According to another aviation website, Oasis Hong Kong are holding slots for a 4x weekly HKG - MAN service (days1246) arriving MAN at 0910 and departing MAN at 1150. Effective from summer timetable introduction.

Anyone over in HKG know anymore?

Oasis HK does have Manchester as one of its planned routes on its website.
I'd be delighted if the flight was introduced. Could be successful given the HK/Chinese population in LPL/MAN area.

Cathay won't fly MAN direct it seems if it can't get rights through MOW. Would prefer to see Cathay rather than Oasis in MAN though, but there probably is room for only one.

If it is a non-stop HKG-MAN flight, then a 0910 arrival in MAN would mean a 0200/0300 departure from HKG.

Perhaps the flight will make a stop somewhere in Europe before arriving in MAN? Maybe Berlin, Milan or Cologne?

The comment on the 'other' thread claims it will route via Dusseldorf, but given that DUS is not one of the cities shown on Oasis' map of proposed destinations, and I don't recall has ever been mentioned by them, I remain skeptical and suspect this news of being, perhaps, an enthusiast's wishful thinking.

I had always been led to believe that any MAN route would be paired with CGN.

Fingers crossed for an '08 launch!

Reported on another site, supposedly from an internal email?

'It is with great pleasure that Oasis Hong Kong airlines are now able to tender cargo contracts on their up and comming routes:

Hong Kong-Oakland-Hong Kong (15/5/08)

And

Hong Kong-Dusseldorf-Manchester-Hong Kong (18/8/08)

The aircraft used will be a Boeing 747-400 passenger jet capable of carrying up to 3 tonnes of belly cargo.

All tenders interested can send off for an information pack from: '

So say this goes ahead, how many seats would be available from MAN? Would they have rights over the MAN DUS sector?

I am assuming Oasis really pack 'em in with a mainly all economy cabin? So, we are looking at 450-500 deats?

I'd be very surprised if they got MAN-DUS sales rights.


I am a little surprised though as I was always understood that CGN was their planned gateway airport in Germany - particularly given its high LCC feed. DUS is of course very slot constrained, but maybe they have secured something suitable.

It may well be CGN goes ahead as planned in its own right, while DUS and MAN get the shared service.

Not at all - they have a sizeable (older generation) business cabin on the LGW services which they price very aggressively. something like 80 biz and 275 economy if i recall correctly.

If they are deciding to do it, then MAN and Oasis should be a very good fit.

Sounds a very good potential partnership, though of course it'll kill off any CX retirn, if that wasn't dead already.

Are their 744's new metal or from other carriers?

New passenger 744s are no longer built. The original Oasis machines are fairly old ex. Singapore/Air Atlanta aircraft but they are due to take the three newest All Nippon 744s (JA403/4/5A) which are actually quite new.

Oasis are a very good example of what I consider to be a perfect fit for Manchester. A good value business class product will go down a treat - no First class to try to sell, and more budget conscious travellers will be happy with a short stop at DUS in order to fly from their local airport and not have to change aircraft. This is a much better concept than the ultra low cost carriers (Air Asia X) offering a cramped, very basic product which won't appeal to the higher end of Manchester's market, whereas Oasis will.

Let's hope that the bottom falls out of the F-class market down south and we might get more of the cake!

From their website:

Our first two 747-400s were maintained by Singapore Airlines. The other new aircraft, were maintained by All Nippon Airways, are amongst the youngest Boeing 747-400s in the world and are in perfect condition.

They have left it late to promote the service. I am already booking 2009 early Jan and certainly the peak Christmas stuff is becoming very full. Most seats are being sold on a nonrefundable ticket so clients will not be able to change. So please get it on sale soon.
