Shanghai mulls new rail link to airports


08:19, April 17, 2013

Shanghai is studying the construction of an express railway to connect its two airports, an official said on Monday.

"We are looking at ways of shortening the time between Pudong International Airport and Hongqiao Airport, such as building an express route, and that means we will see more business jets arriving," said Jing Yiming, vice-president of Shanghai Airport Authority and chairman of Shanghai Hawker Pacific Business Aviation Service Center.

He was speaking at the three-day 2013 Asian Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition (ABACE) that started on Tuesday.

According to Jing, it takes about two hours to travel between the airports by taking the Metro, and if the new express railway is launched, the time range will be shortened to 30-40 minutes.

Business aviation traffic at Shanghai's airports has reached 3,800 flights, accounting for one third of the nation's total.

China's rapid development and huge potential of business and corporate aviation also attract more players to join the market.
