According to an article in the German tabloid "Express" is the management of Cologne/Bonn airport in talks with Oasis Hong Kong Airlines. The airline should fly Hong Kong-Cologne/Bonn, a ticked will cost approximately 400 EUR, food on board is for free but alcoholic drinks and the usage of the entertainment system will cost an extra fee. Furthermore is the airline planning to fly to other destinations like London, Milan and Berlin.
Does anyone have more information about this airline? I searched in the A.net database but I couldn't find anything. What types of planes do they have in their fleet? Are they already flying to destinations within Asia?

They are not flying at all until now. They don´t have a license yet. Cathay is trying to stop them somehow. They are planning to operate 747-400s and are already looking for pilots. The people behind it do have the money and the know-how for such a project, so it is not just hot air.

Hong Kong-based budget carrier Oasis Hong Kong Airlines has applied to the Air Transport Licensing Authority for six destinations - London Gatwick, Cologne/Bonn, Berlin, Milan, Oakland and Chicago.
However, the Civil Aviation Department has not yet granted it an air operator's certificate.
Also i hear that the airline plans to operate a small fleet of Boeing 747-400 or Airbus A340-300 aircraft, starting with three planes and expanding to five within two years. Could commence business by the end of 2005 and will fly to some European cities like Berlin, Vienna, Cologne and Milan.
