Sino Jet is continuing its expansion into mainland China with the first FBO at Nanchang Changbei International Airport. Jiangxi Airport VIP Service Company is developing and managing the FBO under a strategic partnership with Sino Jet. The companies recently held a grand opening ceremony at the airport.
A new FBO will be built in an independent terminal that will accompany dedicated business aircraft parking facilities and offer 24/7 ground handling, a passenger and crew lounge, baggage services, and a range of other services and amenities. Sino Jet will provide ground handling, a flight operating system, and personalized customer service.
“With the appropriate investment, Nanchang can become a regional hub for business aviation in southwest China,” Sino Jet said. “With Sino Jet’s global resources, and highly experienced, international team, we can flexible business jet management solutions to the region’s growing community of businesses and high-net-worth individuals.”
The rapidly growing Asian business aircraft charter management firm said the investment is in preparation for an anticipated 20 percent year-over-year increase in business jet use in Jiangxi Province over the next three years. Nanchang Airport accounted for less than 1 percent of the 27,000 business jet movements in China in 2019, Sino Jet said, noting, “Despite the strong demand for business aviation in Nanchang, growth is slowed by a lack of facilities when compared with other regional airports.”
