Hainan Sells The 787 At Its Conference In China

Randy Tenseth is not leaning back in his chair thinking about where to go next in his constant pursuit of selling Boeing Aircraft. He is deviously planning taking  over the world  with nothing but, Boeing Aircraft. China is a burgeoning market with a few New 787's flying to and fro. Both Hainan and China Southern are making a Chinese splash. Something Airbus at this time cannot brag about, but will shortly try to brag upon as  entry into service is nearing with its newly minted A350's. 

Meanwhile back at the big shows, especially in China , Hainan is taking the lead sales position at the 2014 World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) Global Summit. The is a mouth full just saying it. Randy picks up a phone and  calls Chen Feng, HNA Group Chairman, and says, " How's it going, ...ah huh, .... Gnarly Dude!" No Randy doesn't talk like that, but I do, so I added my own speaking  font, just North of San Diego's speaking font. The point being is that Hainan knows it has become one of the leading Airlines in its region. Somehow, owning the 787 is so fashionable, because of what it brings to the table. So to the table they go, at the 2014 WTTC Global Summit. Randy, sits back and enjoys the ride. Randy's customers are selling 787's. Now he needs to go out and ask how many 787's, and tell them when to deliver those superb flying machines.

SANYA, China - The 2014 World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) Global Summit, the annual event for tourism organizations worldwide, was held from April 23 to 25, 2014 in Haitang Bay, Sanya, Hainan. To facilitate dialogue among the travel industry's decision makers, the event, themed "Changing world, new perspectives," focused on major issues facing the global tourism industry today. Diamond sponsor Hainan Airlines, a member of HNA Group, was a key participant. HNA Group chairman Chen Feng gave one of the summit's key speeches. The event, which brought together industry leaders and the media, hosted discussions on topics like development of China's and Hainan's tourism industries, demonstrating the vitality and prospects of their tourism sectors.
Hainan Airlines' booth at the summit attracted numerous visitors during the entire event through its booth design, route recommendations, and its on-site exhibit of cabin offerings. This demonstrated its many worldwide successes achieved in recent years as well as its plan to add new international routes going forward.
"As an important member of HNA Group and a SKYTRAX 5-Star Airline, Hainan Airlines is China's only airline that operates the Boeing 787 Dreamliner on the North American routes. We will also offer nonstop service from Beijing to Boston, beginning on June 20th, marking a further improvement of our North American routes network," said Hu Yi, general manager of marketing at Hainan Airlines. Hu further added that Hainan Airlines provides passengers with five-star services on its major flights, including Bvlgari amenity kits, molecular gastronomy offered by chefs from Taiwan, as well as the Spanish Torres Sangre de Toro wine, winner of the Best First Class and Business Class Wines on the Wing awards by Global Traveler.
With its growing fleet, addition of the 787 Dreamliner to its fleet, roll out of new international routes, and continued offering of The Beauty of the Orient service, Hainan Airlines has grown into an international airline with comprehensive routes throughout China that connect the country to Asia, Europe, and North America. As the diamond sponsor of the WTTC Global Summit, Hainan Airlines has demonstrated its commitment to the development of China's domestic tourism industry and transformation of Hainan into an international tourism destination, connecting travelers from China and around the world with this stunning and magnificent island.

With electronic scissors in hand I will put this in my scrap book, Everyone else have a great day.

Now I am in a serious font of mind. (Not possible). Randy's team of hard workers is starting to really pay off when you have customers telling audiences "how we roll", with the 787. They are explaining they are unlocking "The West". Unlocking the Orient is so 1850. Hainan has supreme sailing ships happily taking customers westward for both vacations and business. Hainan can fly "Go West Yong Ming" or go East to get to the west. It doesn't really matter which way you go, Hainan will get you there, that is our secret (not). We have  Hot deals settling through the tea infuser and out comes the best fuel sipping West, erh, East of the Yangtze  river. The point is, we will reach the World in four directions. Flying West Europe is Just there, and Flying East you have North America. Flying South you have vacations with both Australia and New Zealand, "savvy"? A hand goes up in the back of the room, "What about North". Answered smartly, " I'm glad you asked that question, Yes We Can, next question!" The conference is lead by Hainan people and they are selling its leadership position from Hainan Provence, or in Randy speak, "The 787".
