Aircraft Arrival Procedures

Updated April 4, 2019
The Aircraft Information Request Form and Aircraft Sponsor Letter Request Form are no longer applicable for ABACE2019. Please review the new aircraft arrival procedures below.

Only aircraft officially participating at the ABACE2019 static display may file flight plans to Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport (SHA) from April 4 to April 22. During this time, SHA will be closed to all transient aircraft operations from aircraft that are not part of the official ABACE static display. Other aircraft must fly in and out of Pudong International Airport (PVG) during this time.

The following information for each arriving aircraft must be reported to ABACE by email to [email protected].

  • Aircraft registration number
  • Designated ground handling company
    Aircraft operators must notify ABACE by email to [email protected] of their designated ground handling company no later than 15:00 Shanghai time on Wednesday, April 10. Any aircraft who have not notified ABACE by the deadline will be assigned a ground handling agent by ABACE management. Review the list of ABACE2019 authorized ground handling companies.

ABACE2019 static display exhibitors should file their flight plans through their normal channels and flight planning organizations. Flights should be scheduled for the arrival times assigned by ABACE Management. Aircraft traffic control may adjust the arrival times to the closest available slot time. ABACE will accept the decisions of air traffic control as the official arrival time.
