Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG) in China has unveiled the fourth phase of its expansion project, which aims to bolster connectivity in the Yangtze River Delta (YRD) area and fulfil the development requirements of Shanghai-based carriers.

The airport organised a ground-breaking ceremony for the implementation of 82 major projects in the Pudong New Area in East China’s Shanghai city, marking the latest expansion phase of PVG.

In total, these projects have been estimated to cost $49.8bn (CNY317.6bn).

In a statement, PVG said: “The fourth phase of Pudong Airport’s expansion project was launched in response to the Shanghai international shipping centre construction plan during the 14th Five-Year Plan period (2021-2025) and the YRD integration development strategy.”

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

PVG will also develop a new eastern cargo area, along with the necessary auxiliary facilities.

The airport will be able to handle 130 million passengers annually upon completion of this phase.

In July last year, PVG revealed plans to build a new terminal building.

The new T3 terminal will feature two main buildings, for both domestic and international businesses, and is projected to manage 50 million passengers each year.

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

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