As 2020 approaches, Hongqiao airport's two terminals are decorated with garlands and colored balls to create a festive atmosphere with Shanghai features. The International, Hong Kong-Macao-Taiwan Departures Hall at Hongqiao T1 is decorated with a crystal tree as the main design element, while T2 has white magnolias, the city flower of Shanghai. A seven-meter-high crystal white magnolia tree on the south side of T2's check-in hall attracts many passengers. Using LED soft screen technology to achieve a masterful display of shadow and light with interior decorations and dynamic videos, passengers are enjoying a beautiful visual experience.
