Although HKG and CAN may offer more international destinations, SZX does get the job done. I just flew there last month and had a great arrival. Unfortunately it was night so I couldn't really see the new terminal but I'll definitely be getting to it later this year. Even residents from HK will go to SZX for the cheaper flights.

What about direct rail link betweek HK Airport and Shenzhen airport?

Realistically these airports should not be looked at as separate competing airports of different cities but rather as airports serving one big region in order to satisfy growing demand. Three big international airports for a region like Guangdong with 100+ million population is by no means too much. It's considerably bigger than Germany! London on its own has four large international airports (not to mention smaller ones of which there are two) and any of the three major cities in the PRD region are larger while there certainly won't be shortage of transit passengers either be it China or some other countries.

They've thought about this but the focus now is to link up Kowloon with the high-speed rail network in China. The line is now being extended from Shenzhen Futian into Kowloon.

Linking up to Shenzhen airport will spell the end for Cathay Pacific / Dragonair. If people are forced to connect to another airport and spend time crossing a border to do so, they will just connect in Seoul or Beijing going forward. From a strategic perspective, this link will not work.

Hong Kong should not make the same mistake as many other large cities have done with multiple airports scattered around, making transits very difficult to do. The current airport has capacity to expand, and expansion should be the first priority, with people transitting under one roof.

Remember, this is a Shenzhen Bao'an Airport thread .

Bao'an will take some of HK airport's business and growth ( that's not up to HK to decide )... but I think HK airport will have no problem prospering because of HK's attractions and uniqueness.

the planned Hong Kong-Shenzhen West Rail was the idea of transporting passengers between two airports and cooperating
but plan now is not hopeful
although the Guangdong Government is now quite interested in connect the HK-SZ West Rail with Guangzhou-Dongguan-Shenzhen Intercity Rail
Guangzhou-Dongguan-Shenzhen Intercity Rail goes from Guangzhou Airport to Shenzhen Airport, And Hong Kong-Shenzhen West Rail goes from Shenzhen Airport to Hong Kong Airport with a branch from Qianhai(Shenzhen) to Hung Shui Kiu(Hong Kong)

Railways link to airport will definitely help with growing but Hong Kong is still undecided if linking to two other competitive airports will do......

Airport fined for expansion violations
2013-January-10 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

SHENZHEN International Airport has been fined 200,000 yuan (US$32,118) and ordered to suspend work on an expansion of its future Terminal 3 and runway extensions.

The airport started construction of the expansion and extension projects before receiving approval from environmental protection authorities, the Ministry of Environmental Protection said online Tuesday.

The fine is the largest that environmental authorities could legally impose in the applicable category of violations, officials said.

Airport officials told Shenzhen Daily yesterday that they are rectifying the situation according to the letter of punishment, but didn’t say whether the punishment would affect the projects.

The airport’s environmental impact report said Terminal 3 is designed with a capacity of 30 million passengers a year. The terminal’s main building was expanded from 350,000 square meters to 450,000 square meters, however, and two 3,400-meter runways were each extended 200 meters northward to accommodate future use of A380 airbuses.

The Shenzhen airport started construction of Terminal 3 in February 2009, before receiving approval for the expansion projects.

The terminal’s main building is nearing completion and scheduled to open this year. According to an airport employee who declined to be named, the airport and related government agencies are taking measures to remedy the situation and communicating with environmental authorities, with Terminal 3 planned to open as scheduled.

I flew out of Shenzen today and had a nice view ofthe new T-3. It is quite a architectural wonder. It will be quite a change from using Terminals A&B.

Airport posts lost items list
2013-January-25 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

PASSENGERS who have lost belongings at Shenzhen International Airport can now search for them online, through a new Chinese-language service on the airport’s official website, www.szairport.com.

While the site has an English-language version, the lost-and-found feature is only available on the site’s Chinese-language version, through the green “lost items” icon at the bottom of the home page. Clicking the icon leads to an explanation of procedures and a link to a list of lost items.

The airport handles about 80,000 passengers a day and people sometimes leave items, including luggage, in waiting halls. In December alone, airport staff collected 363 lost items including umbrellas, clothing, tea cups, paintings, mobile phones, computers, jewelry, bank cards and cash.

The online service lists lost items by date, with brief descriptions. The list is updated daily and has added 251 items this month, airport staff said.

Information won’t be posted for lost fruit, vegetables, seafood or other perishable items. Owners of such goods can call 2345-2663 to inquire. People can claim lost items with ID cards or passports, and can commission others to claim them.

The airport expects to handle about 90,000 passengers a day during the peak of the upcoming Spring Festival holiday.

That was changed, because it rhymes with Huang quan, which means "yellow spring", which means "hell". Some Party bureaucrats were concerned this inauspicious name was negatively affecting passenger usage, hence the name change.

Very interesting. Is the area of the airport Huangtian? I wonder why they came up with the name in the first place.
