Profitable Hainan Airlines 'still single'; Driving international expansion organically

Premium Analysis

Hainan Airlines and HNA Aviation Group chairman Wang Yingming has said the airline has decided to remain outside the global alliances fold for now, commenting that Hainan Airlines is "still single because we don't want to marry early." Instead, the profitable carrier plans to accelerate international network expansion organically - a higher risk option. Hainan Airlines will receive 10 aircraft this calendar year, increasing its seat capacity by 11%, with the majority of the planned capacity to be introduced in 2H2011.
