Shenzhen ups the ante in air travel race
13 April 2016
China Daily Excerpt

Booming outbound travel on the Chinese mainland and the resulting expansion of major airlines to cope with demand has put Hong Kong in a tight spot as Shenzhen raised the stakes in the race with upgraded airport facilities and lower fares.

Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) had traditionally been the first choice of Guangdong province residents in taking cheaper international flights, but Shenzhen Bao'an International Airport is offering more cost-efficient alternatives for mainland air travelers.

Commuters now only have to fork out 3,752 yuan ($579) for a one-way flight to Sydney on China Southern Airlines from Shenzhen, compared with 4,541 yuan for a flight to the Australian city from Hong Kong on Cathay Pacific Airways - the SAR's flagship carrier.

China Southern Airlines launched the new route in January this year - Shenzhen's first direct flight to the Oceania. It also started flights to Dubai via Wuhan, capital of Hubei province.

In February, Air China linked Shenzhen with Los Angeles in the US for the first time, and the airline plans to start a direct route to Los Angeles in October this year following the launch of services to Frankfurt in Germany next month.

In the second half of this year, more mainland air carriers, including Xiamen Airlines and Hainan Airlines, will operate flights from Shenzhen to destinations worldwide, including Seattle and Auckland.

A series of "first flights", however, had shown the weakness of Shenzhen airport in international routes in the past. Last year, Bao'an Airport received 1.66 million passengers from 16 international routes, accounting for only 4 percent of the total number.

For 2016, industry experts believe Shenzhen will see its position beefed up with local air travel demand rising at a remarkable rate.

Under the nation's 13th Five-Year Plan (2016-2020), Shenzhen was tagged as an international aviation hub and its airport sees "Internationalism" as one of its development strategies in the next five years.

The airport aims to attract 5.5 million passengers on international routes this year - about 10 percent of the total number - focusing on business flights and high-end travel.

China Southern has stated that the average attendance of its SZX-SYD route is 62%, which is higher than expectation. They are planning to make their service daily. They are trying to make Shenzhen another hub for the connection between Australia and China, alongside with Canton.

To open SZX - MEL route is under consideration by China Southern. They will be competing with Air China's daily service, which has been published, starting from October.

Perth is also the next potential new destination from SZX by China Southern.

so does that mean at 62%, they are already making a profit (should they expand on flights)?

I would like to see China Eastern coming to Perth though i just don't know what the demand for eastern/northern china is. (maybe to connect to taiwan and japan/korea as well)?

Slots at SZX is demanding... and a daily service on a route would be a much better choice for business and connections etc...

If China southern can offer sub $600 tickets to shenzhen (plus free visa within szn city) then it will surely rival cathay for pax into HK

Perth? That sounds a little bit overly optimistic.

This is interesting news for the former Shenzhen Airport terminals.

Old terminals to become car center
Shenzhen Daily
SD-Agencies

UNUSED Shenzhen airport terminals will be reconstructed into a complex to display and sell automobiles. The reconstruction work on Terminal A and B will start today, the Shenzhen Economic Daily reported.

The complex will launch trial operations within the year with car dealers, commercial stores, entertainment and other services.

Covering an area of 320,000 square meters, the shopping mall is going to be China’s largest automobile-themed complex.

“The old terminals will be transformed into the largest wholesale center, exhibition center and experience zone for cars in China and even Asia,” said Zhao Runtao, the CEO of the complex.

Zhao said that airports were turned into shopping malls in China before, but it is the first time for a terminal to be built into an automobile-themed shopping mall.

“Terminal A will be the center of automobile culture, while Terminal B will provide areas to let visitors experience cars and the outdoor area will be used for test driving,” said Zhao.

The automobile hub will include car sales, test driving, and cross-border e-commerce. “We want to bring the authentic experience of owning a car to all men, women and even children,” said Zhao.

The complex has already signed deals with 14 automobile industry giants. The area will bring in shows and exhibitions of cars on a frequent basis, said Zhao.

Terminal A and B of Shenzhen International Airport were built in 1989 and closed in November 2013.

The airport authority called for a public bid to rent the two buildings in 2015. After rounds of bidding, a Shenzhen-based car dealer and automobile technology company won tenancy rights for 15 years.

An existing military airbase in the east of Shenzhen and near Huizhou?

That would make it the Huizhou Pingtan Airport which is already operating, with admittedly only a few flights. There are no other military airbases in the region, especially ones capable of handling commercial flights. So maybe this airport is slated for an upgrade.

Should commuter railways be built to connect Pingtan Airport with Huizhou, Shenzhen and Dongguan?

Line 11 opened on the 28th of June, 2016 at 11:18am. Of more interest for passengers who are airport bound on domestic services can use Self-Check In Kiosks at 4 Metro stations. These are Futian, Chegongmiao, Houhai and Qianhaiwan stations. It is for all airlines, except the low-cost carrier Spring Airlines, with Shenzhen and China Southern airlines having their own specific kiosks. It is for check-in only, so passengers will still need to carry their luggage on the train to use the Baggage Drop Kiosks at the terminal.
