Hong Kong Startup Greater Bay Airlines Granted Air Transport Licence
Hong Kong's Air Transport Licensing Authority has said that it has granted an air transport licence to startup Greater Bay Airlines, clearing the way for it to operate scheduled commercial flights immediately.
First Cargo Charter Flight
Greater Bay Airlines operated its first cargo charter flight last November after receiving its air operator's certificate in October, but until now had not been approved to launch regularly scheduled commercial flights.
The startup will be competing against the financial centre's dominant carrier, Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd 0293.HK, and Hong Kong Airlines.
