Hainan Airline’s Origin and Ownership
Hainan Airlines traces its roots back to 1989 as Hainan Provincial Airlines in Hainan, China. The airline was known as to be one of the fastest developing airlines in China. The Hainan Province’s airline’s aim was to provide eastern hospitality and customer-oriented services. The first inaugural flight was from Haikou to Beijing in 1993 and in 1997, the name was officially changed to “Hainan Airlines Co., Ltd.”
Chen Feng is a 62-year old Chinese board of director in HNA Group. Mr. Feng is the chairman and founder of Hainan Airlines. He is a graduate of Lufthansa College Air Transportation Management in Germany and also pursued advanced studies for senior management in Harvard Business School.
Hainan Airlines’ (HNA) main bases are at Beijing Capital, Haikou Meilan and Xi’an Xianyang International Airport. HNA now has 148 aircraft serving 90 destinations worldwide and is continuously nominated as Asia’s Leading Airline and had been awarded for the third consecutive year as a 5-star airline by Skytrax in 2013.

The Website and Mobile app
Initially, the website will be asking travelers to select their country and language, this will direct them to the mainpage wherein customers can search for flights, check flight status, check-in online and manage their bookings. The yellow icon shown as “Flash Info” provides the latest updates on the airline’s policies and services or other relative aviation news. The majority of the page shows flashing images promoting their latest deals, offers and Fortune Wings Club frequent flyer program.
Since it is known that airlines extend their service via mobile phones, Hainan Airlines sees to it their mobile app was updated for customer’s convenience. The updated travel app of the airline had a larger display screen and more functions like checking flight status, booking flights, check-in online and booking management similar to the airline’s website version. Now it’s not only available in the App store but also in the Google Play store.
The airline gathered an overall score of 7 out of 10 on Airlineratings.com and judging through the most recent Hainan Airlines reviews, passengers are really looking forward to fly again with them. They were even noted with the best cabin service and best domestic airline. What made customers really happy is they were treated like valued customers.

The attitude of the HNA people in providing consistent and efficient customer service was their key to their success. As of now, Hainan Airlines is on the 22nd spot out of The World’s Top 100 Airlines according to Skytrax.
