Business aviation event to land Hongqiao airport
04/18/2018 Shanghai Daily
The Asian Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (ABACE) is held at the Shanghai Hawker Pacific Business Aviation Service Center at Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport this week. 






In partnership with Shanghai Airport Authority and co-hosted by the National Business Aviation Association and the Asian Business Aviation Association, ABACE is Asia’s premier business aviation event.


ABACE has become a high-value event, attracting entrepreneurs, wealth creators, aircraft-purchase decision makers and other high-level attendees from China and across Asia. 


Since its launch in 2012, ABACE has rapidly grown to over 8,000 attendees from 51 countries around the world, 165 exhibitors, 35 business aircraft on static display and more than 350 members of the media.


Next to the Hongqiao airport where this year’s ABACE is held is Linkong Economic Demonstration Zone.






According to the latest development blueprint for Changning, district policy makers have tipped the economic zone for a key role in the development of aviation services, already a pillar of the local economy.


Changning has planned to develop Linkong into a base for aviation services to attract higher value-added links in the aviation industry chain. At the same time, the development of aviation services and related businesses is expected to enrich the stature and structure of the local shipping and aviation industries.


One notable aviation organization in Linkong is Sky Safari. Headquartered in the zone, Sky Safari is the first general aviation training institution in Shanghai and is equipped with ground training simulators. It also offers services related to aviation planning, aircraft leasing and sales, aircraft repairs and maintenance. Its fleet of training and recreational aircraft includes a Cessna 172, Robinson R44 and Bell 407.






Apart from the aviation service industry, Linkong is also a national e-commerce demonstration base where industry leaders like and iQiyi are headquartered.
