The famous Hurun rich list, compiled by Rupert Hoogewerf, is offering private plane flights as awards for the wealthy entrepreneurs. China's rich still need some encouragement to rent a private plane. Prices will be handed out during a ceremony coming weekend in Beijing, Hoogewerf told Xinhua.
"We'd like to show respect to those who devoted themselves to society. Moreover, it will definitely be a wonderful experience to have a trip on a private plane," said Rupert Hoogewerf, sponsor of the prize and founder of the Hurun Rich List of China's super-wealthy.
News reports said that China expects to open up its low-altitude airspace in a few flying-restricted zones on a trial basis...
"If the low-altitude airspace is opened, private jets could not only serve the booming new rich for entertainment, but also expand the commercial market," said Rupert Hoogewerf, adding that some big companies will greatly speed up their business trips if they use private aircraft.
