New airports needed to boost business aviation

Date: 31 / 03 / 2016     Author: Worldcargo

The number of airports in China is very limited compared with countries where private aircraft ownership is high
The lack of airports has long been cited as a factor holding back growth in business aircraft ownership in China.
Hoogewerf's latest list of the superrich, released last month, showed that China has the largest number of billionaires in the world at 568, compared to 535 in the United States.
But the number of business aircraft in the country remains relatively low, around 400 at the beginning of 2015, industry figures show.
By comparison, there are about 15,000 owners of 17,000 business aircraft in the US, according to the Washington-based National Business Aviation Association.
The US also has the most airports-more than 19,000 at the end of 2014, a majority of them designated for civilian use. China has only a few hundred airports open to civilian use.
Hoogewerf noted there are other factors as well, affecting the pace of growth in China.
Most major players in the Chinese market including Airbus SAS, The Boeing Co, Gulfstream Aerospace Corp and Embraer SA, are equally optimistic.
"China is one of the largest growth markets in the world today, both for airlines and business jets, and Airbus sees it as an important market for its corporate jets in the coming years," said David Velupillai, marketing director at Airbus Corporate Jets.
Growing business in China will be high on the agenda when delegates from around the world meet in Shanghai for the Asian Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition, April 12 through 14. Some 40 aircraft will be on show at ABACE 2016.
