"OASiSHONGKONG" Ready For Oct Launch.

Tue Sep 05, 2006 2:24 am

Thats not a mistake in the topic, their name would seem to be written like that. http://www.oasishongkong.com/

Site is not ready yet, think they are just setting it up. Tickets have gone on sale.

Pics of the launch here but its a VERY slow site..... http://news.carnoc.com/list/74/74454.html

Thanks N754PR for the update  Smile

It seems like Oasis have changed their style since we first heard of them a few months back  Smile

I like the sceme and design very much, I wish them all the best  Smile

Also on a side note....which terminal will be used at LGW, North or South?

Dont hold your breath.

I've had conversations with Oasis. They will try to get their initial Europe route operational and solid before they spread their wings further, particularly across the Pacific.

As result they have not even begun and US certification/route applications. In addition they are far from being certain that OAK let along the Bay Area will be their first North America destination.

They also face issues with availability of passenger B744s at reasonable rates as the type has strong demand for freighter conversions.

My feeling is that their business model might see changes to become more of a regional player especially if Dragon Air gets completely absorbed by Cathay instead of a pure longhaul low fare operation.

If they can't get Oakland then they will go to Chicago....... they are now also looking at 777's due to the shortage of 744's.

And if they go for Chicago...I bet CX will step up too.

Interesting they would look at 777s to. Are there that many up for resale or lease?

a report from the HKG SCMP news is that they have applied to fly to YVR last month in HKG hopefully within 2007 when (as u've said) they have enough aircrafts ...maybe another option to start their NorthAmerican routes

The CX/KA issue might have changed Oasis Biz model cos their very low fare in Y will be only 10% of their 271 seats. And their 81 J class seats using the current lie-flat angled seat and the Y is the 32" and all seats with PTVs....just like most of the other airlines......anyway I'm quite optimistic with them!

They will start operations with Air Atlanta's TF-AMA and TF-AMB, right? These frames were used by Iberia until July 1st and previously they were Singapore birds.

Yes that is correct.

LGW is the first route. CGN is most likely to be next. They also have authority to fly to Milan in Europe too.

They want OAK and YVR in N.America as their first two destinations - remains to be seen if they get them.

At the moment it looks like being a South Terminal operation.

I'm not sure about the name. Plus I'm not sure about their ops. They say it's an LCC but I don't think many would like to fly a bus for 10 hours. Lets see what their definition of an LCC is.

well....from the HKG news SCMP article...Oasis doesn't sound like a LCC except the 10% approx 27 seats (HKD1000/way) in Y and for J (a secret) on each flight will be sold at extremely Low fare......the rest......just like the current market price u can get from travel agents

They are not just like the market rates.

Their normal return to London is about 5500 HK$ incl tax.... you find that on CX or BA during the normal months of the year..... you will not. In the low season Yes but in the low season OASiS will do the same.

Just out of interest whats the IATA/ICAO codes going to be for OASiS? Just been looking at their site. Looks good. Would consider flying them to HKG to keep costs down.

Their IATA code is O8. Don't know their ICAO

Also Y Class pax don't get complimentary drinks while meals and entertainment is included in the fare.

No complimentary drinks for Y Class on a flight 11+ hours  Wow!

The Oasis Hong Kong website still states OAK as one of its desired N. American gateways. I would have to challenge your thoughts.

I checked OASiS (that how they spell their name) website, read almost all of it and I got some questions about them.
If I assume they're a "sort-of-a-LCC", Why fly to LGW but not STN instead? In London, STN seems to be a more LCC oriented airport than LGW and IMHO LTN (with no jetways) isn't the right aiport for such a long-haul operation.
2 destinations in Germany aren't too much for them? CGN only could be enough to start with; CGN has both the LCC base and huge market base.
MXP seems to be a good destination choice, but do the LCC serving Milano use another airport instead of MXP?
I understand why they would want to fly to OAK from HKG, but howcome ORD? ORD isn't a major LCC airport in the U.S.A.

By flying into OAK, do they expect to hook up with WN, the major LLC flying from there? WN has an Interline agreement with ATA at OAK. So is OASIS thinking about starting an Interline with WN or rely on the O&D market of the SF Bay Area?

It will be interesting how that turns out. According to their website, the claim that OAK has great connection opportunities. I'm sure WN or B6 would be definite possibilities.

The original plan was STN, but LGW was seen as a much better option with a much better population catchment and profile Also thanks to U2, LGW has plenty of LCC onward connections to main points in Europe. STN may have more LCCs, but the O&D possibilities are less attractive than for LGW.

CGN is the first German city they have rights for. Maybe they will look for another but I'd be surprised. I think they will serve other countries next.
