Shanghai Metro Line 2 to Pudong Airport and Line 10 to open for trial operation this week

The Shanghai Metro company has announced that the Line 2 eastern extension to Pudong International Airport will open for trial operation on Thursday 8th April.

We can also exclusively report that Line 10 will open for trial operation on Saturday 10th April! Trial operation means limited opening times, approximately 9am to 4pm avoiding the morning and evening hours. Expect the lines to switch to full-time operation in a few weeks.

Line 2 extension

The new Line 2 extension stretches from the current terminus at Guanglan Road all the way to Pudong International Airport. The airport station is located between Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. For the first time it will be possible to travel by metro between Pudong and Hongqiao Airports. Note that all passengers will need to change trains at Guanglan Road.

Line 10

You heard it here first, Line 10 will be opening this Saturday! However, again the opening times will be limited initially to 9am to 4pm, and only the central portion of the line will be opening: the westernmost stations at Hongqiao Airport, and the north-eastern part of the line will not be opening yet. We’ll provide a full list of stations set to open as soon as the official announcement is made in the next few days.
