Sumary of Greater Bay Airlines ramps up efforts to seek earlier operations within 2021:
- Launch ceremony of the Cross-boundary Wealth Management Connect Pilot Scheme is held in Hong Kong on Friday.
- (Photo/Xinhua) Greater Bay Airlines, a newly launched Hong Kong-based carrier, said it hopes to start operations in late October or early November after it obtained regulatory approval and the license necessary to operate passenger flights.
- The company’s board members include some high-profile personalities such as Arthur Li, deputy chairman of the Bank of East Asia, and Algernon Yau, former executive president of Cathay Dragon.
- “We hoped to conduct the first flight from Hong Kong to Beijing on National Day and celebrate the festival, while we still have a lot of preparation work to do and an operation date can’t be decided yet,” said Yau, Greater Bay Airlines’ chief executive officer, who joined the new carrier after retiring from Cathay Dragon.
