Hong Kong Airlines is offering its pilots transfers to other HNA Group airlines as it attempts to downsize according to the South China Morning Post.
In other news, the management of the airline is coming under further scrutiny.
The airline issued this statement on April 23:
Hong Kong Airlines confirms that its Directors and the current management of the Company have received court orders in relation to its management. The orders are temporary, pending further confirmation by the court and are subject to change. In any event, they do not affect the day-to-day operations of the airline. We continue to operate as normal and there are no changes to our management.
Hong Kong Airlines appreciates that our shareholders are aware that their recent activities may have resulted in a heightened level of interest amongst members of the public. As a responsible carrier, Hong Kong Airlines has always put the interests of our customers first. In spite of last week’s development, every staff member has upheld the highest level of professionalism and we remain committed to delivering a safe and smooth service to all our passengers.
Our operations remain normal. Over the Easter holidays, Hong Kong Airlines operated 417 flights and carried over 85,000 passengers between April 19 and 22, 2019, representing a 3% increase over the same period last year. As the Labour Day holidays approach, Hong Kong Airlines is getting ready to serve more than 102,000 passengers who have chosen to fly with us for their holidays.
Hong Kong Airlines and its staff remain united and will continue to focus on delivering our best service to all our customers. We trust that our stakeholders will remain professional and solve the issue in an impartial manner.
