This from Wikipedia:

Oasis Hong Kong Airlines, established in February 2005, is a budget airline based in Hong Kong, with its hub at the Hong Kong International Airport. It will commence service in long-haul passenger flights between Hong Kong and Europe, and between Hong Kong and United States in early 2006, with Boeing 747-400 aircraft. Oasis Hong Kong Airlines is founded by a Pastor, Rev. Raymond C. Lee, and his wife, Priscilla H. Lee. The chief executive, Steve Miller, was founder and first chief executive of Dragonair.

Oasis is Hong Kong's first budget, long-haul passenger airline. Starting in 2006, Oasis will offer non-stop service to London, Milan, Berlin, Cologne/Bonn (Germany) and destinations in the U.S. (Oakland, Chicago) for the same price as many travelers presently pay for a 1- or 2-stop flight.

The destinations Oasis will fly to are all leading budget carrier hubs. London Gatwick and Berlin, for instance, are hubs for the UK's leading budget carrier, easyjet which serves over 30 European destinations. Cologne Bonn Airport is a leading hub for the German low cost airline Germanwings.

And a website with nothing too definite on it: http://www.oasis-air.com

Also, Cathay have objected to them being granted an AOC.

I had heard of this, but was aware that Gatwick was going to be their London airport, as mentioned in the article above.
