Following is the transcript of remarks by the Secretary for Transport and Housing, Mr Frank Chan Fan, at a media session after attending the meeting of the Legislative Council Subcommittee on Matters Relating to Railways today (December 6):
Reporter: Can you tell us the latest surrounding the situation regarding the airline and looking forward, is it necessary for the Government to possibly step up to help the airline or help passengers that may be affected?
Secretary for Transport and Housing: As I have mentioned earlier that the Hong Kong Airlines has responsibility to take care of its passengers in its best endeavour. Therefore, should any passenger feel aggrieved or feel it necessary, they should contact the Hong Kong Airlines for follow up.
Reporter: And the latest situation regarding the licence?
Secretary for Transport and Housing: The Air Transport Licensing Authority (ATLA) has received the response from the Hong Kong Airlines and is now reviewing the submitted information. The ATLA will look into it or is in the process of looking into it and will announce its decision on December 7 or earlier.
