Just in time for ABACE 2018, show host Shanghai Hawker Pacific has completed the expansion of its high-density parking area at Shanghai’s Pudong International Airport. The five new spots are in addition to the 21 already in use, representing an almost 25 percent increase in capacity.

“The new spots went live Saturday night [April 14],” said Carey Matthews, general manager of Shanghai Hawker Pacific. “They completed the construction, painted the area, and it’s up and running.” 

Based on the high-density parking that Shanghai Hawker Pacific established here at Hongqiao International Airport—the first in Mainland China—and developed with the Shanghai Airport Authority and the Civil Aviation Administration of China, the parking area “has made an enormous difference for the business aviation community,” said Eiki Xie, Shanghai Hawker Pacific marketing manager.

The additional parking is just one of the developments that Hawker Pacific, which was purchased by Switzerland’s Jet Aviation earlier this month, is touting at the show. (See page 30.)
