News in Chinese: http://www.sznews.com/news/content/2...t_12423196.htm

Immigration and Custom Checkpoint will start to open 24 hours from mid November, which would allow more slots to serve international flights. (currently, the Immigration and Custom Checkpoints open from 07:00-02:00+1 everyday.)

And further works for land reclamation will start soon, in preparation for the construction of T3 Satellite Concourse and the third runway.

Shenzhen Airport is also planning to be one of the next airport to join the 72-hour Transit Visa Free scheme.

Fewer Flight Delays Expected at Shenzhen Airport After Both Runways Available for Takeoffs

http://www.wcarn.com/news/48/48794.html

By Joy Wong, WCARN.com | Nov. 12, 2015


A Shenzhen Airlines flight (ZH9839) and a China Southern Airlines flight (CZ3568) simultaneously took off on Runway 34 and Runway 33 at Shenzhen Bao'an International Airport at 7:11 a.m. Thursday morning, marking a significant milestone for the airport.

The airport Thursday officially started a trial of independent takeoffs on both runways and visual approach. The airport's two-runway operation has been optimized from one runway for takeoff and the other for landing to simultaneous takeoff on both runways and spaced approach.

The move will lift the airport's hourly flight caps to 55, increasing more flight slots at the airport and significantly improving the airport's efficiency.

Fewer flight delays are expected at the airport in the future. The airport allows takeoff on the two runways at the same time at 7:00 a.m.-9:00 a.m., which will increase the efficiency of departures and improve the on-time performance of morning flights departing from the airport and their following segments.

In addition, the action will improve the efficiency of the airport's two-runway operation and increase the airport's capacity, laying a solid foundation for the development of the airport's international business.

The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) has approved Shenzhen airport to lift its flight caps to 55 per hour from the current 48, allowing the airport to offer more takeoff and landing slots for airlines.

Moreover, Shenzhen Airport Tuesday officially started the around-the-clock customs clearance, which enables the airport to accommodate more international routes and increase the frequency of existing routes by making full use of night hours.

China Southern said it will launch two international services from Shenzhen to Sydney and Dubai in Jan. 2016. Shenzhen Airlines will launch a nonstop service from Shenzhen to Tokyo during the 2016 New Year and plans to launch flights to Kuala Lumpur and Ho Chi Minh City.

Data shows that Shenzhen Airport operates 13 international routes, offering 290 international flights weekly to Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Krabi, Sabah, Ho Chi Minh City, Bali, Seoul, Jeju, Osaka, Ibaraki, Mauritius, etc. In Jan.-Sep. 2015, the airport served more than 1.22 million international passengers, an increase of 40% from the same period a year earlier.

According to the airport's plan, the passenger numbers are expected to reach 55 million by 2020, with 10% or 5.5 million to be international (regional) passengers.

In the future, the airport will launch flight services to regions and countries along "the Belt & Road", and fulfill the absence of European and North American flights departing from Shenzhen, aiming to develop into an international hub airport in southeast China.

Shenzhen ups the ante with airport lift
1 March 2016
China Daily Excerpt

Shenzhen has raised the stakes in its effort to win back mainland travelers who have been patronizing Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) for cheaper international flights.

And, experts say the delay in the construction of a third runway at HKIA is allowing airports in the Pearl River Delta (PRD) region to catch up with the SAR.

Shenzhen's metro operator - Shenzhen Metro Group - is expected to give a big lift to a Shenzhen Bao'an International Airport with the scheduled opening in June of Line 11, which will link up the city center and neighboring cities with the airport and offer the most advanced carriages and top-end services.

The new metro line has a planned route of 51.9 kilometers with 17 stations, and a maximum speed of up to 120 kilometers per hour.

It will have eight cars, including two first-class carriages designed for airport passengers. It will be the first of its kind in the mainland's subway system, featuring transverse seating and luggage racks, but passengers need to pay a premium for first-class tickets.

The maximum capacity of the eight cars is 2,564 and it's expected to take only half an hour to get to the airport from downtown. Shenzhen Metro plans to invest 2 billion yuan ($310 million) in 33 car sets costing 7.75 million yuan each.

A section of the route - from Bihai Station to Airport Station - will offer passengers spectacular sea views.

Experts say Line 11, which will link the downtown Futian district with Nanshan and the Qianhai Free Trade Zone, will greatly complement Shenzhen airport's existing transportation network.

For years, Shenzhen residents have been using HKIA to take advantage of cheaper international flights, and Shenzhen airport is now striving to win them back as HKIA reaches saturation point.

"The long construction cycle for HKIA's third runway has enabled airports in the region to catch up," said Zheng Tianxiang, professor at the Center for Studies of Hong Kong, Macao and the Pearl River Delta at Sun Yat-sen University in Guangzhou.

Last year, Shenzhen Airport received 1.66 million passengers from international routes, accounting for only 4 percent of the overall number of travelers. It now expects the number of passengers it handles to reach 55 million, 10 percent of whom will be on international routes.

Zheng, however, reckoned that it won't be smooth sailing for Shenzhen, and advised the city to cover new destinations along the Belt and Road route, such as Southeast Asia, the Middle East and South Asia, while HKIA's advantage lies in international routes to Europe and America.

Moreover, the market will also expand to neighboring cities as Shenzhen Metro's Line 11 will be extended to Dongguan.

At a meeting of officials from Shenzhen, Dongguan, Huizhou, Shanwei and Heyuan on Feb 18, the proposal to connect Line 11 with Dongguan Metro's Line 3 was approved. At the same time, it was also decided to link up Shenzhen with Huizhou via a subway.

Yea if they want to compete with Hong Kong maybe they should have a bar or serve alcohol in the Terminal after security. There is no alcohol after security in the new SZX, and the same crappy overpriced noodle shops that you find in Fuzhou or Taiyuan airport. Sure the terminal building is beautiful, but you have to fill it with nice stuff if you want people to like it.

In Mainland China only Shanghai Hongqiao is worth a crap. Nice resturants and cheap places to booze before the flight.

I hated Hongqiao, it was so old and almost empty beyond security. Could have been because I was in the international terminal though.

don't think the operator of SZX is treating the new terminal different from the old ones. they may not be aware that the new terminal has been a lot more 'international' than before, and is serving more passengers and more international destinations. shame on the world-class architecture but chinese-level service.

What do you mean by Chinese-level service? You should not equate Chinese-level service with low level service.

Chinese-level service are among the highest in the world. Sure, there is a difference between domestic terminal and international terminal, but in both cases they are still services offered within Chinese airports.

i did not equate 'chinese-level' as 'low-level', but you did indicate that
fyi there is only one terminal in SZX
and the services in SZX is obviously not at an international airport standard
the people run the airport still think they are just a major airport in China and services to international passengers can be ignored
-
for example in SZX you cannot amend your journey(i.e. change to another one once it has been delayed or cancelled) at boarding gates or after security check. you have to go out to the check-in counter to reschedule then go through the security again. and this is commonly applied to almost all other chinese airports except PEK as far as i know
that's what i called chinese-level service - they are only considering the easiest way to manage the airport, not really servicing for passengers' good
