Want to know what is HMY really stands for other than Harmony ???
, as told by a senior executive at HMY Airways, the story goes back to early 2002 when Dr. David Ho wanted to start an airline. He used his mother's first Chinese initial M, and his much respected grand father's first Chinese initial Y, and thus becoming MY
Airways. But My Travel Air which had charter flights to Canada at that time, filed a complain sitting the name was too close to theirs. It was decided to add the letter H which is his last name Ho to the front of MY
, thus making it HMY Airways.
It is important to note that the word Harmony was on the first consideration list, putting HMY also can be a short-form for HarMonY. This is how the current rebranding is based upon.
Also for your information on the livery and logo of HMY Airways - the three yellow 'streamers' on the tail represent Heaven, Earth, and People - the three virtues that compose Harmony in the Chinese culture. The three streamers comes together along the entire fuselage bring harmony to the Airline and its passengers. Yellow is also the imperial Chinese colour, representing the owner's ethnic background. The three 'streamers' actually represent the tail of a Chinese dragon (Dr. Ho was born in the Year of the Dragon !!) flying majestically in the calm light blue sky. The lower fuselage royal blue colour represent the 7 Seas of the world, thus bringing 'Harmony' to wherever HMY Airways flys.
Now is that interesting !!
I know HMY Airways very well, and can report to you later on its development. Just to assure you, they are not the type like Westjet and Jetsgo. They have fares that match these 2 discount carriers, but their larger B757 do have room to move fares higher catered for other market segment.
I hope the info are good reading materials.
