Shanghai Hongqiao Airport To Build Biz Jet Hub

Mon Oct 09, 2006 8:44 pm

Shanghai will build a business aircraft hub at its Hongqiao International Airport in cooperation with Australia-based Hawker Pacific Pty Ltd, airport officials said yesterday.

The Shanghai Airport Authority, operator of the city's two airports, signed a memorandum yesterday with Hawker Pacifica, one of the world's leaders in aviation equipment sales and product support, to cooperate on the project.

The facility will be designed to accommodate 6,000 takeoffs and landings by business aircraft every year, airport officials said.

Cheers.

Hongqiao has a pretty good service on commercial airlines, I flew from there to Beijing on a China Eastern 737-300, it was a very busy airport. Run down terminals an' all but the ramp was buzzing.

I must say the boom in private jets does not bode well if we're supposed to reduce our emissions.
