Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Gong Xi Fa Cai! Year of the Rabbit.
We are so excited that, for the first time in several years, our friends and colleagues in China will be able to celebrate and spend time with their loved ones this Spring Festival without any restrictions!
After more than 1,000+ days of isolation, the reopening of China to the outside world will make this year’s celebrations even more special.
We also realize that while great news long-term for the country, the rapid reopening has created challenges and difficulties for people on the ground.
Our sincerest thoughts and prayers are with all the people of China as they battle through this current COVID surge.
Resiliency in the Year of the Rabbit!
It is so appropriate that 2023 is the Year of the Rabbit – a kind, energetic, and resilient animal representing patience and respecting others.
Like the rabbit, I am confident that the Chinese people who have endured so much throughout the pandemic will again show remarkable resiliency and courage as they work to reopen their businesses and the country’s economy.
Big Year for Universal China and APAC in 2023!
As a company, we can’t wait to once again support missions to and from one of the world’s top economies.
China’s reopening will significantly boost the Asia-Pacific and global economy, and our Universal Aviation China team members are eagerly awaiting your return.
Our team members report that life on the ground is quickly returning to how it was pre-pandemic, minus some businesses struggling with staffing due to the COVID outbreak.
We’re all confident that this wave will crest soon and that travel to China will increase quickly. Our team is ready and eager to see you!
And for the rest of Universal Asia!
Our Universal Teams on the ground are geared up and ready to receive customers in Japan, Korea, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and The Maldives, where we reduce your stress and operating risk as you arrive into the capable arms and family of your Universal Team.
Do you have any plans to/from China and Asia this year?
I’d love to hear from you about how the reopening impacts your operational planning for 2023.
Until then, Gong Xi Fa Cai! Happy Chinese New Year!
Bright days are ahead!
