HNA developed airports and travel servicesSERVICE LEADERHNA was not competing with Big Three domestically and internationally

HNA was expanding in 2nd and 3rd tier counties and spoke cities developing airports and travel servicesSTRATEGIC EXPANSIONHNA worked closely with central and local government officials and demonstrated positive results and growth

HNA improved Chinas economy by depending solely on private and public investmentRELATIONSHIP WITH GOVERNMENTHNA had a unique corporate culture that combined both Chinese heritage and western management

CORPORATE CULTUREHNA focused on modern management practices

HNA committed to training its staff in global management, strategy, and serviceTRAINING PROGRAMS

ANALYSIS | The Issue

International Competition

Rising Cost


ANALYSIS | Recommendation

Develop connectivity of more provinces, tier 2 and tier 3, avoiding big 3, by getting government support and increase new routes

Keep the social aspect going

The HNA group companies are complementing each other. Only aircraft maintenance and catering are not a part of it and these can be considered to keep HNA Group even more vertically integrated.

Focus on differentiating from Big Three through quality and capture the incoming international population. Upgrade the service quality to fight the competition that will come after Open skies and other liberalization agreements.

Expand charter flights division. number of MNCs and epats increasing.

Alliance with international carriers for domestic transfers in china and vice versa for International strategy

Brand equity is medium in Southeast Asia. Try to increase the dominance by increasing more routes. Acquisition of small players can be an option.
