Shanghai/Pudong – Wednesday 26th October 2016 (Grant Robinson)

Hi all,
our day was to finish at Shanghai/Pudong which is the busier of Shanghai’s two airports. Shanghai/Hongqiao is much more domestic orientated whereas Pudong gets a bit more International stuff. I also think some Shanghai Airlines stuff is based at one or the other, so visits to both airports is needed on that basis alone. The weather had turned again and a big black storm was approaching as we headed to Pudong from the Shanghai Vocational School of CAAC.

This was one of those airports where there is a choice of hotels, with some being located away from the terminals. After much research we went for the Da Zhong Pudong Airport Hotel located in between the terminals.

The layout of this hotel means that a South facing room is vital if you want to see movements on both of the runways. Given the extreme weather and the much reduced visibility we were to experience that day and the next, it’s a good job we went for this place and got the rooms we wanted.

I rang the hotel in advance and they had South facing rooms 8701 and 8801 reserved for us. On arrival we were actually given rooms 8701 and 8501 as the top floor top (where 8801 is) was under going deep cleaning and was closed off.

Room 8701 was very good and although 8501 was lower, it was also good enough. 8801 would be best if you can get it. I imagine but don’t know, that North facing rooms may work too?….

These specific rooms give a view of departing and arriving traffic on both runways regardless of which direction they are operating, albeit the terminals either side of the hotel restrict your views. You also get a great view of a taxiway that links the two parallel runways. At times visibility was so bad, we could only see aircraft that were crossing on this taxiway!
