Hong Kong grants Greater Bay Airlines status to start fly route talks overseas

Hong Kong grants Greater Bay Airlines status to start fly route talks overseas

Airline’s chief executive Algernon Yau confirms official recognition from government but says company unlikely to commence flights until after July 1.
Greater Bay Airlines has been awarded designated status from the Hong Kong government, allowing the company to open negotiations with foreign countries to fly 104 routes, the head of the start-up carrier has told the Post.

Algernon Yau Ying-wah, the airline’s chief executive, on Tuesday confirmed that the company had received the official recognition, coming several months after local authorities granted it a five-year licence to operate scheduled commercial flights.

“This decision puts us on the map with overseas authorities and allows us to commence talks and conduct the necessary procedures with them to fly our 104 routes,” he said.
