The airline is seeking new investors and has applied for a voluntary liquidator.Oasis first flew in October 2006, offering flights from London to Hong Kong for as little as 1,000 Hong Kong dollars (£65) each way.

It later added flights from Hong Kong to Vancouver.

Passengers were left stranded in Hong Kong, the U.K. and Canada.
