Sino Jet, Asia’s largest and fastest-growing business jet operator has entered a strategic partnership with the Jiangxi Airport VIP Service Company to build and manage the first fixed-base operator facility (FBO) at Nanchang Changbei International Airport. The grand opening of the FBO took place on September 24. The investment forms part of Sino Jet’s expansion into mainland China ahead of an expected a 20% year-on-year increase in business jet use in Jiangxi Province over the next three years.
Business jet movements in China exceeded 27,000 in 2019, with Nanchang Airport accounting for less than one percent of the total flights. “Despite the strong demand for business aviation in Nanchang, growth is slowed by a lack of facilities when compared with other regional airports. Sino Jet’s investment stems from our confidence in the growth potential of Jiangxi Province as part of China’s growing business aviation ecosystem.” a spokesperson of Sino Jet said.
