Okay Airways gets green light to return to skies

CHINA'S first private airline Okay Airways will resume operation of passenger flights tomorrow after a near two-month suspension caused by financial and management problems.

The aviation regulator said Okay has met all requirements for the resumption of service, the carrier said in an e-mail today.

The Tianjin-based carrier will resume some passenger flights tomorrow, including Tianjin-Harbin, Tianjin-Changsha-Kunming, Tianjin-Zhuhai-Sanya, Tianjin-Taiyuan-Chongqing, Tianjin-Nanjing-Quanzhou, Tianjin-Chengdu and Tianjin-Sanya.

Other flights will resume on February 1, it said.

Wang Junjin, the airline's legal representative and chairman of JuneYao Group, Okay's biggest shareholder, last month applied to the Civil Aviation Administration of China for suspension of passenger flights due to financial and management problems.

The regulator approved the application and ordered the company to suspend its services from December 15 to January 15. Okay halted its flights several days before December 15.
