Shanghai Pudong International is the larger of two airports serving Shanghai, China. Located just 19 miles from down-town Shanghai and handling more than 40.5 million passengers and over 3.5 metric tonnes of cargo a year, Shanghai Pudong is thought to be one of the busiest and most centrally located airports in the world.
Opened in 1999 at the cost of $1.67 billion dollars, the airport is well equipped with two passenger terminals, a cargo terminal and three runways which help to facilitate the arrival and departure of millions of domestic and international travellers as well as cargo, freight and mail.
As more than half of Shanghai Pudong Airport's passenger traffic is made up of international travellers, the airport has a range of conveniences to suit foreign passengers including restaurants and parking.
The airport is also serviced by a high speed train connecting Pudong International with the Longyang Road Metro where a transfer to the city centre via line 2 or 7 can be made.
