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.

Guangzhou’s aviation “fullback”: lifting, expanding and beyond

Immediately after we arrived at his office, Norbert Marx guided us to a meeting room with a row of windows that he loves very much. Through the window, we could see GAMECO’s workshop---hangers, technicians and aircraft being fixed.

“This is what we do,” said Norbert, “we take care of the aircraft and make sure that they are safe and, technically reliable when you fly for vacation or business.”

Similar to a lot of his fellow German’s, Norbert Marx loves football and he compared the development of the aviation industry to playing football because, in his words, both of them require good teamwork. “Airport, customs, airlines and aviation companies like GAMECO have to be solid and create a good environment to boost development”.

As for Guangzhou, he thinks the city naturally finds itself in a strong position to develop aviation, and become the ‘south gate’ of China.

“When I worked in Beijing in 1994, China was recognized as a big market (but) without strong capabilities. But that has changed,” he said, “the industry is growing rapidly here with many good problems considering growth and efficiency. These are challenges and opportunities that you cannot find in many other countries nowadays.”

Norbert said one of their most recent challenges and opportunities has been Baiyun Airport’s expansion into Terminal 2 (T2). Four airlines including China Southern Airline, GAMECO’s biggest customer, moved to the new terminal since April 26th, which means the company now have to cover both T1 and T2.
