Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport is the gateway to the Chinese Szechuan province, home of the giant panda. The airport of the province’s capital Chengdu is on the rise: in 2011, approximately 30 million passengers came through the airport, making it the fourth busiest in the country with regard to passengers and the fifth busiest with regard to cargo. In last year's ranking, Chengdu airport already surpassed Shenzhen airport, and in the next 24 months, it plans to increase its volume of traffic beyond the levels of Hongqiao airport in Shanghai. A new terminal is currently under construction in Chengdu in order to cope with increasing passenger numbers. It is scheduled to open for business this summer. The new terminal, measuring 296,000 sq m will be directly connected to the current check-in area. In total, both terminals will cover an area of 428,000 sq m, giving Chengdu airport the largest terminal area in central and western China. In the new terminal, passengers will be able to take advantage of 5,000 new Wanzl luggage transport trolleys to conveniently transport their luggage: 4,000 Voyager 3000 plus and 1,000 Easy 88 luggage trolleys. The Wanzl trolleys won over the airport operators with their user-friendly design and high-class finish. Excellent handling characteristics make the Voyager 3000 plus model the most popular luggage transport trolley in China. Wanzl customised the Easy 88 luggage trolley for the Chinese market. Its generous advertising space and large trolley basket make this model very popular amongst duty-free shop owners and advertising agents. For Wanzl, its success in Chengdu marks an important step towards raising the company's market position in western China.
