If you travel to a foreign country, the airport is almost always the first place you arrive and your first taste of the unique vibe of a city or region.
Norbert Marx, CEO of Guangzhou Aircraft Maintenance Engineering (GAMECO), said his friends are always impressed by the convenience of Baiyun Airport when come and visit him in Guangzhou. “Smooth, clean and spacious are their first impressions. ”
Their experience has to be attributed to the city’s efforts in developing its aviation industry with the aim of becoming an international aviation hub. On September 15th, it just hosted the World Route Development Forum, which gathered aviation enterprises and investors from across the globe, and brought more opportunities to the city.
To gain more insight into this booming industry, we went through a series of security checks on Friday morning to visit Norbert Marx at his office which is located right beside the new Terminal 2. Inside it has giant aircraft being taxied around.
