Shanghai Pudong’s T1 up for renovation


With the Terminal 2 of Shanghai Pudong International Airport now operational since March, the retrofit of Terminal 1, which has been used for several years, will be implemented.
Last July 3, the Shanghai Municipal Political Consultative Conference on Measures of Shanghai Hub Airports to Handle Passenger Traffic Peak during World Expo 2010 was held. China Eastern Airlines disclosed that the airline and Shanghai Airport have drafted a plan for the retrofit of T1, including expanding and retrofitting the boarding corridor and increasing the rest area. Terminals 1 and 2 will follow the same hub operation standards. After the retrofit project, the systems and facilities of T1 will be the same as T2. Under the plan, the number of air bridges will be increased from 28 to 33-35, and the air bridge passage will be renovated. The central garden area of T1 will be combined with the connecting corridor to construct a new area. It is estimated that each floor area will increase by 7,000 sq.m. for the VIP lounge area and transfer area.
