Shenzhen Bao'an International Airport (simplified Chinese: 深圳宝安国际机场; traditional Chinese: 深圳寶安國際機場; pinyin: Shēnzhèn Bǎo'ān Guójì Jīchǎng; formerly named Shenzhen Huangtian Airport) (IATA: SZX, ICAO: ZGSZ) is located near Huangtian and Fuyong villages in Bao'an District, Shenzhen, Guangdong, the People's Republic of China. It is 32 km from the city centre (CBD) at Luohu District. It is the hub for Shenzhen Airlines, and a focus city for China Southern Airlines. The airport also serves as a Asian-Pacific cargo hub for UPS Airlines. The airport is currently undergoing major expansion with a new terminal and a second runway under construction. By 2012, it will form one of the three largest airport hubs serving southern China, alongside Hong Kong International Airport and Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport.

History

The airport was opened on 12 October 1991. It occupies an area of 10.8 km². Its runway is 3400 m long and 45 m wide, and it has 53 parking spaces on its apron. The airport also has ferry routes to Hong Kong International Airport, where passengers can transit without going through immigration and custom checks, akin to transit between two flights. Its current terminal covers an area of 152,000 sq meters and consist of 24 jet-ways.

Shenzhen airport handled 24,486,406 passengers in 2009, according to Civil Aviation Administration of China, making itself the fifth busiest in China. The airport was also China's 4th busiest and world's 27th busiest airport in terms of cargo traffic, registering 605,469 tonnes of freight. In terms of traffic movements, Shenzhen airport was the 5th busiest airport in China in 2009.

In comparison with Hong Kong International Airport, Shenzhen Airport offers greater connectivity to domestic Chinese cities at a cheaper ticket price but is less convenient for Hong Kong residents and for the international traveler suffers from, on comparative terms, low levels of spoken English.
