Great Wall Airlines

Wed Sep 13, 2006 1:02 am

I have a question about Great Wall Airlines:

As far as I have read online a few weeks back they suspended their operations by the end of August 2006.

Is that a fact or am I wrong?

I appreciate your comments.

Great Wall Airlines unfortunately suspended operations around mid to late August 2006 due to sanctions against its majority shareholder Great Wall Industry Corp by the U.S. Treasury department who froze all its U.S. related assets.

The sanctions are simply unreasonable as they have nothing to do with Great Wall Airlines.

The Airline cannot operate as suppliers such as Jeppesen and Boeing Company are unable to provide the airline support.

Thanks Singapore_Air

Do you know what will happen to their 2 B744Fs?

Pure speculation on my part: they are stuck in PVG?

Do you think they will be returned to Singapore Airlines or is there any chance for Great Wall Airlines to start over again?
