southwestern Sichuan province and Auckland.

The route - at 10,505km - would be slightly longer than Auckland to Los Angeles, according to the report.

Air New Zealand already has daily flights to Shanghai, while Air China operates a Beijing to Auckland service in alliance with the Kiwi carrier.

The Auckland-based airline has recently announced new services to Vietnam's Ho Chi Minh City and Manila in the Philippines.

In addition to Chengdu, Carr said Air New Zealand had been eyeing Chinese cities including Chongqing, Wuhan, Wenzhou and Shenzhen.

Construction starts at Chengdu airport





CONSTRUCTION of a second airport in Chengdu, capital of southwest China’s Sichuan Province, got under way yesterday.

The first phase of construction is expected to be completed in 2019. Once fully operational, Chengdu will be only the third Chinese city, after Beijing and Shanghai, with two airports.

The new facility, which will be located in Jianyang, 50 kilometers southeast of downtown Chengdu, is estimated to cost more than 70 billion yuan (US$10.7 billion).

The 126-hectare site will include six runways, six terminals and is expected to welcome 90 million passengers a year, according to Dai Yongbo, deputy director of the provincial development and reform commission, adding that passenger throughput is expected to surpass the capacity of Chengdu’s current airport by 2020.
