New restrictions on carry-on luggage by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) came into force at Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG) on Sept 1.
According to the new rules, carry-on luggage exceeding 115cm in combined length, width and height will be prohibited from being carried on board. Bags that do not meet the size and weight restrictions now need to be checked in.
PVG has added bulletin boards in the Domestic and International/Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan departure areas in its two terminals to notify passengers about the new regulations. The airport also arranged staff to help check passengers’ bags in at the entrance areas of the terminals.
PVG would like to remind passengers to check in their luggage as early as possible, in order to avoid unnecessary delays.
Shanghai Pudong International Airport Aviation Fuel Supply Co, Ltd, located on No 1 Pudong Airport Avenue, specializes in providing refueling services for domestic and foreign airlines landing at and taking off from Pudong Airport.
The company was founded in September 1997 by three shareholders -- Shanghai International Airport Co, China Aviation Oil (Singapore) and Sinopec Shanghai Gaoqiao Petrochemical Corporation.
The company has complete fuel supply facilities and advanced refueling equipment. Its fuel supply facilities include the Gaoqiao Transshipment Oil Depot, an airport oil depot, an aviation refueling station and oil transmission pipelines inside and outside the airport.
The operation and management of the entire oil supply system are controlled automatically. Aviation oil is transmitted to the airport oil depot through outside-airport oil transmission pipelines after being received at the Gaoqiao Transshipment Oil Depot. The oil is then transmitted to the airport ramp through inside-airport oil transmission pipelines. Aviation refueling services are then provided by virtue of tanker and pipeline refuelers.
The company started operation on Oct 1, 1999 when Pudong International Airport officially opened. For more than six years, the company has strictly implemented safety management rules and provided domestic and foreign airlines with safe and high-quality fuel support services. Both refueling volume and refueled planes have significantly increased since the company’s establishment. Besides supplying oil for regular flights, the company also provides refueling support for special and chartered planes. The company passed ISO9000 Quality System Certification in March 2003 and ISO14000 Environment System Certification in January 2005.
The company provides qualified and accurate refueling support services for special and chartered planes and regular flights landing at Pudong International Airport. The company also offers technical consultancy regarding aviation oil and services for the construction of oil supply facilities at Pudong International Airport.
