The Shanghai Pudong International Airport ( Chinese  上海 浦东 国际 机场 , Pinyin Shànghǎi Pǔdōng Guójì Jīchǎng ) is one of the two international airports in the Chinese city ​​of Shanghai with Shanghai-Hongqiao .

The airport was opened on the 50th anniversary of the People's Republic of China on October 1, 1999.

The maximum speed is 431 km / h and the route has a length of about 30 kilometers. While the track was built by a Chinese company, the train itself comes from the German Transrapid consortium . He has two class areas. The route is operated by the Shanghai Maglev Train Corporation .


Terminal 1

The capacity was initially 40 million passengers a year. In March 2008 a second terminal with a very similar architecture was inaugurated and the capacity increased to 60 million passengers per year. In the long term, the airport is to house one of the four future logistics centers, be able to welcome 80 million passengers a year and have four terminals.
