An emergency plan was triggered at Pudong International Airport on Thursday after nearly all of the over 5,300 parking lots at the P1 and P2 parking buildings became occupied.

Airport staff guided drivers to park at the P0 and P4 garages, which are about 1km away from the terminals. Travelers can then take a free shuttle bus to the terminal buildings.

Pudong airport is handling about 1,530 takeoffs and landings every day, with some 210,000 daily passengers during the Spring Festival holiday, the Shanghai Airport Authority said.
