New Hong Kong airline spreads its wings, seeking over 100 routes

Chinese tycoon expands aviation operation with A-list executive team

HONG KONG -- Hong Kong-based Greater Bay Airlines has applied for 104 routes, taking the upstart carrier another step closer to officially competing with rivals in a city that serves as one of Asia's top international hubs.

In the application filed Friday, 48 of the routes are to mainland cities, including Beijing and Shanghai. The airline intends to fly to 13 destinations in Japan, as well as flights to Singapore and other major Southeast Asian countries. Greater Bay applied in July for an aviation operation license.
