Shanghai Pudong International Airport ( PVG - ZSPD )                         


Shanghai is the second largest city in China, a true economic capital. The population density is very concentrated. In order to serve the metropolis and open up to the world, the Shanghai PVG Airport is the biggest, it is truly a gateway to the country. It is located east of the Huangpu River, on the shore of Pudong which gave it its name. The chosen terrain is, however, located 40km from the city center. The two large terminals are in the center of twice two parallel runways oriented "north-south". In the West the 17R-35L are used for arrivals while the 17L-35R are intended for takeoffs. The west side T1 is mainly destined for China Eastern, Shanghai Airlines and Skyteam Group airlines. The East T2 welcomes the rest of the traffic, and to the east of the latter are the two other runways 16R-34L for takeoffs and 16L-34R for landing. A fifth track all the way east, numbered 15-33, has been built but is not used yet. A major freight terminal is beating tons of goods arriving or departing on numerous cargo flights. Chinese airlines serve Shanghai throughout the day, both for long-haul domestic flights. Air China, Eastern, Southern, Hainan, but also the low-cost airlines including Spring Air and Juneyao Airlines make up the vast majority of flights. Other routes are operated by major airlines in Europe, the United States, the Middle East and Southeast Asia.

Let's enjoy a long match in Shanghai between flights to try to give yourself the joys of spotting. It must be said that our favorite sport is far from always easy ... The weather, the position of the sun, the wind direction, the procedure, the chance of the terminal on which we were supposed to arrive ... But sometimes the chance did well and during the few hours in the afternoon at Terminal 2, runways 16R and 16L were used. The sun finally broke through the usual smog layer on the region and we took the opportunity to photograph the zincs that passed in front of us, a "flightreport" well imaged to get a good idea of ​​the traffic in Shanghai Pudong.
