SHANGHAI, Nov.8 (Xinhua) -- China's provisions for executive flying took a major step forward on Tuesday, when Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport was licensed as an aviation service base specifically for business jets, according to an airport official.

The license means business jets can be repaired and maintained on the Chinese mainland for the first time.

The certificate for aircraft maintainance was issued by the East China Regional Administration of the Civil Aviation Administration of China, said Jing Yiming, vice president of the Shanghai Airport Authority.

It marks out the airport, with facilities for parking, maintainance and extensive repair, as a major service base for business jets in the Asian-Pacific region, he said.
