I may have said that somewhere before but that is going to be the most amazing airport terminal ever built. It is simply out of this world!

It does look a little bit dark, but hopefully once it's operational there'll be better lighting..

Truly an architectural gem though.

The government spent 15 million USD on the design alone.

I have been inside the terminal and saw the whole thing first hand. It is truly amazing. My head was facing upwards the entire time, one simply cannot stop staring at the ceiling. It is done in a way that, at any given spot that you stand in the terminal, the ceiling will appear to have a different shape, different curves and different patterns, depending on where you are. It will be a sight to behold when it opens!

Is there such a plan? I though T3 long-term plan is set till 2030 which is plenty of time. The T3 long-term plan should see the extention of the current structure adding more capacity.

there is no more extension for T3. instead a T4 will be built.
they are closing up the old terminals A,B and D
there will only be one terminal for shenzhen airport for a while after T3 opened
a 'T4/airport north' station has been added for the metro airport line and is under construction now
some news said T4 and third runway will start to construction in 2015 and finished before 2020

Terminal C to alter airport use
2013-February-22 08:53 Shenzhen Daily
Han Ximin

[email protected]

WHEN Shenzhen International Airport opens its new Terminal C, slated for the latter half of this year, most passengers will no longer have a use for terminals A and B.

The airport’s current two terminals will be used for purposes other than major airline travel after Terminal C opens, but airport officials didn’t specify further. Previous media reports have speculated that the terminals could be renovated into exhibition centers.

The 450,000-square-meter Terminal C will offer 65 berths, 14 long-distance berths and 208 boarding counters. The airport’s yearly passenger capacity is designed to reach 45 million by 2020.

Chengdu’s airport surpassed Shenzhen’s airport in 2011 to have the fourth-largest passenger turnover in China. Shenzhen’s airport handled 29 million passengers in 2012, but officials say its growth has been bottlenecked by terminals A and B.

To facilitate use of Terminal C, the 4.5-kilometer, east-west Jichang South Road will be built into the major link between Terminal C, Bao’an Boulevard and National Highway 107. The road will end at the Hezhou Flyover on the Guangzhou-Shenzhen Expressway. Roadwork is expected to end in June and the road should be open by August, according to transportation officials.

The opening of Terminal C is one of 111 projects that local government is planning to complete this year.

Other projects involve education, health care, housing, social security, food safety, transportation, culture, public security and more.

Shenzhen will expand schools’ enrollment capacity by 23,000 this year, and 60 percent of community clinics will implement home services.

The city also will make about 10,000 bikes available for public rental and introduce 100 cabs for people with disabilities.

Shenzhen Airport Allowed to Increase Aircraft Handling Capacity

By June Ye, WCARN.com | Feb. 25, 2013

Shenzhen Bao'an International Airport (SZX) has recently got the approval from CAAC (Civil Aviation Administration of China ) to increase its aircraft handling capacity, reported by Shenzhen Special Zone Daily.

The report says, starting from Mar. 31, the maximum aircraft movements at SZX during peak hour will be increased to 40 movements per hour from the current 38 per hour. In addition, the flight movements at SZX will be further increased after the new terminal T3 and the new air traffic control tower are put into operation. The airport is expected to witness an increase of 10,000 take-offs and landings for the whole year in 2013.

The addition to the aircraft movement capacity will allow the airport to make full use of its aviation resource, especially after its new terminal is put into operation, as well as create favorable conditions for aviation business' rapid and healthy development at SZX.

At present, Shenzhen airport is busy assisting the target airlines to apply for the flight slots. For example, the airport is aiding Shenzhen Airlines Ltd. (ZH) to open more routes to Southeast Asia, helping SilkAir (Singapore) Private Limited (MI) increase the flight frequency to Singapore, and assisting Tibet Airlines (TV) to launch Shenzhen-Chengdu-Lhasa route. The airport is striving to enhance its accessibility and increase the market share of its international flights.
