    General information

    Airport code: PVG

    Number of terminals: 2

    Transfer between terminals

    The transfer from one terminal to the other can be made on foot, and there are moving walkways and escalators for greater convenience.

    A shuttle service also operates between the terminals. In Terminal 1, stops are located at Gate 1 of the Domestic Departures Hall and Gate 8 of the International Departures Hall. In Terminal 2, the shuttle stops at Gate 23 of the Domestic Departures Hall and Gate 27 of the International Departures Hall.

    Transfer between Pudong International Airport and Hongqiao International Airport

    International flights are almost exclusively handled at Pudong International Airport. Hongqiao International Airport is now almost only used for domestic Chinese connections and services to Korea and Japan, among others. Shanghai’s two airports are roughly 50 kilometers apart. The most convenient modes of transportation to transfer from one to the other are the Maglev, or Transrapid, train and line 2 of the city’s Metro network, for both of which it is wise to plan a good 90 minutes. There is also a shuttle service (Line 1), with buses running every 20 minutes between 6 a.m. and 11 p.m. (Tel: +86-21/68 34 66 12). The buses also take roughly 90 minutes for the journey (depending on the traffic).

    Information

    There are several information counters in both terminals and also near the Maglev train station, where tourist and flight information can be obtained. There’s also an information hotline that can be reached on: +86-21/96 990.
