CHINA 13-18 Nov 2012 Zhuhai hosts Airshow China
The China International Aviation Aerospace Exhibition is the country's only official aviation show. Held every two years in Zhuhai, Guangdong, it shows off Chinese aircraft, features trade talks and flying displays, and draws foreign aircraft manufacturers. All the makers will be competing for a slice of the action: China plans to add more than 300 planes a year to its fleet until 2015 as part of a massive expansion of the aviation sector. European makers are likely to be excluded from consideration because of the European Union's Emissions Trading Scheme.

CHINA 13-18 Nov 2012 Zhuhai hosts Airshow China
The China International Aviation Aerospace Exhibition is the country's only official aviation show. Held every two years in Zhuhai, Guangdong, it shows off Chinese aircraft, features trade talks and flying displays, and draws foreign aircraft manufacturers. All the makers will be competing for a slice of the action: China plans to add more than 300 planes a year to its fleet until 2015 as part of a massive expansion of the aviation sector. European makers are likely to be excluded from consideration because of the European Union's Emissions Trading Scheme.
Reuters reported in June that according to Airbus and other sources in the aerospace industry, China is delaying plane orders worth up to US $14 billion from European maker Airbus over the emissions row. Beijing has told the Chinese airlines not to comply with the scheme, which required them to submit carbon emissions data by Mar 31. The newsagency notes that EU member states can fine airlines for non-compliance or carry out other reprisals, including impounding aircraft.

The chief of the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC), Li Jiaxiang, told delegates to the annual general meeting of global airline industry group IATA in Beijing in June that the country's carriers will add the 300 planes under the country's current five-year economic plan. According to AFP, one of several news organs that reported the story, China also plans to build 70 new airports in the next few years and to expand 100 existing airports as part of the plan. Li added that by the end of 2011, China had 2,888 commercial planes in operation and its aviation industry employed 1.2 million people. (WRITTEN Jun 2012)
