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.
Took it last Friday, July 1st. A fast and convenient way (finally) to get to the airport .

Thanks @ bearb for sharing the design entries.
Coincidentally, I just received my copy of a picture book about the original Bao'an terminal. Among other things, it states that the original winning architect (Fuksas) was also asked to provide a design for two linear satellite concourses, one to be put in service in 2035 and the second in 2045...

So, this is yet another airport that does not expand in accordance with the original master plan scheme - like ICN, HKG, PVG, KUL. Note to any aspiring airport designers: just design a terminal for the dimensions which are being required *now* and leave the spaces for expansion blank because someone else will win the expansion design contest and do something completely different !

yes the original plan was keeping Terminals A & B and this new-ish Terminal 3 with its two satellite concourse in operation.

but they closed terminals A and B due to the consideration of maximising the use of both runways, as both old Terminals were on the far side of one runway and aircrafts needs to cut through the runway to get to the terminals.

then the plan has been change to use this new-ish so-called Terminal 3 only for now, and to build another terminal(so-called Terminal 4), with one shared satellite concourse(domestic flights only) in between the two terminals. so all terminal and concourse buildings will be sat between two parallel runways.

So the next step will be to build this satellite concourse first, then the other new terminal. all three buildings will be linked with APM trains after security check.

The New Terminal '4' is designed to be smaller than the existing one.

Aedas wins design competition for the satellite

As per their own press release of Nov 21st, 2016
http://aedas.com/en/news-and-media/e...port-buildings

the design described as Entry 3 upthread has won the design competition for the satellite.
My opinion is that this entry is the design which most boldly throws retail and food concessions into the face of everyone coming up from the people mover station. The Arup design (Entry 2) was much more respecting of the original terminal architecture, and also won the most approval on the original gaoloumi (Chinese) site where it was posted...

New airport infrastructure work starts
Shenzhen Daily
1st December 2016
Han Ximin

[email protected]


SHENZHEN International Airport has initiated a new round of infrastructure work to expand its capacity to meet the increasing demand of both cargo and passenger planes.

The infrastructure work, which includes a third runway, a satellite waiting hall and Terminal 4, has been listed in the city’s 13th Five-Year Plan, and the land-reclamation project for the construction of the third runway and Terminal 4 has started, Shenzhen Airport Group Corp. said in a news release Tuesday, marking the third anniversary of the use of Terminal 3.

The 3.6-kilometer-long and 60-meter-wide runway will be built on land reclaimed from the sea, and is scheduled to be completed in 2018. Shenzhen will also start construction of the Automated People Moving System, which will link Terminal 3 to the future Terminal 4. Work on the underground system for Terminal 3 and Terminal 4 will also start in 2018 and be completed in 2020, according to the airport’s plan.

Since Terminal 3 opened for use in 2013, the number of passengers it serves has been steadily increasing and is expected to reach 40 million by the end of this year.

Passenger turnover is expected to reach Terminal 3’s full capacity of 45 million in 2017, which is three years earlier than the original plan anticipated, so Shenzhen Airport Group Corp. will start research on the new terminal that will be completed in 2025, with a capacity of 52 million passengers a year.

In the past three years, Terminal 3 handled a total of 116 million passengers and 3.05 million tons of cargo.

The 190 air routes, including 23 international routes, link 134 cities in the world. In this year alone, the Shenzhen airport has opened 14 international routes.
In addition to this news, Line 20 of the Shenzhen Metro has also started construction from the site of the new Terminal 4, along 8.4km to the site of the New Shenzhen Exhibition and Convention Centre. This is due to it's integrated planned nature within the planned new terminal, which will also allow connections to the newly opened Line 11 to Terminal 3 and central Shenzhen.

there is only one satellite planned, which is due to start construction soon. And:
1) it will be used by T3 for domestic flights in the near future;
2) then it will be shared between T3 and T4 for domestic flights when T4 is built.

Holiday flights to Sydney
Jan. 11, 2017
Shenzhen Daily Excerpt

CHINA Southern Airlines will operate flights between Shenzhen and Sydney on a daily basis between Jan. 21 and Feb. 5 for Spring Festival holiday travelers.

Currently, China Southern operates three flights between Shenzhen and Sydney on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

The company said it decided to add four flights a week to Sydney to meet demand from local holidaymakers.

Apart from flights to Sydney, the other international holiday flights have mainly been added on routes to Phuket Island in Thailand and Taipei. Eighty-eight percent of the tickets for flights to Sydney between Jan. 15 and 31 have been sold, according to its Shenzhen company.

I hope this measure is properly policed and that it works. It is difficult enough with Black (illegal) Taxis disrupting access to the terminal. The geo-fence is a great idea, ensuring people can only hail the services from the designated pickup zone.

Pickup passageway for app-based cabs at airport

Shenzhen Daily
January 19th, 2016


Han Ximin
[email protected]


SHENZHEN traffic police and Shenzhen International Airport have designated a passageway for app-based cabs to pick up passengers starting Friday.

The passage, which is located inside Parking Lot 3, includes 47 parking spaces in the Reserve Area and 24 spaces in the Pickup Area.

The system at the entrance of the Reserve Area can distinguish between app-based cabs, traditional cabs and other private vehicles through the registered data of app-based cab operators.

“App-based car drivers are allowed to wait inside the car reserve area for 15 minutes for free, but when they pick up passengers on the passageway, they are required to drive off within three minutes, otherwise they will be fined 300 yuan (US$44) and have three penalty points added to their driver’s license,” said Ma Jianjun, head of the Jiachang Brigade of Shenzhen’s traffic police bureau, at a news conference yesterday.

Punishments will be imposed starting Feb. 1 after a nearly two-week grace period.

App-based cab drivers can drop off passengers at the departure hall, but they can’t pick up or wait for passengers at the departure hall.

App-based operators, including Didi, the largest app-based vehicle service provider in China, will set up an electronic fence in the area of the departure hall that disables arriving passengers from sending a request for an app-based cab. To land orders, passengers will need to walk to the Pickup Area through Exit 15 of the Ground Transportation Center and vehicles in the reserve area will be sent to pick them up.

“The measures are being taken to ensure smooth traffic at the departure hall, which has been plagued by app-based cars picking up arrival passengers,” said Liu Ming, general manager of the airport’s traffic operation center.

Shenzhen police implemented a strict rule in December 2013, after the opening of Terminal 3, which only allows vehicles to park at the platform of the departure hall for at most three minutes. The situation has greatly improved since the rule was implemented.

However, with the popularization of app-based cab services, police are facing a challenge as more departing passengers use app-based cabs.

Cab drivers drive to the platform to drop off passengers and some wait at the exits of expressways, or some roads near the airport, waiting for orders. They randomly park their cars and slow down on the way to pick up passengers after receiving orders, disrupting traffic and creating hazards for other vehicles.

Statistics from Didi showed that the operators received about 8,800 orders for airport passengers a day, accounting for 18 percent of the total passengers using ground traffic at the airport.
