Hong Kong Express names new president

HNA Group LCC Hong Kong Express has named a senior executive from its sister carrier Hong Kong Airlines as its new president. Li Dianchun took over the new role Oct. 31. He was previously CCO of Hong Kong Airlines, which is also a member of HNA Group.

Former HK Express head Andrew Cowen was replaced in October after a wave of negative publicity surrounding the cancellation of 18 flights over a peak holiday period. The cancellations were partly caused by staff shortages that were reportedly related to a labor dispute.

HK Express stressed that among Li’s priorities in his new role will be “strengthening communication between staff and management, as well as enhancing management efficiency and operational stability.”

He will be responsible for day-to-day management of the LCC, working closely with Zhong Guosong, who was promoted to executive chairman of HK Express recently.
