New budget airline Jetstar Hong Kong said Friday it has sold a total of six of its aircraft because it is taking longer than expected to get a licence to operate.
The airline, which is a joint venture between Australia's Qantas, China Eastern Airlines and Hong Kong-based Shun Tak Holdings applied for regulatory approval in 2012 in the southern Chinese city.
An airline will only be given a operation license if its principle place of business and centre of its decision-making is in Hong Kong, according to local laws.
"Jetstar Hong Kong can confirm the sale of a further three aircraft, now a total of six Airbus 320s, with three remaining in the fleet for launch," the airline's chief executive officer Edward Lau told AFP in an email.
The airline sold three A320s this month, and three in April.
"This has been an unfortunate but prudent business decision made by the Jetstar Hong Kong board as the regulatory approvals are taking longer than initially expected," Lau said, adding that the sale doesn't affect the firm's readiness once approval is given.
Lau said Jetstar is working "closely" with the government and is "confident of gaining all the necessary approvals".
The catalogue price of the latest sale of three A320s this month is $281.7 million, according to Dow Jones Newswires.
The regulatory approval for the airline has also faced opposition from the city's flag carrier Cathay Pacific, which says the airline is not based in Hong Kong.
"The whole Jetstar network is part of an Australian entity and certainly can't pass the test of being principally based here in Hong Kong," Cathay's chairman John Slosar had said earlier this month, Dow Jones reported.
Qantas owns the Jetstar brand and has other joint ventures in Japan, Singapore and Vietnam.
Shipping and property giant Shun Tak Holdings, founded by Hong Kong tycoon Stanley Ho, bought a third of Jetstar Hong Kong for $66 million in June of last year, helping its bid to set up locally.
Hong Kong-listed Shun Tak is run by managing director Pansy Ho, daughter of Stanley, who is also a Macau casino mogul.
The low-cost carrier plans to fly to destinations in China, Japan, South Korea and Southeast Asia.
