Second business aviation base planned

THE city airport authority is going to build a business aviation hangar with other projects to facilitate the anticipated growth in China's emerging private aviation business.

The city is about to see its second business aviation base, at the Pudong International Airport, in about two years to cater to a growing private jet market, said Jing Yiming, vice president of the Shanghai Airport Authority. Parking areas will be set aside for private jets.

Shanghai has one base, including a hangar and a maintenance center, at the Hongqiao International Airport. One more hangar is planned there.

Major jet makers, including Airbus, Boeing and Bombardier, will exhibit 30 planes and helicopters at the three-day annual Asia Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition that starts today at Hongqiao. Shanghai airports handled 3,800 departures and landings of business aircraft last year, 33 percent of China's mainland total.
