Pudong Airport launches the fourth phase of its expansion project


Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG) in China unveiled the fourth phase of its expansion project, which aims to strengthen connectivity in the Yangtze River Delta region (YRD) and meet the development needs of carriers based in Shanghai.

The airport held a groundbreaking ceremony for the implementation of 82 major projects in the Pudong New Area in the city of Shanghai, east China, marking the latest phase of PVG’s expansion.

In total, these projects were estimated at $ 49.8 billion (CNY 317.6 billion).

In a statement, PVG said, “The fourth phase of the Pudong Airport expansion project was launched in response to the plan to build the Shanghai International Shipping Center during the period of the 14th Five-Year Plan ( 2021-2025) and the YRD integration development strategy.

As part of the fourth phase, the airport will work on a terminal area, a flight area, transport facilities and municipal technical support facilities.

PVG will also develop a new freight zone in the east, as well as the necessary ancillary facilities.

The airport will be able to accommodate 130 million passengers per year at the end of this phase.

In July of last year, PVG revealed its intention to build a new terminal.

The new T3 terminal will consist of two main buildings, for national and international companies, and is expected to handle 50 million passengers each year.

The T3 will be equipped with green and smart technologies, including a public check-in system, an automatic baggage sorting system and a self-service check-in system for non-baggage.

The airport, which opened in 1999, is a key hub for Shanghai Airlines, Air China, and China Eastern Airlines.
