It won't as along as the following assumptions hold

1. China continues to rely on railway transportation as its backbone for domestic travel.

2. the USA continues the current trend of relying on cars for short-> medium ranged domestic travel and flights for medium -> long ranged domestic travel.


On the otherhand, if Obama comes through with his HSR promise and start building trains like they did the Interstate system back in the 50s, we will see a decrease usage from current levels at major US airports and Chinese airports will surly overtake them simply due to their overwhelming number of people.

I have my eyes set on Shanghai. Hongqiao is about to open a huge rail-airport-bus terminal. The potential is quite big although Hongqiao is mostly a domestic airport now.

isn't domestic travel the biggest source of growth anyway?

BTW I couldn't find any good renderings or photos of HongQiao expansion. Anyone seen those?? Big renderings of it that used to be in teh Beijing South Railway station had also been removed...

Any growth in SHA as a result of the new rail/air/bus terminal will by definition come at the expense of other airports in the Yangtze Delta: Wuxi, Changzhou today, and if Hongqiao becomes like Haneda in acquiring international flights, Nanjing, Hangzhou, etc will also suffer. Personally I think the Pudong maglev should be converted into regular high speed rail and extended to Hongqiao. This could well drive a stake through all the small airports in the region.

Chengdu gained more than 5 million passengers in 2009. Amazing!

May not be that impressive, given that the 2008 figures were influenced by the May earthquake which seriously affected travel to Sichuan.

In 2008 Chengdu gained 7.1%, more or less the average for other Chinese airports.

Actually it is MEX, GRU, BOG, CGH (São Paulo Congonhas Airport) and BSB.

Then there is GIG and CUN before EZE.
