Hong Kong, November 25, 2019Today, Shanghai Airport Authority and Shangri-La Group announced the official signing of a co-operation agreement for the Shanghai Hongqiao Airport Shangri-La hotel project. Leveraging on the developmental plans of the Hongqiao Business District and Shanghai Hongqiao integrated transportation hub, the new Shangri-La hotel will be an ideal venue for meetings, incentives conferences and events, plus offer the perfect catering space for social functions to locals and travelers alike. Construction is expected to commence in 2020. The hotel is targeted to be completed and operational in 2023.

Located in the north wing of Terminal 2, the Shanghai Hongqiao Airport Shangri-La hotel is in the heart of the Hongqiao Business District. The new 55,000-square-meter (about 592,015-square-foot) hotel integrates a dual-brand experience of Shangri-La and Traders hotels for travelers to choose the hotel that best fits their needs. With the lobby directly connected to Terminal 2 of Shanghai Hongqiao Airport, the hotel will provide a seamless connection to the High-speed Rail Station, connecting Shanghai to destinations throughout China, the city metro system and the upcoming maglev train between the Hongqiao and Pudong airports.

The hotel will feature diverse facilities and spaces for business and leisure as well as Shangri-La’s culinary offerings. The expansive event space and convenient location will make the hotel an ideal venue for meetings, celebrations and social events held in the Hongqiao Business District. Smart technologies will be integrated into the project design.

Shanghai Airport Authority and Shangri-La Group both believe that the new hotel project will be a testament to the strengths of the Hongqiao integrated transportation hub. With Shangri-La Group’s operational expertise and its renowned Asian hospitality standards, the project will enhance Shanghai Hongqiao Airport’s world-class service standards and provide travelers, business guests and leisure customers with even more comfort, convenience, flexibility and diversified experiences.
