|Transport Hub Shenzhen|
On the 2nd of July 2009 the first airport waiting hall inside Shenzhen Special Economic Zone opened. The building is located in Futian district and is a huge glass structure. I pass it everyday on my way to work and it looks very modern and advanced. Travelers using the Shenzhen airport can check in for their flights, buy tickets and insurance and read the latest information about inbound and outbound flights on a digital screen. There are 600 free parking spaces for people who fly from Shenzhen Airport.

Inside the brand new Transport Hub in Futian district.
Still quiet at the ticket counters for Shenzhen Airlines; window for buying bus tickets was more busy though.
The transport hub is conveniently connected to Zhi Zi Lin subway station on line 1
After check-in, travelers can take shuttle buses to the Shenzhen airport. The buses operate from 6:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. at 30-minute intervals. A promotion is being offered during the trial period until Oct. 4 2009, during which the bus trip is 10 yuan per person for group travelers and 12 yuan for individual travelers. The price increases to 20 yuan per person after the trial period.
Passengers cannot check in their luggage at the waiting hall. Their luggage goes through a special lane reserved for VIPs at the airport, so this would still be faster than just going to the airport. The airport is trying get approval for luggage check-in at the transport hub.
The waiting hall at Futian is the 14th of its kind that the Shenzhen airport has opened in Pearl River Delta cities. Other waiting halls are in Huizhou, Dongguan, Zhongshan, Zhuhai, Macao and Hong Kong.
