At Greater Bay Airlines we have a vision to complement the development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, as set out in China’s National Plan, and to strengthen Hong Kong’s position as a world-class aviation hub. We have a clear commitment to provide an exceptional customer experience as we connect people to and from the Greater Bay Area to points in Chinese Mainland and the broader Asian region.
Our mission at GBA is clear. We aim to provide our customers with a smooth, seamless, and value-added travel experience as we fly to a growing number of destinations. At the same time, we will continue to expand access to passenger and cargo services for the benefit of the 86 million people living in the eleven dynamic and increasingly important cities of the Greater Bay Area.
I have spent my entire career in aviation, working in the industry for 40 years in roles ranging from ground staff training to general management. One thing my experience has taught me is that nothing can work without a good team in place – a group of people who know the industry, understand customers’ needs and are all always ready to go the extra mile to make things happen.
At GBA, our team is made up of seasoned professionals who know what it takes to make an airline deliver, whether it’s providing safe, efficient operations, exceptional customer service, or working behind the scenes to provide a seamless experience. We are also keen to attract new blood to the airline – smart people, especially in our home base of Hong Kong, who have the creative mindsets that can spark innovation.
Every successful airline can look back on its humble beginnings. At GBA we will start small – with just a few destinations and two aircraft – but growth is very much on our mind. We have applied for licences to fly to 104 destinations in Chinese Mainland and across Asia, and our fleet is set to expand. By end of 2022 we will be operating 3 state-of-the-art Boeing 737-800s and thereafter we have plans for continued expansion.
As the airline grows, our team will grow, and their experience and expertise will feed through to the customer in the form of seamless services and a commitment to making every journey a safe, enjoyable and rewarding one that is also great value.
It is every aviation-lover’s dream to be at the helm of a new airline as it gets ready to make its mark on the world. For me, what’s even more exciting is that our airline takes its name from one of Chinese Mainland’s most dynamic and forward-looking regions that is poised for unprecedented growth. Greater Bay Airlines is proud and excited to be part of this new era of opportunity for the Greater Bay Area, in which Hong Kong is going to play an important role.
On behalf of our Board of Directors, our management team and staff, I hope you will join us on our journey. We look forward to welcoming you on our aircraft soon.
