After three years of construction, Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG) opened its new satellite terminal Sept. 16.
The new terminal, which spans over 622,000 sq m (6.7 million sq. ft.), is separated into two segments—S1 and S2.
The new terminal has 90 boarding air bridges and is expected to handle 80 million passengers. Thirty-five air bridges span three levels of the terminal, allowing for quick transition of international or domestic flights.
Currently, only 50% of PVG flights have air bridge access.
S1 will be used by China Eastern Airlines and other SkyTeam members; S2 will be used by other carriers.
