Hainan Airlines names new Chairman and President. Xinhua Airlines to become wholly-owned subsidiary

Hainan Airlines has named a new executive team and Chairman ahead of a highly anticipated listing of HNA Group's aviation arm, Grand China Air.

Consolidation and high-speed rail squeezing out China’s second-tier carriers?
