More international brands and eateries have opened at Hongqiao airport to serve increasing demand during the summer travel peak.
The number of travelers is rebounding from the influence of the coronavirus pandemic as the gaokao, or national college entrance examination, has ended and the summer vacation has begun.
The airport has handled about 100,000 passengers a day since July 10, over 80 percent of its usual capacity. An average of 714 flights had taken off and landed at the airport, the same as last year year.
To cap the demand from travelers and boost consumption at its terminals, the airport has launched a promotional campaign involving around 100 popular stores in its T1 and T2 terminals.
Subsidized by the airport authority, consumers can enjoy discounts ranging from 15 percent off purchases over 200 yuan to a 1,500-yuan reduction in shopping worth 4,000 yuan.
Over 30 luxury brands at the airport, including MaxMara, Tod’s, Bally and Jimmy Choo, are taking part. Many local brands, such as Shanghai First Foodhall, Xinghualou and Lifeng, are also participating along with 46 other retailers and 16 restaurants.
"With more travelers coming to the airport, the retail volume at Hongqiao airport has been recovering from the impact of the COVID-19," said Karina Lai, a retail management official at the airport.
