Summer Dreams Soar as Inaugural Oasis Hong Kong Flight Takes Off for Vancouver

(Forimmediaterelease.net) Hong Kong (June 28, 2007) Oasis Hong Kong Airlines’ much-anticipated inaugural
flight to Vancouver took off today, amid a flurry of sales activity for Oasis flights to Vancouver over the summer season.

Seats on the maiden flight, landing tomorrow morning at Vancouver International
Airport, were highly sought after by passengers wanting to be part of aviation history - the plane recording a higher than 90 per cent load rate.

As well as the intense interest in today’s first flight, sales on all of Oasis Hong Kong Airlines flights to Vancouver have been soaring for the summer season, as people start to take advantage of the value-for-money service that Oasis is now providing to Vancouver.

Chairman of Oasis Hong Kong Airlines, Mr. Raymond Lee, says it is gratifying to see the people of Hong Kong so enthusiastic about the new service.
“Our vision has always been to make international travel to popular destinations more accessible to more people,” says Mr. Lee.

“So to see more than 300 passengers board our aircraft today to fly to an exciting new destination was thrilling. Our vision really is being fulfilled.

“What’s more: it’s not just these passengers who will enjoy our new service. Our
summer ticket sales have been exceptional, meaning thousands more people will be
able to fulfill their summer dream,” says Mr. Lee.

To that end Oasis Hong Kong Airlines has launched a new promotion for teachers and students.

Dreams Soar as Inaugural Oasis Hong Kong Flight Takes Off for Vancouver
Between July 1, 2007 and August 31, 2007, all full-time teachers at primary, secondary and tertiary institutions can fly to Vancouver for just HK$4,500 return, with a free upgrade to business class.

Full-time students can also enjoy return economy fare flights for HK$4,500, or upgrade to businessOasis for a total of $6,500. One companion can also enjoy these special fares, so the passengers can travel together in the same cabin.

“This is an amazing offer that is timed for when people actually want to fly: not off-peak, or through the school year when teachers and students can’t take the time off,” says Mr. Lee.

“We value our educators, and support our future generations, so hope that while they have a scheduled two-month vacation, they will take advantage of this offer and enjoy a summer break to remember.”

Upon boarding the inaugural flight, all passengers were given a special memento to celebrate the historic milestone: an exclusive 1:200 scale aircraft model of the Oasis Hong Kong Airlines Boeing 747-400 aircraft, which now flies six times a week between Hong Kong and Vancouver.
