Cathay Pacific, the largest Hong Kong-based airlines, said Wednesday that it would do all it can to help passengers stranded as a result of Oasis Hong Kong Airlines canceling all of its passenger services from Wednesday.

"We sympathize with the many passengers in Hong Kong, London and Vancouver who have been stranded by the Oasis' decision, and we will do our very best to help them through this difficult and stressful period," Cathay Pacific Chief Executive Tony Tyler said in a statement.

He announced that two additional flights to London would be added in the early hours on Friday and Sunday to existing services with priority given to the large number of schoolchildren returning to Britain at the end of the current school term break this weekend.

A number of seats would be set aside on these as well as scheduled flights, where possible, to accommodate the returning students.

"We hope our contingency arrangements can accommodate as many as possible of the school children affected, and take people home who have been stranded by the closure," Tyler added.

Special ticketing arrangements have been made to help Oasis customers who had confirmed bookings on the airline over the next two weeks, he said.

Oasis, a Hong Kong-based budget carrier, had gone into liquidation with all its flights suspended, the company's Chief Executive Steve Miller announced here Wednesday.

Oasis launched services in 2006 and has proved popular, particularly with students, due to its low prices.
