SZ’s next airport ‘not commercial’

CITY officials are planning to build an airport for general aviation, rather than a second airport for commercial flights, in a central or eastern part of the city, Shenzhen Economic Daily clarified this week, quoting a transportation official.
General aviation refers to civil aviation operations other than scheduled air services, and to nonscheduled air transport operations for remuneration or hire. It covers a large range of activities including flight training, agricultural aviation, medical rescues, light aircraft manufacturing and maintenance.
“The airport for general aviation is quite different from what expert Deng Yaoqing has suggested about building a new airport in Pingshan,” said Yang Xing, deputy director of the transportation commission’s airport department.
Deng, president of the Pan-Pearl River Delta Innovation and Development Research Institute, suggested that the city build another airport to meet the needs of the aviation industry.
Yang said it isn’t imperative to build a second airport for public, commercial air services because the new Terminal C at Shenzhen International Airport hasn’t even opened yet.
A new, general aviation airport in Shenzhen could offer some chartered flight services among Pearl River Delta cities.

This new terminal is the world's most beautiful masterpiece in terms of airport infrastructure. Can't wait to travel through that terminal one day!

Terminal A and B are decent ones, they even have metro connection. An underground APM will work well to connect them with T3.
A better option would be to build another terminal (T4) directly north of T3 and connect the two terminals via APM. T1 and T2 are being closed because are longer capable of meeting the standards in terms of passenger and freight volume. The space already exists for a new terminal and if it were a similar size to T3 or larger then the capacity would suffice for the forseenable future. Reopening T1 and T2 would be a short term fix for a long term problem.

Airport’s new terminal hosts check-in rehearsal
1 October 2013
Shenzhen Daily

A REHEARSAL was held Sunday to test Shenzhen International Airport’s ability to handle passengers checking in, departing and arriving at its new Terminal C.

More than 1,000 mock passengers and 18 flights, including four international flights, participated in the rehearsal. Most of the mock passengers were students from Shenzhen University or Shenzhen Polytechnic. The rehearsal tested the arrival and departure of passengers, from checking in to arriving and claiming luggage. Each passenger was given three pieces of luggage to test security services, ground services and the terminal’s luggage transportation system.

Airport authorities said it was the second of three rehearsals to be held between August and October, before relocation to the terminal Nov. 14.

The last rehearsal will be held later in October.

In the first rehearsal, on Aug. 16, airport authorities spotted more than 1,000 problems, big or small, that needed improvements.

“In the second rehearsal, I felt the signs at the terminal had become clearer and easier to follow,” said a Shenzhen University student surnamed Li, who also attended the first rehearsal.

The new Terminal C covers 450,000 square meters and is nearly three times the size of terminals A and B combined. It has about 200 counters, double the existing number, and 58 boarding gates.

The new, three-level Terminal C was designed by Italian-based firm Fuksas Architects and incorporates a patterned, double-skin canopy of steel and glass that allows patterned light into the building, reduces energy consumption by shielding the space from excessive solar heat and hides mechanical systems from view.

The terminal has a large check-in building with a wing-like roof on one side of a cross-shaped structure. The grand departure hall resembles a large manta ray that envelopes passengers. The hall will be bright, with light diffused through the canopy, and contains information desks, a car rental area and airline check-in counters. (Han Ximin)Mock passengers have their luggage checked during Sunday’s rehearsal at Shenzhen International Airport’s new Terminal C, which is scheduled to open at the end of the year.

from the notice to staffs, there is only one month to go before T3's operation.
Transferring work of the equipments from Terminals A and B(probably D as well but not mentioned before in any announcements) will start from 1900 on 13th of November and finishes before the morning on 14th of November. Then T3 should be opened on the same day with the closure of terminals A and B (and D?).

Then what will happen to the old terminals. Will they tear them down and build something else there. I bet they could expand or redevelop the cargo area. What will the first official flight be any one know yet or will that be a secret until the day of?

Terminal A will be transformed into a mall.
Terminal B will be stand-by to be used again or awaiting to be a mall/exhibition centre?
But in the long term plan, the current area for terminals A and B will be used for Low Cost and business flights... not sure what they will be eventually

transferring plan confirmed by government
Quote:
The day of its officially opening will be one of the days in November. (well... why no telling people?)
The day before, aircrafts, equipments and vehicles not in use on that day will start to move over at 1700.
The airport will be closed at 2200. All aircrafts and equipment will start to move over to T3.
First flight to take-off at 0800 on the opening day.
