CJET/Million Air will proudly accept the EPIC Card. Customers choosing to use the EPIC Card at this location will receive exclusive priority services including convenient aircraft parking, luggage valet services and access to the new pilots’ lounge. The facility will formally open on January 1st, 2016.

A short drive from Beijing’s Central Business District, the airport is located in the Shunyi District. From the airfield, CJET/Million Air is conveniently located off the approach end of Runway 36R. Established in May 2000, CJET is the only authorized ground service and customer passage provider for private aviation in and out of ZBAA as well as the greater Beijing metropolitan area. The company owns and operates special-purposed parking aprons, VIP lounges and independent facilities such as customs, frontier defense and security check for customer discretion, safety and convenience. CJET has grown significantly over the past several years and currently enjoys a domestic market share of more than 60 percent of all business aviation traffic within mainland China.

The partnership between CJET, Million Air and EPIC is a perfect fit as Beijing traffic often consists of heads of state, senior government officials as well as domestic and foreign business elites. The addition of Million Air’s high- service standards and training is a perfect complement to CJET since they have significant experience in ground support and servicing high-profile customers attending events such as the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympic and Paralympics Games, Fortune Global Forum, China-Africa Forum, 2015 Asian Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit (APEC), the 60th anniversary of the founding of the PRC, Shanghai World Expo, and the Asian Paralympic Games.

“Together with Million Air and EPIC, CJET will constantly improve and forge a new business aviation operating base to launch the first Million Air co-branded FBO in China. The partnership with Million Air and EPIC will enable CJET to have a sustainable, stable and healthy development, improve the level of service, safety of operation and fully meet international service standards,” said Y. F. Jin, Chief Engineer for CJET.

“Million Air is excited to expand to China for our first time presence in Asia. We embrace this opportunity to bring a new level of FBO services at CJET/Million Air with Epic and CJET as our partners,” says Roger Woolsey, CEO of Million Air.

“We’re excited to extend our EPIC Card network to China through this partnership with Million Air and CJET. Together we’re able to deliver superior service and added-value to our cardholders who choose Million Air Beijing as their point of entry in China,” said Bill Conley, Chairman and CEO of EPIC Aviation LLC.

CJET/Million Air will provide a range of FBO Services delivered with professionalism and quality associated with the Million Air brand. The facility features an onsite Customs and Immigration office for the convenience of travelers arriving from abroad.
