Chinese tycoon bets on Hong Kong travel rebound with new airline

Greater Bay Airlines has leased three jets and is hiring up to 500 staff

Greater Bay Airlines, which takes its name from Chinese President Xi Jinping's pet project to integrate Hong Kong and Macao with Shenzhen, Guangzhou and other cities in Guangdong Province, has started hiring staff and preparing paperwork and aircraft to be able to take to the skies by mid-2021.
