Formerly Hongtu Airlines

Hongtu Airlines (Kunming) commenced scheduled operations on May 21, 2016.

Now the airline is apparently set to rebrand itself as Air Travel. The new livery and identity has been revealed on the pending delivery of the pictured Airbus A320 (top).

The company has not yet formally announced the change.
