Business people and entertainment stars who own their own airplanes will from next year be able to fly in and out of China’s first comprehensive hub for private aircraft in Shanghai.
The new RMB80 million ($11.6 million) Hongqiao Airport Business Aviation Center will provide a full range of services for privately owned aircraft, including leasing, hangar space and maintenance, its owners said. It will even have rooms where busy business people can hold work conferences within minutes of touching down in town.
The business aviation center is expected to open in the second half of next year, according to the Shanghai Airport Authority, the operator of the city’s two airports and an investor in the project.
The facility will feature a 3,000-square-meter operations and passenger waiting building, 5,000 square meters of hanger area and a dedicated aircraft apron. Planes using the center will take off and land on the Hongqiao International Airport runway.
