Dragonair Boosts Services to Kaohsiung and Destinations in Mainland China

Dragonair will increase frequencies on its services to Kaohsiung and a number of destinations in Mainland China with effect from the summer schedule.

From 27 March, the number of flights to the southern Taiwan city will rise from 32 flights per week to 42 - a total of six return services every day. In Mainland China, one more daily flight will be added to Xiamen, for a total of four per day. Three more flights a week will be added to Ningbo making a total of 10 flights weekly.

In order to match seasonal demand, the summer schedule will also see increases in services to Nanjing, Chengdu and Chongqing. The number of flights to Chongqing will rise to daily, while services to both Nanjing and Chengdu will rise to twice daily over the summer. In addition, upgrades to an A330-300 aircraft will add more capacity on other flights, including one of the three daily flights to Hangzhou and one of the two daily flights to Fuzhou starting from 27 March and 1 May respectively

Dragonair Chief Executive Officer James Tong said: "Demand to and from Mainland China and Taiwan has been increasing since last year and we are happy to be able to strengthen services in these two key markets to meet our customers' needs.

"The additional flights will offer more choice and convenience to our passengers and at the same time further boost Hong Kong as the premier aviation hub in the region."
