China (People's Republic of China) was established in 1949, it covers an area of 9,560,980 sq km, its population is 1,265 million, its capital city is Beijing, and its official language is Chinese.
April 2013: Boeing Business Jets (BJC) celebrated the completion of the 1st 737-700 BBJ for China’s Nanshan Jet at a ceremony held at the Asian Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (ABACE) in Shanghai.
“The Nanshan Group is an excellent example of a customer who understands the unique capabilities of the Boeing Business Jet and how this airplane addresses the needs of emerging Chinese global business,” said Captain Steve Taylor President Boeing Business Jets. “As Nanshan expands their businesses into even more international markets, the BBJ’s size, range and comfort is the right tool to help their business grow.”
Before the ceremony, Taylor and Yu Bin Chairman of Nanshan Aviation Development Company, met on board a BBJ on display at the show with Gary Locke, USA Ambassador to China and former Washington State Governor. “I flew on a Boeing Business Jet from Seattle to China 10 years ago when we celebrated 30 years of Boeing doing business in China,” said Gary Locke, USA Ambassador to China. “It’s like flying in a house. It’s so spacious and comfortable. I can’t imagine making that long of a trip in a smaller business jet.”
Nanshan Jet’s BBJ, a modified 737-700, is the 1st BBJ for a Chinese customer designed with a traditional business jet interior that includes a bedroom suite with a queen-size bed and seating for 28 passengers. Previous BBJs delivered to Chinese customers were designed specifically for use as charter airplanes in the region. The airplane was completed by Lufthansa Technik (DLH) (LTK)’s USA subsidiary, BizJet, in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
BBJ is anticipating a big year in Asia in 2013. 3 of 7 BBJs scheduled to enter service this year with completed (VIP) interiors (including Nanshan Jet’s BBJ) are for customers in Asia. 4 of 6 BBJs scheduled for “green” (unpainted and without interior) delivery to completion centers this year are for customers in Asia, including 3 Chinese customers.
A key advantage BBJ offers is longer range, which is very important to buyers in China due to the great distances from Asia to Europe and North America. For example, the BBJ has the capability to fly nonstop from Seattle to Shanghai, something its direct competitor cannot do.

October 2015: News Item A-1: On the opening day of the Air Traffic Control (ATC) Global Show in Dubai, Thales (THL) announced its continued growth in China, with the signing of a contract to implement its latest Air Traffic Management (ATM) automation systems for the Shanghai Metroplex air space.
(THL) and Beijing Easy Sky Technology (BEST), a Thales – (TEDC) joint venture (JV), have jointly signed a contract with the Civil Aviation Authority of China (CAAC), East Air Traffic Management Bureau (ATMB), in order to implement a new (ATM) automation system in Shanghai.
Through this contract, (THL), together with (BEST), will upgrade the Shanghai airspace and airport management systems. This will include the Shanghai terminal maneuvering area and surface operations at Shanghai Pudong and Shanghai Hongqiao airports.
The contract includes implementation of (THL) "TopSky-(ATC)." (THL) will also deploy "TopSky-Tower," its advanced, integrated tower automation suite, at both Shanghai airports. Airport and airspace traffic flows will be sequenced and balanced using (MAESTRO), (THL)'s fully integrated arrival and departure management system.
This is a crucial contract for the region, as collectively, the Shanghai Metroplex (incorporating both Shanghai airports) ranks just behind Beijing in China, and is in the top 10 in the world, in terms of air traffic movements. With air traffic in the region set to grow at a steady +20% over the next 10 years, the modernization program will be instrumental in maintaining the projected growth rate, while supporting excellence in air safety for the Shanghai Metroplex.
