Default Transit PVG

Anyone knows if one still needs to pass thru immigration and collect baggage when transiting in PVG? I have a flight on SQ arriving at 1245 connecting to UA at 1345. Is this too tight to engineer?

wanderlust, I'll try and check minimum connecting times for you later today. From personal experience, it's tight. Will you already have your UA BP? Are the flights on one PNR?

Regarding luggage, for international to domestic, I have always had to clear immigration and collect luggage. Friends of mine managed to have it go through when transferring from an international MU flight to a domestic MU flight.

Two hours minimum if you transfer in the same Terminal, two and a half if you have to change terminal. If your flights are on separate PNRs, I would add another half hour to each transfer.

Hi, are there any updates regarding baggage transfer at PVG? Do passengers still need to collect and re-check in? For same terminal and international to international (OZ to SQ). Thanks in advance!

I did HKG-PVG-BUS via different airlines on each sector and baggage was transferred.

Didn't even consider that it wouldn't. Only issue was the parking space of the flight from/to HKG and the very long bus transit time as it needs to cross two taxiway.

I would allow a long time for any transit at PVG that included an international arrival. It took almost two hours to get through immigration earlier this week.
